This month, the PTI Blog Hop Challenge is to make a masculine card. It just so happens that today is my son-in-law’s birthday (Happy Birthday, Roy!), and the card I made for him uses PTI’s Enjoy the Ride stamp set and die. Unfortunately I did not get it into the mail, so I’ll have to hand-deliver it to my daughter later today.
You may recognize the car from the nifty tutorial I did HERE about how to accurately die-cut images with solid dies (like PTI’s) – after they are stamped. If you have the same trouble I do with lining up the stamp with the die cut, this tutorial is for you!
I used BG Max & Whiskers paper for this card, since I was going for a dog theme here, and the colors were nice and masculine. The doggy in the car is my grandpuppy, Sugar, wishing her daddy a happy birthday. That stamp is from a little BG clear stamp set. I stamped her first on the white circle, then adhered the car (with the window trimmed out with a craft knife) on top of her. The sky and road are masked and airbrushed with Copic markers.
Enjoy the hop!
