Father's Day Card

A while back I finally broke down and bought the diamond plate Cuttlebug folder.  I kept seeing projects with that pattern embossed on them and thought it would be one that would work well on masculine cards.

The truck is from SU Loads of Love stamp set.  I printed the "DAD" and then just punched it with circle punches.  I colored the image using Promarkers.  This card was inspired by one on Splitcoast Stampers.



The truck was stamped onto white cardstock, then scanned into my computer.  It was flipped horizontally and resized in my card software.  I find that I'm using my computer more and more these days for this type of item.

What a great way to resize a stamped image! Thought about doing that, but always thought it would reduce the quality of the lines. Guess not! Love the colors and the embossed strip looks really cool!

HAHA, I wondered how the truck was backwards. I love that stamp set. Great card!

I'm impressed, Linda. I think I need computer lessons from you!

Very cute card. I have always admired that SU set, but never broke down to buy it.

Have you seen Stephanie Bernard's version of it this month?

I have that stamp set and it's nice, isan't it. I have the embossing folder too. I've accumulated a lot of "manly" embossing folders which now outnumber my 'feminine' ones. GREAT JOB.

Great card Linda.
My sweetie loved old cars/trucks.
I need this set to make a few fathers day cards. Love the tracks on the silver.
I have that embossing folder.
