Recently I made four cards for two friends who helped me, and here they are!
What’s that? You only see two cards? Well, I only intended to make two but I had a few technical errors as I made the red card. The first one was ruined when I was using the gold puffy paint to color the head lights and tail lights. I hadn’t used it in a long time and I squeezed the bottle too hard and WOOSH – it shot out all over me, my carpet, my white board, desk and the card. I cleaned things up and made the card again, but the paper jammed in my Cricut machine and it was ruined. The third time WAS the charm!
After cutting the cards with my Nifty Fifties Cricut cartridge, I used my Fiskars argyle punch to make the contrasting band at the bottom of the cards and stamped “Thank You” several times in different colors (ink and sentiment purchased from Close to My Heart) Then I attached the background with double-sided foam tape around the edges so it made a 3-D look. Using markers, I made the plain car come to life, and voila – the cards were finished! 🙂
