Hello Kitty Car Card
I cut the car card shape from Hello Kitty Greetings and all the front layers. I cut 2 layers of the car front, wheels, light, Hello Kitty's arm, and bumper and pop dotted it to the original layers to get lots of dimension. I hand cut the sentiment banner and stamped the sentiment from My Pink Stamper's Boy Crazy stamp set.
My trick I want to share today is how the sentiment banner folds up! I love making cards like this but they're not very friendly when you try to put them into an envelope. Or you have to make custom envies for them. I made mine so it will fold up and fit into an A2 sized envelope.
I did this by mounting the sentiment banner to a brad that is sandwiched in between the layers. With the pop dots, it will move freely. So before I adhered the front car to the card base, I punched a hole under the back layer of the car and secured the banner to the car with a brad. Then I glued down the front to the card base, but not gluing around that side of the car or brad. This way it will move freely and you can fold it up!
I am going to enter this card into the following challenges:
1. My Craft Spot- Things That Go- Cars, planes, boats, etc.
2. Fantabulous Cricut- On The Go!- cars, planes, bikes, etc.
3. Little Scrap Pieces- Pink and or Purple
Thank for stopping in and taking a look! I hope you all understood my trick that I shared today. Have a great day!
