Card for Today

Hey there!

I didn't get a picture of the new updated tree card yet, but I really want to start posting more frequently, so I have something else to share today. I made this card for my brother's birthday last month. The card stock and images are Stampin' Up! and the background paper is Basic Grey, Scarlet's Letter. Actually, the card stock is SU!'s new Basic Gray color, so the card was made with Basic Gray and Basic Grey-lol!I can't remember who the big giant red brad was from, but I think it was Bazzill. The brad was threaded through the black button- I thought the brad itself looked a little too plain. I used a silver gel pen on the bumbers and hubcaps, so that is why there is a glare there- the flash reflected off the metallic silver, so it looks almost white in the pic.

The first pic is the outside of the card, and the colors are more accurate:

The second pic shows the card open, but it was taken without a flash, and the colors are all yellowy and icky looking:

The second picture shows how the card opens. The left side closes first, and the right side closes on top of it. (the truck is on the outside of the open side of Happy Birthday.

I did the same card design on a card I did for my love, elsie class at BSS:

and the inside:

Sorry again for blurry pics. We will probably get a new camera on Black Friday as an early Christmas gift. In the meantime I will try to learn more about the one we are borrowing, so you don't have to suffer through another month of blurry photos.

I just want to add that I did not come up with this card lay-out myself. I have seen it around. I can't cite anyone specifically, since it is just something I had seen a few times here and there and remembered because I thought it was cool.

Enjoy your week-end!
