wrap it up card

hi all
This weekend is my grandads birthday..he is 80+ & we were all going to go out for dinner to celebrate...but as luck would have it we are all getting we wont be able to go see him til next weekend when i hope we are all better as i dont want him to catch the horrible flu we have!

I wanted to make him a card from the new cartridge i got a few weeks ago called 'wrap it up'. At first i thought the gravestone card would be funny but i could just imagine how my family would take it...they can seem quite serious at times...even though im sure my grandad would of had a laugh.....but what is with the saying on there "better off dead" what kind of occasion calls for that saying?? lol

so anyway after cutting out the tombstone & having a think i decided to go with the old classic car card...after all he is one of a kind!

I cut the car & the card at 4.5inches...its quite a largish card...but grandads sight isnt what it used to bigger is better!
I then twisted some twine & stuck it down & then tied 2 knots ....stamped a Happy birthday & added kaiser pewter pearls to it...i used foam tape to raise the car up from the base of the card also!

So now that i have an extra week...i can work on his birthday present when i feel better!

have a scrappy weekend!
