Hello peeps and a happy Saturday to you! More importantly Happy World Card Making Day! I managed to get a little crafty time in last night and get a card finished for today! I had started this card a while ago, the car has been on my desk for about a week! I chatted with my friend Sue last night and it all came together!
I used the Spellbinders Special Delivery Dies to cut out my car. It’s cut from a piece of Blue 110lb and again from a piece of Neenah Solar White 110lb. I did a little ink blending on the windows and then pieced all of the white into the blue car. The bumpers, door handle and hubcaps are cut from Silver Card Stock and the lights also from White. I color in the lights with Copics, adhered them to the card and added some Nuvo Crystal Glaze to them. The wheels are cut from Black 110lb, I added then to the car and then the hub caps. My trees are cut from 2 colors of Green 110lb Card Stock and White Glimmer Paper using the Spellbinders Bottle Brush Trees Dies. For my background I used a Blending Brush to add Broken China Distress Oxide Ink to a piece of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. It’s adhered to a Slimline Card Base. The snowy hill and road are cut from Black 110lb and White 110lb using Trinity Stamps Slimline Series: Scenic Borders. I adhered them to each other with Bearly Arts Glue and then to the card With Foam Tape. The trees are glued in place and the car added with more Foam Tape. The other small tree is added to the top of the car and then the ribbon. I was digging through my stash and found a really old Pinkfresh Stamp Set called Christmas Wishes and stamped the greeting from the set in Versafine Clair Nocturne Ink with my Misti.
I do really like the little car die and putting it all together was fun! I reminded me a little of making models back when I was little! I hope that you enjoyed my Christmas card for World Card Making Day! Here’s to hoping that you get to be crafty today too! Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend!
