I’m sharing a fun card with you today featuring the Spellbinders Sunday Drive die set and add on. This one has a lot of pieces, but the end result is so cute!
To start things off, I did some ink blending with my Distress Oxide inks. I used Chipped Sapphire, Blueprint Sketch, Mermaid Lagoon, Peacock Feathers, and Chipped Sapphire to blend a pretty blue and green gradient. I sprayed a little water into my hand, then flicked droplets of water onto my blended background. After waiting a few seconds, I used a paper towel to absorb any excess water and set the pane aside to dry.
Next, I started working on my paper piecing. I cut all of the dies from Sunday Drive from a piece of white cardstock. I used alcohol markers to color the individual pieces. I love using this method as I feel it gives the finished project a much more dimensional feel than using colored cardstock.
I assembled the dies to build up my car – seriously how cute is that!? Once my car was done, I trimmed down the ink blended panel to about 2×5.5 inches and adhered it to a white A2 card base. I attached the car and then added the balloons. I used the little strings meant for the cans from the add on as balloon strings – they’re perfect! I finished off the card by adding a little clear Nuvo Drops to the metal parts of the car. I love the subtle shine you get with this easy addition.
I layered the ‘hitched’ add on die on the trunk of the card and then stamped ‘celebrate’ inside the trunk. Now when the flap is open, the hidden sentiment is revealed!
Just like that – our card is done! I hope you enjoyed today’s project. Be sure to let me know what you think about it in the comments. If you’ve made a card with this set, or end up making one, be sure to tag me on social media ( @acarddayswork ) so I can see what you made!
