Inspired by a T-Shirt!


Hi everyone, I was asked to make a birthday card for a young man who loves landcruiser vehicles.
Needless to say, I was pretty stumped and while searching the internet for male birthday ideas I saw a t-shirt with this slogan on it.
Glad Mum was happy with it lol!

I diecut all the coloured letters then layered everything onto a black layer for dimension and a touch of shadow. Very messy and gluey. A T ruler helped lining everything up.

I'm linking up to these challenges:

Country View Challenge, card for a man

The Diecut Divas, anything goes

Can You Handle the Pressure, playing with the anything goes option

The small alphabet/number die by Charlie & Paulchen and the Taylored Expressions embossing folder had their first use for this card, so I'm also popping in to Darnell's NBUS Challenge

Dies: Charlie & Paulchen mini alphabet; Memory Box awesome jotted script and Parker numbers for the 18;
Other: Taylored Expressions graphic impressions birthday embossing folder.

Thanks for visiting, 
Cathy x

What a perfect card, Cathy, especially for a guy! I wish I had seen it before the twinks turned 18, but I'm bookmarking it for their 21st. (Now to remember I bookmarked it for that long. Hahaha!) Thank you for inspiring everyone at NBUS! Hugs, Darnell

I love it. Couldn't be more perfect for a young guy. I love the idea of using a T shirt for inspiration. The embossed background was just right.

So glad you joined us at Die Cut Divas for our “Anything Goes” challenge

What a fun card for a male. I love Charlie & Paulchen and wish I could find a US company that carries them. I like those bright colors you used that really draws the eye in.
