Cards for little boys are sometime tricky to make, but this set (Need for Speed) is the best! I made this card for my nephew who’s turning 8 and I had a lot of fun making it! I used foil paper and embossed it with the Chevron folder, for a very “cool” look! Here’s a little tip: Cut a piece of cardstock the size you want and cover it with foil, using snail adhesive to stick it. Cut your foil bigger than your piece of cardstock so you can wrap it around it, for a nice finish. Than run it through the Big Shot with your embossing folder.
For the car, I stamped it 3 times to make it appears like it’s going very fast. I colored the car with markers and with the ink and blender pen. The “Bonne Fete” is from Voeux Mignons and I used the “Bonne Fete des peres” stamp, but just used the 2 first words… We need to be creative since Stampin’up don’t give us many “Bonne Fete” stamp!!! (Tip: if you don’t want to stamp the whole image, just use your Stampin’ Marker on the part you want!)
I hope you like it! I think my nephew did!
