US163 Stampin' Up! Countryside meets Argyle

I love it when I can create something masculine. To me, these are often the most difficult to design.

However, using this week's sketch at Unscripted Sketches, I was able to create a Father's Day card for my dad. He loves vintage cars, so I used a great stamp from our Countryside stamp set. This truck makes me think of my childhood in Georgia and Sunday drives where we would see fruit and veggie stands on the side of the road. Fresh peaches, anyone?

The spark-plug looking charm hanging on the left is actually a jewelry charm. I thought it looked interesting and, coincidentally, it fills this week's extra challenge to use a transparent item along with the sketch. Just for fun, I stamped a Father's Day sentiment onto Very Vanilla card stock and trimmed out the "FATHER" part, adhering it to the charm using Tombow adhesive. The charm itself has a split ring which I ran through a hole in the card stock along with a punched circle of Always Artichoke card stock. Not too shabby, eh?

Want more ideas? Visit the Unscripted Sketches website for the sketch and many additional samples. The artists there used Vellum in different ways - even a gorgeous flower. Enjoy!
