And an especial welcome to Wendy, my newest follower who has an awesome blog here, please pop over and say 'hi' to her.
This card was made with a specific recipient in mind, who has an engineering background.
The 'design paper' is a piece from an old Websters Encyclopaedia Dictionary, given to me for crafting. Once I found the tables I knew it would be perfect. So I tore it to size, and then distressed it with Vintage Photo and Faded Jeans D.I.
The car was a magazine freebie die I was given, it was cut from a low sheen metallic blue card
The sentiment from a new (to me) Newton's Nook stamp set Birthday Sentiments, heat embossed with copper E.P.
The Bakers Twine was on my desk, (it came with the sentiment set) and I wound it around three times and secured it with a knot.
The edges of the inside panel were brushed with the Faded Jeans ink, and then the sentiment from Riley Funny Bones stamped in Espresso Coffee - again the first use of the stamp.
I have heard that the recipient loved the card!
