This is one of my favourite stamps because I think it is so versatile. It can be used for young boys with their toy cars through to teenagers learning to drive and onto the older generation thinking back to their youth. I have chosen it for my nephew's 17th birthday card as he can now apply for a driving licence and learn to drive.
I have used a map of the area where he lives as the backing paper for the card and matted and layered it onto dark green mirri card and a pale green card. The image called 'toot toot!' from Lili of the Valley was coloured using Promarkers and a silver gel pen. I then cut it out using a Spellbinders curved rectangle die, applied distress ink to the edges and matted it onto dark green mirri card. I attached card candi to the corners of this and wrote '17' in gold on each of the candi. Finally I added a birthday wishes sentiment.
