Car with a Clear Chevron Circle


I got a text off my daughter this evening - she wanted a card with a car on it for her friend's dad who's a driving instructor, and she wants it by tomorrow!

To give me some ideas I browsed some current challenges and this is what I came up with . I created the circle base card on the Silhouette , cut out a circle of acetate and embossed it with a chevron embossing folder. The car stamp is by Printworks and I coloured it with markers, paper-pieced it and cut it out. The sentiment is by Hero Arts.

I'd like to enter:

Super cute car! I love that retro pattern paper! That is really great you could think of this idea given such little time to make the card! I rarely work well under that kind of pressure. TFS!

That is one super-duper card! I like the idea and the execution is great. The car is beautifully coloured and the window effect is stunning. I've never thought of embossing acetate before: it looks great. Thanks for joining us at Retro Rubber for our Anything Goes Challenge.

What a great quick make! Don't you love it when a relative says "you can make this tonight, right?" Been there done that! Very fun car card executed with a masculine twist. Thanks for joining us at Retro Rubber!
