Tuesday Trigger: Happy Birthday Dad!

My dad’s birthday is in a couple weeks so when I saw this week’s Tuesday Trigger over at Moxie Fab World, I thought it was a good color palette for a manly card, lol.

My dad is a car buff so I used a Cosmo Cricket Nutmeg chipboard on my card.  He’s also a big coffee drinker so I used the backside of a sleeve (corrugated cardboard) for some fun texture.  I messed up doing the sentiment (stamps by Practicing Creativity) so I did a re-do on a piece of white cardstock that I punched a Fiskar’s Upper Crest border on to.  And finally I added some faux stitching around the edges in turquoise because the block of white at the top of the card was too white, lol.  I hope he likes it!

  1. I really like the texture of your card — the tone on tone bracket punch against the white background, the corrugated cardboard — and the chipboard minivan is cute. :-)
