The Doc's Card.

It was The Doc's Birthday yesterday
and this is the card I made for him.
He has several loves in his life and it would be fairly safe to say
that his car is one of them!
So I went off in search of a digi that would be suitable to use .
It took me 2 days trawling the web but I eventually found
this Audi digi  (a perfect replica of his car).
Centre stepper card made from Kraft card
(Without the craft knife slipping this time!!)
Digi  designed by 'Eva Cano' Craftsuprint.
Coloured using Promarkers and silver gel pen.
Dovercraft textured cardstock used  for the layering.
Britannia word dies for the sentiments.
I used wooden embellishments from Crafty Embellies
coloured with a silver pen to make the hub wheels.

I added the number plate afterwards along with the wording inside.
Entering into the following challenges:
Crafting For All Seasons # Lots of layers.
Sweet Pea Stampers # Kraft on your projects.
A Creative Romance #24 One for the boys.
We Do Doobadoo #5 Lots of layers
All sorts #258 Fancy folds
One Stitch At A Time #212 Use a digi.
Electric Ellapu # Birthday.
Pixie's Crafty Workshop #124 Use up your snippets. (word dies  pre cut in blue and  re-painted)
Simon Says Stamps. #Use M. (M for male card).
Lexi's Creations #115 for the man/boy in your life.
Artistic Inspirations # 91 No Design paper and anything goes.

Tell hubby happy birthday and I can guess he loved his card. That was so nice of you to spend all that time finding an image for him. That makes it so special. Glad you're becoming so proficient with the knife! Great card.

Male cards are always a bit tricky for me, but you really nailed it with this one! I love how you took the time to surf the net until you found just the right card image. I think it makes the card so meaningful when you take the time to personalize it like that. I bet he'll love it. I know I do! Thanks for sharing your talents and inspiration with us for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!
