Another Father's Day Card

Hi Crafters,
 
It's taking me a while to get back in to my stride since returning from my holiday but here is another Father's Day card that I made before I went away..
 
Recipe
Image - Papermania Stamp Set - Nostalgia 'Classic Cars'
Distress Inks
Heidi Swapp Large Background Chevron Stamp
White Embossing Powder
Verve Sentiment Stamp
Stampin' Up Word Window Punch
Star Brads
 
This card is similar in design to my previous Father's Day card but I swapped the image for a Porsche and heat embossed the background stamp with white embossing powder then used Distress ink over that.
 
Challenges I'd like to enter:
Crafty Card Makers and More - #141 For a Man or a Boy

OSAAT - #239 ATG with Men

One Crazy Stamper - June ATG

Well that's all from me, I do hope that tomorrow brings some sunshine, I'm fed up with the heavy rain showers of today.  Up side, I was able to get some cards made for the two craft fairs I have coming up on Friday and Saturday though as I was stuck in my room.
Have a fab evening.

Hi Lorraine, in answer to your question I use http://www.photopaperdirect.com/products/A4-170G-Matt-Coated-Inkjet-Photo-Quality-Paper.html from Photo Paper Direct for all of my printing - both images (including decoupage) and backing papers. They also do a 120 gsm one but I find the 170gsm is best. It's quite expensive but they are always having offers if you sign up for their newsletter. I hope this helps.
