Howdy Doo!  Today on the Scrap The Boys Card Challenge the challenge was to use Black & White and one more color, I chose turquoise, plus this month’s sketch, which can be found Here, so head on over and link up your creation!

I have always LOVED black and turquoise together, I had this vision of a vintage car, and since turquoise is a very vintage car color, I thought it would work well for this project.  The card is for my dad’s birthday and I know he will love the Route 66 reference as well as the cars.

STB Route 66 Card

The stamp set is Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Road Trip, I stamped the vintage car three times in Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide ink onto turquoise cardstock.  I die cut a large circle with the turquoise cardstock and embossed it with Tim Holtz Riveted Metal embossing folder.  I die cut a slightly smaller black circle and embossed that one with the Tim Holtz Diamond Plate embossing folder.  I layered them onto the black card base, added the strip with the cars on top.  I stamped the Route 66 road sign and the sentiment “The Journey Is The Destination” in black onto white cardstock, heat embossed them and cut them out.  I popped both of them up using foam tape.  For the final touch on the outside I added Nuvo white enamel drops to a few spots.

The inside of the card was stamped using a combo of Simon Says Stamp and Close To My Heart stamps, I used the Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide ink on white cardstock and layered it onto a mat of turquoise.
