Masculine Birthday Card!

My father-in-law's birthday is today and I needed to make a card for him. The car stamp is an old one that I probably bought from Michael or Hobby Lobby. I used my Moon Glow embossing powder which has depth to it because it is "two-toned". I used my Cricut to cut the photo corners and then inked them. On the Stamp of Authenticity library card I used my new TimHoltz embossing powder. IT is different then most because it almost has a sandy appearance! I thought it needed some type of accent so I pulled this button out of my stash and added a little ribbon.

FYI: If you haven't already heard, Michaels is carrying the new Martha Stewart line...which of course I had to buy some of her paper. When I went up to the line to pay, I showed the check-out girl my coupon, and she proceeded to tell me that they can't use the 40% off coupon on her products, because Martha Stewart doesn't want that. I really hate that woman! I guess her billion dollar industry isn't enough! So ladies no 40% coupon on Martha Stewart items! : (

This is a beautiful card! I had to do a double take, cuz that car looked like it was lifted off the page. Awesome effect!

I read that on the bottom of the coupon about it excluding her products. Really annoyed me too. But I haven't made an effort to go look at the new stuff.
