Beep Beep

Here is today's card, perfect for a little boy!

The card is 5" round.  I used the "Wild Card" cartridge for the card base, and the circle mats.  The card base I used can be found on page 48 of the handbook.  I just used Cricut Craft Room to hide the circle cut-out in the middle of the card.  I then used the liner feature for that same cut and hid the interior cut again to create my striped mat, it was cut at 4 3/4."

The car is from the "Beep Beep" cartridge.  I cut it at 3."  I used Cricut Craft Room to hide the smile that would have been cut out of the red layer, just above the bumper.  I added some googly eyes to the windshield and adhered it to the card on an action wobble, so it wiggles around.

The sentiment is from Scrappy Moms Stamps, the "Dancing in Circles" set.  I cut out a 1 1/4" circle and stamped the sentiment with rich cocoa ink by Tsukineko.  I added a red button to the middle of the sentiment to finish off the outside of the card.

The inside has the same size striped mat as the outside (4 3/4").  I also cut another circle out of cream, this one at 3 1/2."  I then used a stamp from Paper Smooches for my interior sentiment.  It is from the "Birthday Sampler" set and is also stamped in the rich cocoa ink.  I also trimmed the bottom edge of the  inside of the card so that it would stand upright.

I made this card for the following challenges:
BBTB2: car
My Sheri Crafts: masculine
The Friday Mashup: project with a movable element and stripes
{PIN}spirational Challenges: photo inspiration (I was inspired by the colors of the truck and the child in it - hence why I made a card for little boy)
