Sweet Sunday Sketch-SSSC84

It’s so great to playing along with Karen’s Sweet Sunday Sketch! I’m challenging myself to use the stamps and goodies that I bought at CHA so they don’t sit unloved.

So today’s card uses Papertrey’s Enjoy the Ride. Four of my nieces are getting close to driving age (a few are on the road already), so this is a late birthday card for one of them. My MIL drives a VW bug so we could see a young driver behind the wheel. Scary!

I’ve changed up the sketch a little (maybe more than a little), but when Karen showed me the original cocktail napkin I think the elements are there, Baby!





I found a digital tire tread and printed it before cutting with the nestie label. The curved edge on the patterned paper and black mat are just randomly cut with my X-Acto retractable pen knife—love that thing! Other similar knives haven’t really compared for me. The car is stamped in SU summer sunshine rocked with Memento cantelope, then overstamped with the outlined image in Memento tuxedo black. Couldn’t resist the “Student Driver” mini label for the license plate! I stamped first—duh—so I had to cut a template with the bug die before placing the die over the image and everything worked out just fine. I added dots of liquid pearl (for Sankari) and glazed the back window and lights with crystal effects. With the die and solid stamp, this was a quick card!!

I think a few of the Sweet Sunday Gals might not be bloggin today, but start with Karen and enjoy the hop!

Hey, thanks for looking!
