Thought I'd run you thru making this shaped Wedding card, hope you like it.  Feel free to point & laugh!

Using my Gypsy and Wrap It Up Cartridge, I laid-out the Cricut Cutting Mat with the car-shaped card and all of the detail cuts at 5.3 width (height is set to link so it is proportioned with width). And made all of my cuts.

Papers Used: Making Memories Slice Metallic in Turquoise, Silver & Red, CloseToMyHeart Black & White

Using the Cricut Spatula, I carefully removed all cuts from the Cricut Cutting Mat and laid aside, throwing away any pieces that aren't needed.

Using Scissors, I cut a piece about 2"x1/2" from the Red Metallic paper & added for taillights, making sure none of the red shows on the sides.

Using Piercing Tool, I removed all tiny pieces of paper from the word & put the front sentiment thru the Xyron X.

They I assembled the car except the back window.

Using a Basic Grey stamp set and Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Pumice Stone, stamped the inside sentiment.

Before attaching the back window, I sprayed it with Tattered Angels in Silver Sugar & Tattered Angles in Patina.

Before adding the silver to the tin cans "tied" to the bumper, I colored the turquoise paper with Staz-On to make them look more like soda cans.

Hope you found my little tutorial helpful!

Please let me know if you have any questions
