Vintage Cars

     I put this card together yesterday for a friend from our dinner group that is celebrating a birthday. 
     I started with one of Lili of the Valley's trio stamp sets. The car on the front flap is part of an older Lili of the Valley stamp called "Toot Toot". I colored the front of the card from that one and placed it on a vintage map mat.

Card and Envelope

     Previously, I have always made cube-shaped box cards and I have cut them on the trimmer and scored them myself. I purchased this box card die from Stamps of Life. I believe it is fairly new. I particularly liked working with it, because it makes larger mats on the front flap and back of card. There is also more room to spread out the goodies that are going in the box. Usually the side flaps (which are now smaller) are secondary anyway.

     Clocks and gears are always good filler for masculine cards so I added a few of those. I also used these on the side flaps.

Back of Card
     I always decorate the back of my box cards with scraps that are left on the table.

     I die cut Tim Holtz's "Jalopy" for the envelope. The stamp giving it motion is a flourish from a floral stamp set.
