A card with presents

Still in Birthday mode here with just a few more to complete.

I was going to stamp something to do with presents, but I enjoyed making the cat card so much the other day so
once I decided on what I wanted the presents to be delivered on I went to wk.
Gina K's "You Know You're Old When" stamp set kept coming to mind, but that car was just a tad small
for what I wanted. Granny was perfect though, so I stamped it out and
cut her and the bucket seats out, drew a car that was bigger, more room for her and the presents, on the back of the
thin cardboard from some embellishments I had laying around, painted it blue and added a few scuff marks, bling, and
I used a 1/8" & 3/4" punch for the tires and popped them up on the front, I cut one in half for the back tires.

Here is the Gina K. Stamp, and my car.

Then I cut out a 6 squares from my Glitter Mat Stack in different sizes for the presents,
cause presents should sparkle, Right? Popped dotted them on top of each other and added ribbon scraps, bling on one present
and the headlights.

I mounted all this on white glitter pp but it was missing something, so I found
this scalloped piece of, you guessed it, more cardboard from a pkg. of embellishments,
that had a cute pattern on it, and it was green so why not. I then popped it all up and now granny is ready to deliver all
those yummy looking presents to that special little person.

Here is a side view to show the dimension.
That's it for now. Hope you like it.

Thanks for stopping by
