Vintage Road Trip

Happy Birthday to Dean -  he is always talkin' of a road trip!  The technique to achieve this look was shown to our Stampe Diem group.  The images of the cars were stamped on the 'female side' of the Embossing Folder and then the CS was embossed with my Cuttlebug.  I had to finish a lot of the lines with a pen and then carefully color them with Copics so as not to get it on the trees... this took me longer than you would imagine!  The birch were shaded with a light grey ink pad gently wiped over the top of the tree trunks.

Inside was a simple sentiment with a red grosgrain ribbon as the only embelishment - the same ribbon is tied in a bow for the front.
I really like the masculinity of this card.
