Halloween was also my brother’s birthday (yes – the witches left him behind ) and so I needed a card for him of course.
It was the perfect excuse to ink up one of my new Need for Speed stamps. The set also includes a speedboat, plane and a dune buggy. I also got to break out the new Well Worn DSP. This combo is just ideal for masculine cards.

Brick style DSP was matted onto a Cajun Craze card blank. After stamping the car in Black Stazon onto Very Vanilla card, it was coloured with the More Mustard marker and then matted onto Cajun Craze card before adhering direct to the card front. The birthday sentiment was stamped in Cajun Craze ink onto Very Vanilla card and punched out with the Decorative Label. Another Decorative Label was punched from Cajun Craze card, cut into four and matted behind the sentiment. Brads were added to the sentiment before popping it up on dimensionals on the card front. His name (good job it’s short ) was die cut from River Rock and Cajun Craze card, then matted and popped up on slivers of dimensionals.
Pretty smart I think. Not that I’ve had a comment on it from him – no change there then .
