The inspiration for this card came from the striped Cosmo Cricket paper which was part of a 6x6 Mini Deck that I won on Debbie Olsen's blog a few weeks ago. Just so happens that two of the most recent Stampin' Up in colors were a perfect match so I created the truck and car border. (The blue vehicles were stamped with my favorite blue from the previous year's in-colors. ) While I had my inks out, I used Technique Tuesday stamps to create the random circle patterned paper you see behind the diecut.
To create the scalloped edge along the bottom of the card I first punched the border from a strip of paper. Next, I cut 3/4" off the base of the card. I put adhesive on the bottom of the inside front panel. After lining the punched border up with the bottom of the back panel, I closed the card, pressed along the edge where the adhesive was and voila!
You can't see it here but I also stamped a row of cars and trucks on the inside of the card as well.
Happy birthday, Thomas!
