Found a card on the Stampin' UP! Stampin' Connection for demonstrations made by LeeAnn Greff that resembles the VW Beetle Cars. She made hers red but I have an auntie that is a fanatic about yellow ones!! It is her dream car!! I added rhinestone brads for the headlights & created the road to drive on. Hope she likes it!

Supplies used:

Paper: YoYo Yellow, Basic Black, Basic Grey, Glorious Green & Whisper White
Punches: Jumbo Oval, Large Oval, Ornament, 3/4" Circle, 1/2" Circle.

The hood of the car is a Jumbo Oval punch with 2 large ovals for the 3-D effect on the hood.
The top of the car is a Jumbo Oval.
The windshield of the car is a large oval punch.
The rearview mirrow is the top of the Ornament punch.
The wheel hubs are a large oval cut in half (one for each side).
The headlights are a rhinestone brad with a 1/2" circle behind it.
The wheels are a 3/4" circle.
The lever on the hood of the car is also a top of the Ornament punch cut to fit.
The bumper is a 1/4" strip of Basic Grey cardstock that I put into the 3/4" circle punch to round the corners.

For Jordan's Teacher

This is what my son and I made for his teacher for Teacher Appreciation week/day.
We made the rose with the Ornament Punch. He did all of the color on the Whisper White cardstock with Melon Mambo Ink and a sponge. Then he helped me put the rose together and then rolled over and fell fast asleep!!! I mounted the flowing on a Scallop Circle (Old Olive Cardstock) that I cut in the Big Shot. Next I used the Scallop Oval Punch (folded it in half) and ran it through the Crimper and then opened it to create the leaves. His favorite color is blue so I use Pacific Point Blue Cardstock and put it through the Big Shot with the Beautiful Wings embosslit and put them onto the flower with mini glue dots
He's a pretty good kid! H0pe she likesi
