I used a paper cutter to cut the card at 6.5 x 10 from Cloud9Design double sided card stock. The other papers I found in my scrap box to coordinate with the blue, green and cream stripes. The dark blue rectangle is 2.5 x 4 with the corners rounded. The light blue horizontal stripe is 1 x 6.5 and embossed with the Cuttlebug to give the checkerboard design. The copper stripe is .25 x 6.5.
When I cut the gas pump I found the tiny letters and silver details were to small to handle. I used the very fine point of the Sharpie pen for the word “gas” and the silver gel pen for the hose details. The green border I thought had a nice 1950’s vibe, but it was either too tall or not long enough. The cut at 1.25 worked when I made two and covered the seam with the gas pump.
I cut the phrase in the dark blue and its shadow in the striped paper with the stripes running horizontally to mimic the lettering. For the convertible I use red, light blue and white with the black bottom layer. I cut the pop-up strip .25 x 5.5 and folded it at the 1 in., 1.5 in., 1 in., 1.5in. and .5 marks. The method is the same as I used in the Baby Shower Card. With all the pieces ready and the envelope cut from cream paper I assembled the card.
