Fantabulous Cricut: "Road Trip" Car Card

This week's Fantabulous Cricut challenge is called "Road Trip":  Make a project incorporating a vacation or travel.  I love this car from the Cricut "Just Because Cards" cartridge.  It's so vintage and cool!

For this card, I cut the layers of the car and adhered them together, inking each of the pieces.  I added silver paint (paint pen) to the bumper to make it look more realistic.  Then I added rhinestones for the headlight and tailight.  I adhered a strip of embossed (Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder) paper to the bottom of the card base and adhered the car to the card with foam dots.

To finish, I cut the sentiment, "Getting there..." and adhered it to the front and added flowers accented with mini buttons.  The inside says, "...is half the fun!".

Hope you'll head over to FCCB and check out the other FANTABULOUS design team projects!  Be sure to link up your own "road trip" project by next Sunday for your chance to win this week's prize!!! 

Happy crafting!  :)

Hi Lori:

I saw a post on your blog about the DOC Band appeal and would love if you could help me with ours! We were denied about a year ago and have already done one appeal...working on another one. I can't access any of the medical journals that I want to print up, so I am hoping that you could send me a copy of your appeal, pretty please! We are in urgent need of getting reimubursed! I would truly appreciate it. Could you please email me at a.j.sangiorgio@gmail.com Thank you sooo much!

Great card, Lori! I love that touch of silver paint. It just adds so much and looks so striking with the blue. Love that touch of embossing too.
