I knew I wanted to do this little buggy in yellow so I did one in purple too! Thanks to Lynn Pratt. She offers a free tutorial and template for this card. If you're looking for some really clever 3 D projects Lynn has dozens of tutorials for sale. Cars, trucks, tackle boxes, brief cases, pianos and so much more. Take a look you'll be delighted with the possibilities.
I had some fun jazzing up these buggies with silver bumpers and headlights. I added an acetate windshield, a lady bug and side view mirrors and a license plate. I put tires on the top and bottom of the card, so that it will stand up. For some added dimension I did some dry embossing on the hood and headlights then added dimensional dots. The paper has a shimmer to it making it sparkle. I think this will cheer up anyone feeling under the weather.
I 'm preparing for a show and tell demonstration at our monthly Woman's club luncheon. Along with months of cards created for challenges and my blog, I've made several Easter cards to offer for sale. I will decorate all the tables with the paper roses I've been making for weeks. I can only make 2 a day because texturizing them is so hard on my hands. Copy paper works best but I had card stock in red, yellow and pink so I used what I had. I just love these flowers, to turn flat paper into this rose amazes me.
I will also showcase the lanterns I made for Spring and Halloween This show and tell will help me be prepared to present at craft shows.
I plan on giving a rose to each of our members that attend. The roses can be used to decorate a gift instead of a bow to make it extra special.
Now to complete this post here's another card inspired by one I saw on Pinterest. So fun and feminine. The paper cracked on the fold so I will try again with different paper.
