Father's Day Duo @ visible Image

Hi y'all :D
I seem to have got into the habit of doing 2 cards!!! 
It's a bit like seeing a nice top, fits great but can't decide what colour to get, so get 2! 

Well it's 'Soozie Tooseday' again here at Visible Image, Kids are home so I don't get as much time to craft :( but :) that the 'little people' are home from boarding school!

I've gone for a Fathers day theme, seeing as though it's creeping up on us! 
Only a couple more days left for you to enter our May Challenge Brighten Your Day as it's almost June which also means its nearly my Birthday YEY!
I'm hoping (but ssshhhh) that Cheremane's made me a card that I cheekily asked for haha but if you don't ask then you don't get do you? But it's such a beautiful card I sooo wanted it :D
If you need some inspiration pop by ourFacebook group.

Right lets get on with why we're here shall I!
I thought of a lovely colour combo and I really like it, it's wild honey and aged mahogany DI's  

For this card I used the handsome classic car (attached with foam pads) stamped 2 and cut out, all the stamps in the Father's Day Set and for my backgrounds the Grunge check and Crackled background. I masked a lot and had great fun getting inky and embossed all the words in wow primary burgundy red, mounted onto a black 6 x 6 card and to finish used my crop-a-dile and some brass eyelets. 
For the message inside I used However you spend it

For my second card I used the same colours, for the backgrounds the Harlequincrackled and Tyre marks 
again I masked quite a lot, I stamped and coloured the motorbike twice and cut out (again attached at the end with foam pads), for the tag I added a silver motorbike from my treasure chest stash and mixed stamps from the More than Words.....these are a MUST all interchangeable and stamp and emboss beautifully.
Added some fibres and eyelets, mounted again onto a 6 x 6 black card.
For the verse inside I used Anyone can be a Father & Happy Father's Day from the Father's day set.

I had fun making these and I like the fact you don't need backing papers, you can make your own and there are sooooo many backgrounds HERE to choose from :D

Thanks for stopping by folks
Much Love
