If masculine cards are not your forte, you're not alone, it's not mine either. However, a great challenge is one that makes you face your nemesis and so that's exactly what the ladies over at
Our Creative Corner are doing this week for their challenge.
The minute I read it, I knew I had to make a card about cars. The theme is...
Men's Passion, Hobby or Interest.
How flippin' fun is that? Sooo fun!
So, here's what my man loves....
If it's got wheels, an exhaust (loud preferably) and goes 0-60 in some stupid crazy time, he's all about it.
I researched the new 2013 Boss 302; which he is currently drooling over, but I couldn't find the exact picture I wanted, so I changed gears (Ha! I just made an unintentional pun there) and went with a classic '57 Chevy.
The background is a cool image of a garage and coffee shop back in the good ol' days (coffee is another passion of his) and thought it would make the perfect backdrop for this red beast.
I printed the car out twice, cut out the silver fin and wheels from the second picture and layered them over the first for more depth with foam squares. Placed the old $0.15 magazine image the SoCal ad, Missouri map, route 66 Missouri sign, Cruisin' sign, the Fire Chief gas pump and silly sign that says "Still plays with cars" and I thought I was done...LOL!
You can't put a car on display without a sweet wax job, duh!
Can you see the gnarly shine on that red boat? That's the handy work of my husband using Glossy Accent! He was right, that looks sooooo way better.
Anywho...that's my card and I had a fantastic time creating this vintage masculine card for the challenge theme over at Our Creative Corner here.
Maybe someone else out there can relate to their man's love of cars. I don't get it. Then again, they probably don't completely grasp our love of colored sparkly glue either.
Hope you're having a great week so far!
Thanks for Cruisin' by my blog....
