The Classic Garage suite – something for every classic car lover, mechanic, motor head in the family. It’s ideal to create those great masculine cards. I’ve created many projects using this suite and find it has some great sentiments as well. However, when I get a stamp set, I try to picture it in a completely different setting or colour scheme to what is mainly being promoted. This makes me think more creatively and work in different colour schemes, giving me more options with stamp sets.
This classic car spoke ‘pink’ to me. Ok, I know it’s my favourite colour but I also chose it because it was so different to the strong colours which I had been previously working with for this set. I thought I really should create this card especially for the ladies.
I have used the Classic Garage Designer Series Paper as my background. The great part of double sided paper is that it has exactly that – 2 sides. The colour palette of this Designer Series Paper is Basic Black, Basic Gray, Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie, Real Red, Tranquil Tide, Very Vanilla, Whisper White. This Basic Gray muted background would work well with many colours and I loved how it looked with my Flirty Flamingo car.
I layered 2 ribbons together to create an accent on this card. The Glittered Organdy Black ribbon has just that enough sparkle for this card for the lady who loves her cars. The many dies make it easy to create the background with metallic foil.
The sentiment was stamped and punched with the pretty label punch. I created this look by using a shorter piece of cardstock so it squared the top and bottom. Just like us ladies who love our accessories, the metal key is the perfect accessory to complete the look.
