Tired...

I made this tire card for one of my nephews this week. It's ultra simple to make. All you need is the following Spellbinders' Nestabilities dies: Scallop Circle, Inverted Scallop Circle, various Standard Circles. For the center, I used my tried and true go to....JustRite. For this center I stamped the star sentiment from the set Just a Note 1 5/8" Borders and Centers with Tuxedo Black (Memento).

To get the "tire treads" you first use a Scalloped Circle die (Spellbinders). You then line up a slightly smaller Circle die (Spellbinders) over the scallops. Just enough so it won't completely cut off the scallop. I then attached the tire shape to a previously cut circle shaped card.

See...easy!!
Hope you're having a wonderful week!
Happy Stamping!!




Stamps:
Just a Note (JustRite)
Paper: Black (Prismatics), Neenah, Brushed Silver (SU!)
Ink: Tuxedo Black (Memento)
Accessories: Scalloped Circle, Inverted Scalloped Circle, Circle Nestabilities (Spellbinders), Copics, Dimensional Tape
