Hello and welcome to my blog I am excited to share with you my first post as part of the Creative Crafting Uncles Design Team. Each month we will be bringing you a new challenge on the 15th. This month the theme was CARS. There are design team members from all over. Here’s a look at my card.
For my card today I went very minimalistic! I know very unlike me. I wanted to do something that was very striking but very graphic at the same time. So I stamped the car from the Geared Up Garage Stamp Set from Stampin’ Up! in Tuxedo black ink onto a piece of Thick Whisper White cardstock cut down to 4 3/4 x 3 1/2″. Once I had the car on there I took a die and draw a circle around the card. I then used my ruler to add some graphic lines that intersected the circle but didn’t go inside. Once I had the lines done I colored one in black and one in gray. I decided to leave the third the white of the paper for visual interest.
I added some black splitters with my Basic Black Stampin’ Write marker and then stamped the nuts from the stamp set to add a little triangle design. I finished off my card by stamping the sentiment in Tuxedo black ink under the car. I then added my focal piece to a card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals to add an additional layer and a little more subtle visual interest to the card. My card base was made from Thick Whisper White cut at 4 1/4″ x 11″ scored at 5 1/2″.
