Now for another card idea....
The card for today is a birthday card for a guy who's "A True Classic"!
Once again I dipped into my scrapbox so I don't have paper names for you. 
Just use whatever coordinating scraps you have.
1.  Stamp car and sentiment onto light yellow paper using black ink.  Mat with dark yellow paper.
2.  Using Distress Inks and water pen, color car.
3.  Distress edges of dark blue paper strips with Black Soot and attach to card.  Attach stamped piece as top layer.
4.  Punch hole where strips meet and attach hardware with brad.
5.  Punch six small dots from black cardstock and attach as shown.

--5" x 11" white cardstock folded in half (for card base)
--5" x 5.5" designer paper (for first layer)
--1" x 5" and 1" x 5.5" (for second layer strips)
--3.25" x 2.25" (for stamp & sentiment layer)
--3.75" x 2.5" (for sentiment mat)

These cards would be perfect for parents who plan on giving their children a car when the right time comes, hehe. They will already have a hint that a car is waiting in the garage! Wew, save the keys for the surprise!

Wonderful classic card and it's perfect for Fathers Day, except sadly our Car Classics Stamp Set has sold out - but good news is it's a digital set and all the images are larger, re-sizeable and it's only $9.95

Thanks so much for playing and posting in our May Linky Blog Party
