I learned to drive in a green Ford Pickup. Not as old as this one from Honey Bee Stamps but still pretty old. The good thing about learning to drive a stick shift is once you get the clutch and gas down you can drive nearly anything.
I stamped it onto Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored it with Copic Markers. I then used the coordinating die to cut it out. Using the die sticky back foam was cut and added to the back of the car.
I wanted to add some visual interest behind the car and pulled out Sizzix’s Woven 3D Embossing Folder and embossed a smaller rectangle that would cut down using a stitched die. It was matted with some green cardstock from my stash.
I love the way that Honey Bee Stamps has coordinating dies for their sentiments. If you get their Car Show stamp set, you really need to get their You’re a Classic, which has perfect sentiments to go along with the vintage and classic cars in the set. I stamped a couple of the sentiments and cut them out with coordinating dies. I used the coordinating dies to also cut some sticky back foam and added it to the sentiments.
The embossed rectangle was added to a top folding A2 cardbase and then the car and sentiment were added with liquid glue and the card was done.
My friend said that “vintage” was worse than “classic” it meant you were even older. I reminded her we were going to be 69 this year and that was vintage and vintage is rare.
