A friend's son recently got his driver's license so I made a card to congratulate him. I went with this Echo Park cut file because his mom drives a red VW bug. Couldn't be more perfect, right?
I started with the basic cut file, created an offset, then mirrored the image above the original to create the white card base. After cutting the car parts, I adhered them to the card base, using foam circles to give the hood dimension.
I used enamel dots for the headlights, embellished the hood with a wood veneer topped with another enamel dot, and finished it off with rub on sentiment inside the windshield.
Have a great weekend! I'll be back next week with some new posts.

My little blog has reached a milestone that calls for a celebration! Not just a celebration, but a giveaway too. What are we celebrating? Over 600 posts!
I will send two new Echo Park mini theme collection packs (Ghost Town and Princess) to one lucky, random winner.
What do you have to do? Leave a comment telling me what you like about visiting my blog or an idea about something you'd like to see (maybe more of or something I haven't done). That's it. Easy, right?
I will post the random winner one week from today, on Wednesday 7/30. Good luck!

Last week I posted a layout I made for Simple Stories partnership with May Arts ribbon and Xyron adhesives. Today I'm sharing another layout from that team up.
Remember that blog break I took a couple of weeks ago? We spent part of it at Disney World. The title of this page is a spin off of the name of the resort we stayed at — The Yacht Club.

Simple Stories is partnering with May Arts ribbon and Xyron adhesives this week to bring you some wonderful and inspiring projects. I created two layouts with the Good Day Sunshine collection (my latest fave). I'll share the other layout next week.
It may look as if I pieced together a whole bunch of borders to create the base of this page, but the paper actually comes this way.
All I did was add my photo, a whole bunch of embellishments, and May Arts ribbon (my favorite chevron twill). I love how it turned out!
