CASology 171 - Vehicle


This week's CASology Cue Card is Vehicle.


We are always in need of thank you notes in this house and I like to have ones that my son is happy to use. So I made this one with him in mind. I used a Denami tank (I surgically removed the chick to make it more 'masculine') and a punny Hambo sentiment.

To create a little more interest on this one-layer card, I stamped the tanks and masked and sponged a red strip on the inside of the card. I then cut the cardfront shorter so that the tanks and red stripe would show from the outside. This has the added benefit of having less room for writing, and easing the teen-age pressure (although, to be honest, my son writes very nice thank you notes!)

Here's how it looks closed up.


I'm also linking up to OLS, where our theme for November is A Multitude of Gratitude.

Now it's your turn - get truckin' and show us how your vehicles roll!

Fantastic card, and perfect for a boy to use. I love how you shortened the front and that red stripe adds just the right amount of color.

Love your card! I can honestly say I've never seen a "tank" stamp, but I love it with that punny sentiment!

Brilliant! And one layer, too. Altogether wow!

Geri said...

Oh...you are so 'punny' dear friend! Those tanks really are cute. Love how you lined them up horizontally and how effectively the sponged red stripe works to keep the sentiment the center of attention.

"Tanks" for sharing it with us :)
