This is the card that I made for my brother's birthday. This is also my submission for Bombshell Stamps' December sketch challenge, which ends in, oh, about 4 hours! :) Nothing like last minute, huh?
The car image is from Bombshell Stamps' Speed Shop stamp set. I used Stampin' Up's Basic Black for the card base. The next layer is SU's Christmas Cocoa DSP (or at least that's what I THINK it's called- I always have such a hard time with the names of the designer paper sets!). Next I attached 3 strips of SU silver metallic paper that was run through the Cuttlebug using the Diamond Plate embossing folder. The image is stamped using Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto GP110 white cardstock, and colored using Copic Markers. The grill and the bumpers of the car are colored using a silver metallic At-You Spica marker, although you can't see the bit of glitz in the picture. The main image is layered onto a scrap of Basic Black, and then I used the photo corner punch to punch out some red corners to 'frame' the image. The silver and black brads are both from Recollections (Michael's). I hope my brother likes this card- after all he IS a classic! :)
Make sure to check out Bombshell Stamps' Forum. They'll be having a brand new sketch challenge AND Ms. January will have a fabulous theme challenge for us all to play with! You can win a great prize by playing along with the challenges!
I hope that you all will have a very happy New Year- one filled with family, friends, love and good health!
