The card I made for my sons 21st birthday !
I wasn't quite sure what I wanted to make.
when I started this project.
It ended up evolving to somewhat resemble
the brand new Volkswagen Golf GTI he bought himself !

It is an easel card.
I don't have exact measurements.
The finished card is approximately 5 x 7.
It started with a 21 I hand drew and hand cut,
then I just kept adding to it.
The sentiment is computer generated.
It is mounted on a couple layers of card stock
and a strip of chipboard.
The sentiment strip needs a little bit of dimension
to catch the bottom edge of the card front
so it will stand up.
I used acrylic craft paints brushed onto rubber stamps
to make the plaid background.
I cut the center out since there was no need
to paint the entire piece since most of it
was going to be covered up.
This was made to resemble the plaid inserts on the seats.
Snap Stamps were used to create the Happy Birthday
banner. It was stamped with Versamark ink and heat
Real stitching on textured black card stock
resembles the stitched leather seats.
The hand drawn/hand cut 21 was run through
a birthday Cuttlebug embossing folder.
He got a kick out of it when he realized what it was
meant to resemble.
Thanks for looking =)
