One of my brother-in-laws loves VW cars and has his own VW Beetle which is his pride and joy, so I always try to make a birthday card featuring a VW car. I had an old Crafter’s Companion Die-sire ‘Circle Swing’ die set and this became a fun interactive base for the car. He also loves gardening and I have used Honey Bee Stamps: Lovely Layers – Spring Greenery Honey Cuts and Lovely Layers – Dianthus Honey Cuts to decorate the card. The stamp is from Montarga Rubber Stamps shop and it fitted perfectly on the card framed with all the flowers and foliage.
For my project I die cut and assembled the base card following the instructions from the ‘Circle Swing’ die set. I used the Heartfelt Creations Snowy Pines pale green paper as a background for the decorative dies.
I stamped the VW car image using Memento ink on copic friendly cardstock. I coloured the image with Copic markers and then fussy cut the image. I placed this image on the inner circle that is facing the front when the card is folded up.
I die cut three ‘happy birthday’ dies from the Amazing Paper Grace Happy Occasions Words Dies, stacked them together and then added them to the back side of the inner circle.
I die cut the foliage and flowers from the Honey Bee Stamps: Lovely Layers – Spring Greenery Honey Cuts dies in different colours and assembled them before adding them to the sides of the card and both front and back of the inner circle. I coloured the Honey Bee Stamps: Lovely Layers – Dianthus with purple and green inks before assembling them and adding them around the foliage as shown.
