A RaceCar Birthday

Hello Blogger Friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with the Charmed life Blog this Saturday in June.
I mentioned the other day that we were having issues with our 2 year old refrigerator. Well, since Thursday the repairman has been out 3x. Last night at 7:00 pm was his last visit. About 2 hr after he left the same problem occurred.
The refrigerator is not cooling and an error code shows up in the display. Of course, they don't work on the weekends. I can't go shopping because I am afraid stuff will go bad. We already threw out food in the refrigerator. Just don't want to take a chance. Oh well, I guess I will be seeing him again on Monday.
Let's move onto my card before I get to rambling and complaining about this refrigerator. This is a card I made for my weekly DT post on the CottageCutz Blog.
 am featuring the new Racecars & Flags + the Build-A-Sign dies.  Masculine cards are made so easy using these new dies. I needed a birthday card for a nephew who is a big Nascar racing fan. Let's get started with some details on how I created my project.

Step 1: Since I knew what dies I was using this week, I had to decide on my card colors first. I think that stripes always have a nice masculine vibe and red & blue stripes for sure. I found this striped patterned paper in my stash - so red & blue were my colors of choice.
White card base: 5" square
Blue Layer: 4 7/8" square
Patterned Paper: 4 3/4" square
White Image Panel: 3 1/2" square
 Step 2: Cut the images from red, blue and white cardstocks.
My sign choice was based on the word I was going to stamp on it. Needed something large enough to fit nephew.
 Secured them to the white square panel with double sided tape and Ranger multi matte medium. I added the striped gray paper to resemble a road or racetrack.
 Stamped my happy birthday sentiment with denim ink on an angle with the help of my MISTI. The nephew word is also stamped with denim ink.
 Step 3: Started card assembly. The image panel is secured with mounting tape and the flags with double sided tape.
Finished my card by attaching to the white card base. I hope I have given you another idea for a way to use the new masculine dies. Here is a link to another card I made using these same dies for Father's Day.
Well, that's it for me for this post. So, until next time...…...God bless.
