HAPPY DAD'S DAY...a beach scene card

this week at the cutting cafe we were asked to make a project using an image from the "cruisin by  to say hi (printable set)" OR the "shirt and tie" (cutting file). 

 when i saw this cute sports vehicle i was thinking i would like to take my hubby to the beach for father's day but since that won't be possible i decided to create a beach scene card to make him drool on his day...hehe

and since this is a printable file i had the choice to color it in or use one already colored.


Happy Dad's Day
3.5" x 4.5"
first, i printed out the car on regular white cardstock and then i printed out the top (blue/yellow area) and on some patterned paper. you can see the graphics pattern on it. i did color the bottom of the car to make it darker (it comes in gray). and popped the top on some dimensional foam adhesive...it looks so cooler in real life.
do not laugh at the sand paper.....it  is soooooo old...lol-- but perfect for my beachy scene. 

i also used an embossing folder to emboss the clouds, some paper punches to punch out more clouds which i added on top of some of the embossed ones, a cricut cartridge for the palm tree and the sun and another punch for the starfish.
you can't see it well but i also added some glossy accents to the rims, headlights the car steel frame and trunk of the palm tree. i stamped the sentiment despite the file comes with so many sentiments. i just forgot about it. shame on me!
anyway, 
i had so much fun making working with this file and i think my hubby will be pleased.

below is the file i used linked to the cutting cafe, if you want to see a lot more.


enjoy your week!
 and thank you so much for stopping by flowerdisco's scrap hut
