A Masculine Birthday card

Over at  My Creative Time's Throwback Thursday challenge, Emma is asking that you use Wild card or Just because cards with embossing this week. Cooking with Cricut also has an Anything Goes Challenge this week.

I needed a guy type birthday card so pulled out the Just Because Cards cartridge for my favorite little truck. 


I printed the background paper behind the truck with my Imagine and then embossed it for a more crumpled look. 

Here's how I did it....
This is a big card, 5x7
Paper is from my scrap stash
Truck/layers cut at 4" from Just Because Cards
Mat/paper printed and cut at 2.75" from Imagine More Cards and then embossed with Distressed stripes cuttlebug folder
EK border punch.
Sentiment on Front is My Creative Time Polka Dot Surprise stamp set
Sentiment inside is MPS Everyday Sentiments
Ribbon, buttons and doodles all from my stash
