Transport was Kathy's choice of theme.

Kathy's card

This card is an A5 Landscape, Blue Pearlescant, l embossed double lines to give a faux frame effect. The matt was made by sticking small pieces of tape in a patchy effect all over the piece of card, l then tinted it with Black Soot distressed ink, and also the edges- made tyre tracks in different angles- matted it onto silver mirror card. Finished off by placing the decoupage half and half over this matt. An ideal card for a enthusiast.

My card is and A5 which is firstly layered with a stripe paper I found in my stash. I used black card for my first matt, and white card for my second. After stamping my image I used a circle die around my image to give the impression the car is coming out of the circle. I inked the edges of the 2nd layer and the circle to give more definition. I coloured my image and finished with a sentiment and card candi.

I always have difficulty doing men's cards.  This card is a DL card with some simple matting and layering of black card followed by some happy birthday backing paper from my crafty stash.
I then stamped the car is black versafine ink and embossed it with black embossing powder.  The car is a stamp from Tanda Stamps called Transport Set 1.  I die cut the car using spellbinders labels 23 and whilst it was still in the die I inked around he edges with black soot distress ink.  I then matted that onto some more black card.
The sentiment was stamped the same as the card, die cut with spellbinders ovals and matted onto some black card.  I have to apologise here because I cannot remember where the sentiment stamp was from
Quite a simple card but hopefully effective.  Thanks for looking at our blog and take care.
Chris' card

Transport is one of my favourite themes and I collect transport stamps. This card was made using a mixture of a new pictorial text stamp from IndigoBlu and an old stamp I've had many years (from PI I think). I've mixed them with a mono background which is another favourite and great for guys.


  1. Fabulous selection of cards - really useful for male birthdays etc,

  2. Super car cards, love the monochromatic ones, great cards for the boys.
