Enjoy the Ride

May and June are busy months for my family. We have back-to-back birthdays, plus Mother's Day and Father's Day thrown in for good measure. Fortunately for me, I have plenty of new stamps to cover just about any occasion, including Papertrey Ink's Enjoy the Ride set:

I can tell this set is going to be addicting! The possibilities are endless with this one. And having the coordinating die is just a dream! This set wouldn't be nearly as fun if I had to cut out each and every little car by hand...lol. This particular card is for my step dad's birthday, so I had to guy it up a little. I also love A Little Argyle background set! Another versatile set that I'm going to turn to again and again. For the main image, I stamped my sentiment repeatedly on a circle of cardstock. The car I colored with Copic markers, toning the red down a bit with some brown tones. The headlights got a touch of Glossy Accents to add a more realistic look:

And...this card is actually a gift card holder! I made the card 4.5 inches square, but kept some extra length to fold in and create a pocket for my gift card. Easy peasy!


I have already dreamed up some more ideas for this little car image! Don't be surprised if you see this one again in the near future! Beep, beep!

What a great card! I think the argyle is a perfect "guy" background to the car. And I totally agree about the Enjoy The Ride set - it's very addicting! :)
