For My Sister

My sister's birthday was on Valentine's Day.  In years past, I usually give her Valentine/Birthday cards, but this year I just wanted it to be strictly birthday.  And I wanted it to be nostalgic.  So I made this card for her.  I used the Nifty Fifties cartridge for all the cuts.  I really like how it turned out and I thought my sister would get a "kick" out of it, too!! 

How I made this card:
5 x 6.5 pre-scored card
Blue cardstock embossed with Divine Swirls
Car cut at 2-3/4"
"Get your kicks" cut at 3" -- cut "kicks" off
Heat embossed with clear powder
Word "on" cut from the word "teaspoon"-- From My Kitchen
Also heat embossed with clear powder
Route 66 sign cut at 1-1/4"
Fussy cut the road and embossed it with Distressed Stripes
Tires are embossed with Herringbone
Used glossy accents on the headlights

Thanks for visiting--Come back real soon.

  11. Love it, and that little heart gemstone gives the perfect nod to her birthday being on Valentine's Day!

  12. Hey Pat, I love this card!! The colors are great! When I was pregnant with my third baby, I had to have a C-section, and they scheduled it for Valentines day, but I refused, because if I had a girl, I didn't want her boyfriend/hubby someday to be able to get off easy by giving her a combo gift, instead of 2 gifts. I had a C-section on the 15th, and it ended up being a he, but at least the effort was there!! Has that ever happened to your sister?? You will have to let ,me know if my efforts were in vane or not!! Karen♥

  13. OMG! Pat so cute and love the Pink! I'm sure she loved it Pat and i sure do love the embossing! Have a fantastic day my friend:)
