SSS192 - You're a Classic


It's time for another Sweet Stop Sketch.

I just received the SNSS stamp set, Timeless Classic, in the mail and had to make a masculine card with it.

I love the fun vintage truck image. I also love chevrons and found this very cool and funky wavy chevron cut file in the Silhouette store. So it was perfect for the wavy border in the sketch. Since ribbon, buttons and other frills were out for a masculine card, I opted for lots of dry embossing for texture, ink distressing for dirty and old, and several of the layers are adhered with foam tape for dimension.

Now it is your turn to try out the sketch this week. Get the details on the Sweet Stop Sketch blog. Also, make sure you stop by SplitCoastStampers in the Sweet N Sassy Stamps Member Forum to join some challenges for the new Release. Have a great weekend!
