Celebrate In Style
The Mod Squad Challenge this week is “Magazine Madness” where we are encouraged to use something on our card project from a magazine, gift catalog, or any other periodical we may have lying around. We can use it as a background, we can do a little fussy cutting, or we can get really creative and fussy cut a whole bunch of different shapes and make a collage or scene. We can do anything as long as something from a magazine is somewhere on our card. (Sadly, this site is no longer active.)
As I mentioned earlier, I don’t really have magazines here and get very few catalogs. This card was the first one I made for this challenge before I got the free SJ Magazine in the mail that I used for my other 2 cards for this challenge. The image for this card was actually on an ad pamphlet that came in the mail earlier in the week. I’m not sure if this qualifies for the challenge, but since the card is done, I figured I’d link it. (If it isn’t eligible, please let me know, and I’ll remove it.)
This Maserati photo screamed masculine birthday card when I saw it, so I whipped up this “stylish” card using Gina K Cherry Red and black card stock and a stamp from the Gina K Designs “Celebrate in Style” duo (retired?). The stamp was inked with Memento tuxedo black, and then the banner was sprayed with Tattered Angels Pearl Glimmer Mist to make it shiny like the car. Unfortunately, the shimmer doesn’t show up too well in the photo. I tried adding ribbon, different card stock panels and die cuts, etc., but everything just took away from the beautiful photo. Sometimes, less is better!
I’m not really a car person, but even I have to admit that this car is sweet!! (Even the advertisement was gorgeous!) Well, I’m off to run errands in my minivan!! 🙂
Thanks for checking out my card project!

Lisa, this is fine and looks great. The sentiment is perfect. Thank you so much for participating this week (again LOL) at the Mod Squad Challenge
You are really have fun and a very creative day today. Great card.
Ohhhh now that is CLEVER!
You certainly seem to be having fun with that idea of using a magazine photo. I love this one as well as the others you did!
Your use of the ad pamphlet certainly DOES qualify for this challenge. Any kind of thing like this will work. You have created a great masculine card with this….well done. Thanks for playing along so much this week. I have enjoyed seeing all your creations!!
Terrific – the idea of just using the front end of such a well known and loved auto is tremendous!
