Hey everyone! Happy Saturday!
Today I’m bringing you a birthday card I made for a friend. He likes his cars and owns a fancy one so I used that as my inspiration:
I just *love* those photos you get of just the silhouette of a car being lit! They always look so impressive, and I think I did that look justice here!
I started with a True Black card base and sketched out the rough shape of the car. I then drew it on with a Versamarker and heat embossed with WOW! Clear Semi Dull embossing powder. Next I took some WPlus9 White Pigment ink and applied it with a cotton bud (QTip) and buffed it into the cardstock to create that halo effect!
I added the sentiment from Stylish Sentiments: Birthday using Versamark ink then heat embossed with WOW! Opaque Seafoam White embossing powder. I was careful to split the word ‘Birthday’ to stamp a different font of ‘R’ using a different sentiment, then coloured part of that letter with a R29 Copic marker to mimic the car’s badge – love details like this!!
I wanted a sleek and simple look, just like the photos I chose to emulate, so that was all this card needed!
ETA: I’m linking this up to the CAS-ual Fridays CFC99 Challenge to create a CAS birthday card! You should play along too, there’s only a few days left!
Well, I have a ton to do this weekend, as usual, so I’d better get back to it! I would love to know what you think of this card though before you head on your way! Thanks so much for stopping by!!

Thanks so much for joining us at CAS-ual Fridays this week!
I would love to get a card like this!!! Seriously love the car silhouette! Everything about this card; the way you drew it, the glow, the cool logo style sentiment…is just spectacular!
You are such a clever crafter T! Amazing 🙂 BTW, your card below….awesome job!! x
This is so fun! Reminds me of Knight Rider. I love the red R!
You drew your own car silhouette … how awesome is that?!? And the glow from behind it is truly spectacular! I haven't seen anything like that before. You know I'm gonna love your R … what a great idea as-is, but that it also emulates the car logo takes it to an entirely different level!!
I have not seen anything like that. That is SO COOL.
That's one COOL card!! 🙂 Lovin' it!!
