Weekly challenge #23 Guy Stuff Challenge- Cruisin Truck

This is my card for the challenge which was to incorporate at least three of the following types of materials on your project. (Hardware items, stars, raw cardboard or chipboard, twine, string, paint, buttons, staples, or distressed edges)

To make this card I used Nifty Fifties for the truck and the phrase Cruisin is from Boys Will be Boys.  First I embossed Silver Duct Tape that comes in a 8 1/2 x 11 sheet at Michaels with a cuttlebug  folder to make the background.  Then I cut out the truck and  title pieces.  I used tiny bolts for  the wheels, twine, and a button and washer for the bow.  I am leaving the inside blank for now.  I thought later I could add Cruisin...." to wish you a Happy Birthday"  or "by  to say thank you" or  "by to say get well."  Anyway you get the idea- so for now the inside will be blank.  Love the way the duct tape looks embossed.
