Jalopy Route 66 Father's Day Card

Created this card using Tim Holtz items and metal. Found it easiest to distress a piece of TH core'dinations cardstock first by sanding it before cutting with die so I sanded the TH brown core'dinations cardstock and cut with Mini Old Jalopy. Used aluminum non galvanized roof flashing embossed with the Route 66 from TH embossing folder. Used Stampin' Up punches for sentiment tag with tag layer again using metal. Added a recycled button & twine.

Supplies List

button: recycled old button
ink: MementoRich Cocoa
metal: aluminum nongalvanized roof flashing
paper - cardstock - Kraft
recycle: old button
Stampin' Up: punches: Modern Label, Word Window, stamp - Teeny Tiny Wishes
Tim Holtz: core'dinations cardstock - walnut stain, die - Mini Old Jalopy, 
   Distress Inks - walnut stain, black soot, embossing - Travel Signs embossing folder,
twine: Vintage black/brown
