Need for Speed for Nephew!





I usually think that cards for men are a challenge, but I've decided that cards for teenage nephews are much harder.  Mojo went when I started to make this card!  It's also hard when you know that teenage boys aren't really interested in the card and your time spent in making it, but more in the contents it may contain or be attached to.....But this is what I settled on for my nephew Tom who loves speed, but usually in the form of skiing as he's a very talented skier, but sadly I don't have a skier stamp.  The Need for Speed stamp set from Stampin' Up! worked out well in the end and I thought the limited colour palette would also suffice.  I used the chevron embossing folder for some texture and I love the arrow paper clip from the Hung Up cute clips range in the spring/summer catalogue.  The car is heat embossed and my sentiment is from a retired US stamp set.

I hope he liked it!
