This card is for a three year old boy, and what boy does not love vehicles, particularly large vehicles!?
I started with some silver tape - unfortunately a cheap variety, and it tore easily and did not peel off the roll that well, but I persisted and covered the base layer, then embossed it with a cuttlebug folder.
I had to do 'double run' as the folder did not go right down the piece - then I discovered that I had in effect de-bossed the panel - oops :-)
I stamped the images from Flonzcraft in cocoa ink, fussy cut them, and then made a sentiment banner, embossing the wording, and then mounted it over the corrugated card with brads for more texture.
