Wplus9 - Punch Buggy!

Punch buggy seems to be the all the rage now from TV commercials to my friend's girls playing in the back seat of the car during long trips.  When I saw the green color I immediately thought of this stamp and couldn't wait to use Lime green on this VW bug inspired stamp.  The card is designed to fit a standard business envelope, #10.  I embossed it with Cuttlebug's Diamond Plate folder.

The cars were stamped with PTI's Hawaiian Shore, PTI-Orange Zest, and Colorbox- Lime.  Then mounted with dimensionals on PTI's Dark Chocolate and matted with Hawaiian Shores paper.

I added bling to the cars with clear crystals for headlights and silver pearls for fender lights.  Kudos goes to Fiskar's Compact Stamp Press which I used to first stamp the car image and then perfectly align the solid stamp which provide the color.  The cars were cut out of PTI's Stampers Select White using the Enjoy the Ride Car die.

The Punch Buggy sentiment is stamped with Just Rite's Times New Roman font and then white heat embossed.

To jazz up the inside, which I was reminded to do by iEmbellish recent posts, I adhered PTI's Orange Zest cardstock and stamped the car image in Versamark and then stamped the sentiment.  The car image and inside sentiment are from PTI's Enjoy the Ride set.

Thanks for stopping by the blog,  Jessica
