Time to make another masculine birthday card for a family member. Although I followed a sketch I was inspired by the background paper - cars, trucks, buses, etc. and the banner with the checkered flags. I think I like the checkered flags the best.
This was a simple construction - a panel of patterned paper adhered to a panel of yellow cardstock, then next the banner with edges sponged with black ink and finally the sentiment. The sentiment was also cut from paper, matted with yellow cardstock and adhered using foam tape for dimension. The VW Beetle was die cut from the patterned paper and matted with another die cut circle. The entire assembly was adhered to a card base of white cardstock. The inside was decorated with a strip of the patterned paper.
