Teegan's Birthday Card

I made this card for a friend's birthday party my daughter was invited to go to. He is a huge Cars fan. Every gift he got tonight was Cars theme, along with the whole birthday party. I used my Gypsy and the Disney/Pixar Cars cartridge to make the card. I first put the shadow feature on and used black cardstock to make the base of the card. I copied the shadow then flipped and welded the two together to make the base of the card. All of the rest of his features were cut using scraps from my scrap bin. I used the Gypsy to position all of the cuts on one mat so that I only needed to cut once and then layer him all together. I LOVE how he turned out and he wasn't to bad to put together. I don't believe you can cut him any smaller as some of the cuts were pretty small even at this size of about 3 1/2 x 5 3/4. On the inside on the card I printed a sentiment with my computer and then mounted it on a scrap of yellow cardstock. I think I will be making another one of these for another little boys party we have been invited to this weekend. Maybe this time I will try Matter.

I have been working really hard on my baby announcements and some thank you cards for when the baby comes. I unfortunately won't be able to post them until after the baby arrives as some of my family don't know what we are having and want to be surprised. I will post them a soon as the little one arrives.
