Hippie Birthday

This card is a "retro" card (I think) made for a challenge at The Outlawz. I have had this stamp set for quite a while but had never used it. I was saving it for a birthday card to make for a male friend at some point. 

The mini bus and flowers are stamps from GKD So Groovy stamp set. The sentiment is my own, generated by computer. 

The base card was made using GKD Grass Green card stock. I cut a layer in white, scored it on all four sides and adhered it to my base. The pattered paper is one that I found on Etsy. I matted it with the green card stock and adhered that to the white layer of my base card.

I stamped the flowers on the mini bus and then colored them with Copics. Next, I colored the bus, also with Copics, and cut it out. I created the wheels by cutting small circles in black card stock using Spellbinders Standard Circles die. For the wheel centers I used silver mirror paper cut with a regular paper punch.After assembling the wheels on the mini bus, I popped it on my card with dimensionals.

The computer generated sentiment was cut out with Spellbinders Double Ended Tags die. To give it some color, I stamped two flowers on white card stock, colored them, cut them out and then adhered them to either end of the sentiment tag which was then popped on with dimensionals.

Thanks for visiting!  Stop by again!
