Carrot Car is Driving By

“Carrot Car!  Carrot Car!  Driving by on a Spring day!”  Sorry – couldn’t resist.  I think this fun carrot car, being driven by a bunny, needs its own theme song. :)  Ever since I received the Hello Spring stamp set from Taylored Expressions I’ve been obsessed with this little image and I finally made a card with it.  Took me long enough! :)


I stamped the carrot car twice and colored both with Copic markers.  I then cut them out (just the car from the first image) and layered them together with dimensionals.  I applied a coating of Glossy Accents to the car and dusted with glitter and added a couple of rhinestone gems to the wheel rims… this is one stylin’ cruise-mo-bile!  I die cut a piece of yellow cardstock using the From the Heart Frame die and used the Hearts Impression Plate on the Kraft background.  A little scrap of designer paper and a bit of yellow ribbon finished the card.


One final note… instead of using my sewing machine I added a bit of faux stitching using a mat pack, paper piercer and white gel pen.  It’s been a long time since I pulled out the white gel pen. :)
