You're a Classic!

Cards for men are always the hardest to make - but thankfully there are a few products out there to help.
To make this card, I used a Spellbinders die (Labels Fourteen) to cut an aperture in white card. I then embossed the card using the Creative Expressions Brick embossing folder. To bring out the brick effect, I used Cut'n'Dry foam to blend some Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink around the edges. The car and sentiment stamps came from the Classic Cars unmounted stamp set from Creative Expressions. To colour the car, I dabbed some ink from the Chipped Sapphire and Broken China distress ink pads onto a non-stick craft sheet, and picked the ink up with a water brush to use as paint. This is a really easy way to give a watercoloured effect.
Once I had cut out the stamped car, assembled the card and stamped the sentiment, I used the Spellbinders Elegant Posts die to decorate the bottom right corner.
This card is much easier to make than it looks - why don't you give it a try?
