Happy Father's Day Card

The current challenge at the Scrappy Frogs Challenge Blog is to make a project using the color Red. I decided to make a Father's Day Card. I started with a 8" X 9" cream card stock base that I scored and folded at 4" to create card that is 4" X 9". I added a brown mat cut at 3 3/4" X 8 3/4" . My patterned paper is from a DCWV stack and is cut at 3 1/2" X 8 1/2". I then cut a mat 2" X 8 1/2" and a cream mat cut at 1 3/4" X 8 1/2" I ran the cream piece through my cuttlebug and embossed it with the Tim Holtz texture fades embossing folder Steampunk. I adhered this cream mat to the brown mat and then to my card front just slightly lower then center. I cut my car from the Nifty Fifties Cricut cartridge. I believe I cut the car at 2" cutting all the layers. I added some black nail heads to the center of the wheels and applied some Glossy Accents to the windshield of the card. I pop dotted the car to the front of my card and stamped my Happy Father's Day sentiment. I hope you join in the challenge over at the Scrappy Frogs Challenge Blog.
