Artfully Sent Automobile Pop Up Thank You Card

What you are about to see is result of the collaboration of creative minds at the crop I went to on Saturday.  It was SUCH a great way to try out the Artfully Sent Collection and get everyone excited while doing so!  I just LOVE when everyone is contributing ideas saying, "OOOOH!  Add this!"  and "use THAT!!!!"

I wanted to make a thank you card for one of my daughter's friends for taking her to get a new phone when hers died the other day.  (THAT is a story in itself, lol!)  Here is what we came up with!

I chose to use the Thistle colored paper from the Paper Fundamentals Whimsy collection.  These papers all have a shiny embossed pattern on one side and the same pattern in white on the other.  They are FANTASTIC card bases! 

Since this is a thank you card, I pulled out one of the stamp sets that accompanies the Artfully Sent Cartridge--yep--there was a thank you sentiment!  :)  The Black Glitter Paper is a GREAT highlight on the large card front.  This one is a 5 x 7 finished size when you use the sizing on the handbook.

Oh my, those nails were sparkly!  Love my Jams!
Well, Morgan's car is grey, so I thought this was the perfect color combo!  I used my Close to My Heart Slate and Whisper CS for the car and added a silver glitter paper framed personalized license plate suggested by a cropper! 

This alphabet even comes with the Cricut collection exclusively available from your Close to My Heart Consultant--ME!  :)  

 My cropping peep was totally right about the glitter paper being the PERFECT road!  Thanks, Eileen!

Oh my goodness, I just adore how this one turned out!!!  Now to pop in a gas station card and send it!  :)

I am linking this up with the Simon Says Transport It Challenge!  :)
