My 75+ uncle is celebrating his birthday. When he first married my aunt, he drove a yellow volkswagen beetle car!! I thought this card might bring back happy memories.
The stamp set is from PaperTrey Ink and I believe it is called "Enjoy the Ride". I also purchased the matching die, so cutting out the volkswagen was easy. Tons of Art Institute glitter to help simulate 'metallic' paint, even though his old car was just a flat yellow paint. I had almost finished adding the Viva Decor red pearls around the Nestability when one of them 'splurted' out eeeeeekkkk.... so I had to save the card by making all of the others flatter and bigger; not my original intent. I added some red glass flatback gemstones as the turn signal lights and the cool thing with these is if you hold the card under the light at just the right angle, the light shines through the red glass and they actually look like they are lit! Crystal Effects is on the headlamps and the windshield.
Thanks for Looking!
