You're Car-ismatic


This is a fun set for any car enthusiast called Cars - Clyde by Sparkle N Sprinkle.  I've used the car image called Harvey for my guy card.  He's all decked out in my version of a metallic finish.


In order to create you own version of this card, start out by die cutting a piece of Sticker Paper with the Deckled Edge Classic Ovals Large die from Spellbinders.  Be sure to save the backing paper for the next step. Take the backing paper and stamp the image with Staz-On.  Allow to dry for a minute or two and then fussy cut it out for your mask.  Stamp the image again onto the sticker paper and then cover the stamped image with the mask you just created.  Pour Cloud Nine Velvet glitter over the exposed adhesive on the sticker paper and burnish it in with your finger.

Use an Exacto knife and cut out the windows of the car.  You want to apply enough pressure to cut the mask, but not all the way through to the sticker paper.  Add Mountain Mint Velvet glitter and burnish it in.  Do the same thing for the car tires and cover with Black Detail Velvet glitter.  Finally, you're ready to expose the rest of the car.  Cover it with Celebration Velvet glitter.  You car now has it's own sparkly, metallic looking finish.  The photo on the left really shows all the colors of glitter, especially in the Celebration glitter.

The card base is dry embossed with the Industrial embossing folder by Spellbinders.  It goes perfectly with any type of vehicle image.  Adhere the sticker paper to the top.

To create the sentiment, I played around with some new Inka Gold metallic paints from Viva Decor.  I randomly applied Cobalt Blue and Violet to a piece of acetate.  I didn't want to cover the entire area as I wanted some clear areas.  I cut this out with the Spellbinders Grommet Tag die and stamped my sentiment with Staz-On.  DMC Memory Thread (which has a little bit of wire in it) adheres the tag to the card.
