Vintage Car

Hi Crafters

I'm back to share another card today... to catch up somehow my 'to blog' folder is overflowing :)

This was ordered for a neighbour to give to her brother.

Image - Vintage Car
Papers - Docrafts Chronology Paper Pad  (it's old but I still have some)
Core'dinations cardstock
TH Cogs embossing folder
Sizzix Hardware Findings Die
MB Steampunk Corner Die
X-Cut Single Cogs Die
Clearly Besotted 'Brother' Stamp and Die Set
Tonic Numbers Die
Britannia 'Happy Birthday' Word Dies
Clear Embossing Powder

I've had a set of vintage car pictures on my computer forever so when this order came in I knew exactly what to use. I  love Steampunk and so have been hoarding these papers from Docraft but thought they would be perfect along with the various cog dies that I own. A little inking around the edges, highlighted with clear embossing powder and 'voila' :)

Challenges I'd like to enter:
Cardz 4 Guyz - #94 Numbers
Try It On Tuesday - Lots of Layers
Aud Sentiments - #143 Birthday Sentiment
Brown Sugar - #169 ATG
Crafty Card Makers & More - #150 Autumn Colours

Take care everyone,

Aww, Rainey - great textures in this one! I love the Phillips Head screw, the gloss to the 60, the cogs and the texture of the ribbon[?] Can't quite figure if that is real or really great DP! I'm sure your neighbor will love it. Thank you for sharing your project and creativity with us at Aud Sentiments for our Birthday Sentiment challenge!
