for this card i started with a standard sized 5 1/2 by 4 1/4 white cardbase, navy cardstock and printed paper from cosmo cricket's joy ride collection.

i cut the designer papers to fit the cardstock. as usual for me i didn't measure i just kept cutting the navy cardstock till i had the sections of the card blocked off the size that i wanted them. then i cut the printed paper to fit inside the navy cardstock. (i hope that explanation makes since-sorry if it doesn't)

i used fiskars scalloped sentiment punch to punch a white scallop, and adhered it to the yellow print paper with tombo mono glue.

once i had my panels set i decided i wanted my main image to be a little car. so i sketched a car on the navy cardstock. i used tombow mono removable adhesive to glue the car to the printed paper. i used my fiskars cutting blade to cut out the windows. i used mini glue dots to adhere the buttons for the tires, and outlined the car with faux stitching with a white gel pen. i used tiny strips of black cardstock to make door handles, and attached the car to the card with martha stewart foam adhesive.

i cut the little puff of smoke free hand from white cardstock, and attached with pop dots, because they're not as raised as the martha stewart dimensional adhesive.

then i adhered brads to the card. i marked where they needed to be placed with a pencil, then used my crop a dile to punch the hole.

the card look kind of quirky and fun, and i didn't quite know what sentiment would work best for it. but i found it on a hero arts stamp set, simple quirky and fun: yippee!!!

i cut the star with my cricket, then stamped little starbursts with colorbox orange chalk ink. then stamped the sentiment with black ink.

i used my xyron sticker maker to attach the white star to the navy shadow star. then attached to the card with pop dots.

i hope everyone is enjoying their weekend.
