Darkroom Door - Classic Birthday

Hello friends, I have a masculine card to share with you today - I am working hard to build up my supply of masculine cards - we never seem to create enough of them so I am doing what I can to rectify that, using the Darkroom Door Vintage Automobiles stamp set - I love these old trucks and the fabulous sentiments that come with it. 

I have stamped the truck image using Imagine Memento Ink n Rhubarb Stalk onto white card stock.  This strip of card stock has been sponged around the edges using Memento Ink in Rich Cocoa and a Sponge Dauber,  The Texture Stamp - Plaid has been lightly stamped onto the centre of a recycled book page and popped up onto a slightly larger, white precut card base.

Torn corrugated card has been adhere across the middle of the card front and the stamped image has been popped up across the lower portion - on an angle - using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam Squares  

The stamped and inked strip has been added to an embossed layer using Spellbinders Em-bossing Fold'ers Grid 4.25 x 5.5 in Single Sided and popped up onto a pre-cut card base using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam Squares.  A strip of recycled corrugated cardboard has been adhered along the image strip and sponged using brown ink,  The computer sentiment has been adhere
