Formula 1......

Oh it is so good to be back on line, I have missed so much with having internet problems over the last few days seems like months to me lol. Now I shall hopefully try and catch up with your blogs and mine of course :O). It was truly like losing a limb :O(. I hope you will all forgive me for not leaving comments and will do my best over the next few days.

This card is for my wonderful grandson Ryan who loves car racing besides football, have made him so many of these that I had to do a different card otherwise he might think I can only do footie cards lol.
Recipe for this

Centura Pearl card
My Craft Studio  Papercraft Library Volume 6

I used  A4 Centura card and printed the background onto this.
 The main image was resized and the tyre tracks were added at the top and bottom
 I added a black surround behind the image, the ticket was added as well,
 I then printed another ticket and car so I could decoupage. The sentiment was also made in MCS.
 The inspiration for this came from a card that I saw in the Papercrafts Essentials magazine
 and decided to have a go.Folded the card so it was landscape,
 measured in 1 1/4 inches on each side and the bottom and cut the centre out sorry don`t do cm`s lol.
Cut a bar to go across so I could attach the image yes I could have used acetate but could not find it DOH.
attached the sentiment on the bottom and placed candy down each side.
I shall put the verse onto the reverse side of the image

  7. It looks really good. I like this style of card for men, it looks good without having to embellish too much and for a lady you can go OTT with embellishments . xxx
