Every Day is a Gift Card

Click HERE to see this week's Fantabulous Cricut project.  

It's time for "Manly Man" projects at My Craft Spot this week.


I decided to make a card using the antique car from Wrap it Up, and cut it from a variety of metallic cardstocks.  The car is popped for some added dimension.  The frame under the car is from Elegant Edges and I embossed the top layer with the Clockworks Cuttlebug folder.  I also used my crimper on the bottom mat.  I did lots of inking and added some brads on the wheels.


I finished things off with a wonderful sentiment from My Craft Spot's Happy Fall set.

If you've got a "man" project you need to make, now's the perfect opportunity to get to work!  You can enter it in this week's My Craft Spot challenge and be eligible to win a fantastic prize while you're at it!

I love the colors you chose...that embossed bright red background is perfect for that fun and fabulous antique car. Love the little brads in the wheels. This is totally fabulous. Will have to keep an eye on for these "manly creations". They give me so much trouble. I'll be watching to see what everyone does.

What a fabulous masculine card! That antique car is just amazing. I love all the detail you gave that car, and I adore the fun die cut frame for the background. Fabulous texture from the embossing and crimping, too. :)
