Lori Whitlock Little Man Car Shaped Card with Challenge

I’m excited to be hosting another Link Up party on Lori Whitlock's Blog today!  :)

Today's challenge is all about shaped cards!  I'm a sucker for shaped cards and Lori has sooo many good ones to chose from.  This challenge can also include shaped cards you create from 2D cutting files as I shared in a past video tutorial HERE

For my project I used Lori's darling Car Shaped Card and then added a doggie driver using her dog shaped card.  It's probably hard to tell, but I thought it would be fun to create a compound path and cut the windows out of both the card base and card front.  This allowed me to sandwich a piece of clear acetate between the layers for my car windows to peek through to the inside.



























I embellished my car with some metallic paper, silver brads and some seriously ancient metal rim pieces by ScrapWorks called Hugz (they have metal prongs that pierce through the cardstock and fold over on the backside).  ;)

For the inside of my card, I added a fun sentiment from Technique Tuesday's new Mister Man stamp set.  Black enamel dots were the perfect finishing touch for my puppy dog's eyes.


For this challenge you can use any or Lori’s files from her SVG Shop or the Silhouette Online Store. You have until July 16th to link-up your project.  The winner will receive a gift card to Lori's shop and will be announced on her blog on July 17th!  

Have fun playing and let your creativity guide you.  I can't wait to see what you come up with!  :)
