Bold Boy Birthday!

I made this card today for a birthday party we were going to. I find it hard to do boy cards but this one came together very quickly. I was going for a fairly clean minimal look and I think it works but I am not really use to doing things like this. If I try it again I may do some sort of background stamp on the base card but then again that may not look right.I have used the By Land stamp set which sadly is retiring this month and the In the Stars stamp set that is in the Summer Mini (Love this set so versitile).

I have embossed the car image on basic grey card stock with versamark and black EP and embossed the happy birthday in white EP on Basic Black cardstock. The star has been stamped using Real Red (the colour is much brighter in real life) and then I punched it out using the large star punch. I have used dimensionals to pop up the car image and the star.

Don't forget to keeping checking the list of stuff that has sold out in my previous post because I will continue to update it as things sell out.
