A Car Card

This card is the “innie” portion of the car card I posted on Monday using the “outie” portion of the Dazzles from Paper Wishes.
It looks entirely different doesn’t it! To use the inner portion of the sticker, you have to first cut around it leaving an edge; then you use a special plastic sheet to put over top, press down and peel it up, and then reposition it on paper – that’s the light brown. After doing this I got to thinking that this special plastic that I bought is nothing more than contact paper! Mmmmhhh contact paper is much cheaper then these small packages but I think I’ll try it on one of the “I don’t care if I ruin it” stickers first. Stay tuned for the results!

So I positioned the transferred “innie” onto the light brown paper but there was no way the border would stick so I ended up throwing it away and going around the edge with a black pen- it looks dark brown in the photo but it’s black. Now all the components were there except for the grill so I used some gold peel-and-stick small wavy lines to add in the grill. I dug into the ‘never-going-down” stash again and pulled out some other brown paper and cardstock and the piece of yellow with lines on it. The card was covered with the brown strip paper. The other brown paper was run through the Cuttlebug using one of their embossing folders and then I gently rubbed some brown ink over the embossed parts to hi-lite them a bit. For men’s cards I do like to grunge them up a bit so I tore the edge and inked it with brown ink and layered it on top of a torn black piece of cardstock. The yellow piece was also torn and inked and then I added a gold strip across the top. The car was then attached on an angle with dimensional glue strips to give it some dimension.

The week’s almost over. This weekend is our Canadian Thanksgiving weekend. Give thanks for you blessings whether you are Canadian or not!
