My Grandson Loves Cars -- Here's a CAS Card

My grandson has loved cars since ....forever!  Well he just turned 5, but he has played with hot wheels since he could pick one up.  And Disney's "Cars"!!!!  Well, he LOVES it.  I have done the Disney thing, so this year it had to have a little 'different' take on the same old theme.  LOL  And since he now lives in Canada it takes forever for mail to get there, so I also am going 'different' for me with more of a CAS card.  Oh boy!

So what to do with a car?  I had heard about a "wobbly" thing that makes an item jiggle around.  And I have a friend who tried making one (and she said it took way to long to get it right).  Well I found the thing at a chain store here in Illinois called Archivers.

They come in a pack of 6 and it has a plastic concentric circle that has sticker paper attached on both sides.  Very easy to use.  For my purposes, I has to cut down the stickers because my image was small.

I had purchased a clear stamp set at Michael's just for this occasion (sorry I do not remember who the set is by, but when I get back to Florida I can let you know if you would like to email me).  The set comes with the checkerboard and all that you see here.   I stamped the car two times and fussy cut one of the images to pop up and wobble.  For the fire, I used a marker to ink that part of the image.   And that's it!  Clean and simple, right?  Oh yeah, the wobble.  All I had to do was cut the adhesive area smaller to fit the car and there you have it.

Above is a close-up of the car.  I hope my sweetie-pie grandson likes it as much as I do.
Happy Birthday!

Cheesy Sandy

COOL CARD! Fab for a guy too - I'd not seen those stamps in Michaels but it's been a few weeks, MAYBE they've renewed their inventory!! I have some of those fab wobblers too ... every time I go to use them I find just a smidge too big for my image and have to resort to plan B!! One day ...

Cute card Sandy. I wish they made wobbles in different sizes like googly eyes! I'd use them more often.

Great idea, Miss Cheesy! I always love how you share the "secrets" of your cards and show the details. I bet your "sweetie-pie grandson" loves his boy-card, and keeps it. Love all the racing details with the blistering exhaust and checkered borders - wow! You are a wonderful gran'ma. love you! xo

Cute card! I bet your grandson loved it. You are reminding that I purchased those wobbles and have yet to use them. Thanks for the inspiration.
