My brother's birthday was in March so I made him a card of some of his favorite things, diamond plate chrome and tire tracks. The "diamond plate" is a scrap of scrapbook paper - I used it as my base, layering a piece of rippled carstock covered by...
...another piece of cardstock that I made tire tracks on. Super easy! Just use a toy car, roll the back tires over an ink pad and vroom vroom your way to a custom pattern. He loved it. :)
Several couples I know recently announced engagements with weddings set for this summer. I've been dying to make a cute layered cake using this tiny pom trim I bought from Christopher Pines so this is perfect! This one is a work in progress, just so you know. :)
The layers: I cut the oval out of the white card and layered the pink behind it, window style. For the cake layers I first embossed strips of paper using the "vintage rose" distress powder. The cake stand and topper are rub-ons by Heidi Grace Designs (found in scrapbooking locales all over the place). Around my oval I put a piece of my ever-present dictionary page - I'm not sure I'll ever use them all up!
