Good morning and happy Monday to you! Today is the day for the Crafty Secret's Design Team Challenge and Linky Party! This month's challenge is to create a patriotic or masculine project. I decided with Father's Day right around the corner that I would make a masculine card. I have a complete tutorial below on how this card was made. My projects always seem to take on a life of their own! ;)
I started with a digital copy of the Car Classics set by Crafty Secrets. I sponged the Route 66 image and cut out the little sign. I colored the car with my Spectrum Noir markers and punched it out with a circle punch. The edges were inked. I gave it a generous coating of glossy accents. I printed the polka dot paper from the Digital Retro Christmas papers pack. I cut various sized circles using my Spellbinder's dies.
I wanted the circles to have a black matte, so I cut out black pinking shear circles. I adhered the patterned paper to it. I added the map/Route 66 image to the center. I decided to hand sew a black border and the tied twine around the center.
I added the car, the sentiment, and a few sequins to finish the card off!

Have a great day!
