I'm sharing a card today to play along with this week's Make It Monday - Paper Piecing. I always like the look of paper piecing, but don't utilize the technique very much. since I needed a card for my nephew's upcoming birthday, I thought that Enjoy the Ride would be a fun set to use for this technique.
I pieced the car together using papers from Doodlebug's "Boys Only" 6"x6" paper pad. The car is popped up on my square card base, which I layered with Simply Chartreuse cardstock, Summer Sunrise and Limeaid Ice pattern paper, and a striped paper also from the Doodlebug line. I used a Fabulous Frames die to cut the frame from a piece of the Doodlebug paper - I thought the number pattern was appropriate for birthday theme.
Here's a close-up of the license plate, customized with Simple Alphabet. I just love doing this with Enjoy the Ride! :)
I'm really pleased with how this card turned out - I think it's bright, happy and fun, yet still masculine enough for a boy. I hope my nephew likes it too! I'm so glad that Melissa shared the paper piecing challenge this week - thanks, Melissa!
And thanks for stopping by!
