Tire Treads with Cable Knit

Hey friends! I have one of the four projects I made for the Stampin' Up! blog post that went live on May 18th. I thought I would go a little more in depth here than I could on that post. 😁

This card uses the Cable Knit embossing folder to create tire tracks diagonally across part of the card. Crumb Cake, Basic Black, and Vellum card stocks make this a rather masculine looking card. I was thrilled with how crisp the motorcycle image stamped in Archival Black ink on the oval Stitched Shapes framelit die cut. The motorcycle image just fits in the largest oval.
The distressed stamp helped add some interest to the Crumb Cake panel stamped in Crumb Cake with the "route 66" image.
I almost have a compulsion when it comes to stitching on my cards, and this card was no exception! I think this card needed it though. It really ties everything together. However, I think this card would look fine without the stitching, if that is not how you roll, lol.

I made a video of the making of this card. I hope you enjoy it! 

Inside the card, I stamped the greeting in Archival Black ink, and the tire tread in Crumb Cake ink.  And I added a little stamped-off Crumb Cake distressed image.

One more shot! Hopefully it really highlights the texture from the embossing folder. Love that thing.
