My wonderful Stampin’ Up! friend Julie DiMatteo asked her friends to make a card for her Dad’s birthday. Hopefully he will have a mailbox full of birthday wishes this month. I am sharing the card I made for him today.
My color combination for this card is
My beginning for this card was this lovely old truck from Country Livin’ stamp set. Then I asked myself how I could showcase it since it was for a special person. Of course it had to be red! It seems all the old trucks you see seem to be a faded red color. From there I quickly came up with a base of Crumb Cake , Real Red, and Old Olive. A great “Go To” color combination.
I have not used this layout in some time and I wonder why? It is so simple and really shows off with any stamp set. All you do is start with a panel that can be easily divided into thirds. That is all it takes.
The banner is from Banners For You and the “Happy Birthday” is from Happy Birthday Gorgeous. I fussy cut the banner. The truck is colored with Watercolor Pencils and an Aqua Painter.
Thank you so much for stopping by today. I love to read your comments.
