This is a birthday card I made for the boy across the street. He is turning 8 today. He always has half the town at his parties, so instead of getting him another toy for his mom to pick up or trip over, I get him a gift card for an activity. This year it is a bowling alley/go-cart place. I copied this card out of a Cricut idea book I got on sale at HL. I think it is so cute! Cartridge is Graphically Speaking. The license plate is one of the tires in blackout mode cut out of white. I found a license plate font and printed HB2U on it. There is a brad on the left under the headlight so it can swing open. Inside I made a pocket for the gift card. I stamped "enjoy the ride" from PTI's Everyday Button Bits on the pocket on the inside. The headlights are 3/4" circles punched from yellow and covered with glitter, popped up on foam tape. Car body is metallic red (Bazzill? I got it at my LSS.) Sorry about the wonky second pic and the shadows. Hope you've enjoyed looking today!
