Good Monday morning. I have a masculine vintage car die cut card to share with you today with a pretty framed outdoor tree scene in the background. To create my project I used the Rubbernecker 567-01 Woody Stamp, 567-01D Woody Die, 924 Fall Foliage, 3011 Kittie Kits Outdoor Master and 5131D Square Combo #1 OPC Die.
Create the Tree
I secured the tree trunk and branch stamp and white cardstock in my MISTI. I inked the stamp with brown ink, lightly blotted the upper branch portion with a wet baby wipe and then stamped it. I wanted the upper branches to be less visible than the main trunk image. I secured the upper tree leaf stamp of the tree in my MISTI and applied a light shade of green to the whole image and stamped it. I applied different darker shades of green ink on sections of the stamp multiple times and stamped until I had created a variegated tree top. I used the tiny multi dots stamp from the Outdoor Master set to create texture by stamping a few different shades of green and blue to to the tree top. I used a water brush and brown reinkers to fill in the tree trunk.
Create the Fence and Ground
I stamped sections of the fence from the Outdoor Master on both sides of the tree using brown ink. Unfortunately, I didn’t get them stamped evenly but I wasn’t going to stop after working so hard on the tree. LOL! I filled in the fence sections using a water brush and brown reinkers. I stamped the ground section using green ink but used a water brush and green reinkers to create a grass area that covered the whole bottom portion of the scene. I used the tiny multi dots stamp with green, blue and orange ink to add texture and the appearance of a flower border to the grass area.
Vintage Car Die Cut
I stamped the Woody two time using black versafine ink on blue cardstock and cut it out. I cut the car out using the die and then trimmed around it to remove the edges and cut the wheel sections off. I cut the windows out of one using a craft knife. I colored the wood sections of the car with a brown marker. I colored the wheels of the second car using a gray marker and then attached the front car over the background car using mounting tape. If I had it to do over again I would have stamped the car on watercolor paper and colored it with reinkers. Next time!!!
Framing the Scene
I cut the frame and attached the two sections together using double stick tape. I attached mounting tape to the back of the frame and attached it over the scene. Next, I attached the scene to the blue layer with mounting tape and and then attached the blue layer to the card base with another layer of mounting tape. I think the popped layers adds more interest to the card than it would with all the layers flat. I finished by attaching the Woody to the frame using piece of mounting tape.
I really love the Fall Tree set and refused to allow myself to think it could only be used for fall. Next time I play with it I plan to create s spring or summer card with a green background and some colorful flowers mixed in among the branches. I think the Woody vintage car die cut makes a perfect focal point for a masculine card. Thanks for coming by and I hope you have a great day.
