Cricut 360 - Challenge #5 - Transportation

Good morning crafty friends,

Happy Friday and welcome to another fabulous challenge over at Cricut 360! We would like to thank all of you who participate in our weekly challenges. We always love to see all your fabulous creations! Also, we have a lot of fun challenges coming up, so definitely keep checking back. This week’s challenge is to create a card or layout using a mode of transportation (Trains, Ships, Automobiles, Planes, etc.) I was super excited with this challenge and immediately knew what my project was going to be. I decided to make a birthday card for my boyfriend; his birthday is in 2 weeks. Since he loves vintage cars, I went with the Groovy Times Cartridge. I tried to keep it as simple as possible since it is a masculine card. I just love the way this card turned out and I can’t wait to give him the card! Here are the specifics:

Card Size 5 ½” x 5 ½”
Cartridges used: Groovy Times (Car & layers @ 2.95” and Mats @ 5.60” & 5.35”)
Solid Cardstock: Embossed Paper – Bazzill “Pistachio Nut” and all other are Recollections
Patterned Paper: Scraps
Sentiment: Computer - (outside of card) You’re not old - (inside of card) You’re a classic! Happy Birthday
Bling: My stash

This week's fabulous prize for one lucky winner will be a Basic Grey 6x6 Paper Pack "Ambrosia"

So get crafting and we look forward to seeing your creation! 
 Thanks for stopping by!
