Cute scooter card by Teresa DeWitt-Pierce
Hello Rinea fans!
It's Teresa with a cute scooter card made with dies and Rinea foiled papers. I used four of the glossy foiled papers in Sapphire/Gold; Ebony/Gold; and Silver/Gold for this handmade card project. I used the Spellbinders May small die of the month kit which has several dies to make a fun scooter plus some letters and word dies.
Below are my pictures showing what dies I used with each color of foiled papers. First I am showing the main body of the scooter die along with the front wheel well cut from the Sapphire side of the Sapphire/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper. I also die cut these a second time (no picture shown) from white cardstock in order to use the negative pieces when I assembled the card.
Next is the "chrome" motor cover and the tire center cut from the silver side of the Gold/Silver Glossy Foiled paper.
Next, I die cut the tires (largest double circle dies) and the seat from the ebony side of the Ebony/Gold glossy foiled paper.
Next are the headlamps cut from the gold side of the Gold/Silver glossy foiled paper
Here are the assembled wheels (note: I cut the white wheels out of plain white cardstock. The silver portion is the center of the tire)
Partially assembled scooter - must wait to add the last pieces until the layered parts of the card have been added.
I die cut some patterned paper with dark gray "dots" with a rectangle stitched die, plus a smaller rectangle with dark gray cardstock, then glued both down as shown below onto a white card base (standard A2 size: 4 1/4" x 5.5")
After gluing down the partially assembled scooter, I inserted the white pieces I die cut earlier into the scooter to fill in where the spaces had been left by the die in the Sapphire glossy foiled paper (see photo below)
After adding the front wheel I then glued the front wheel well on top and completed the scooter. Next I used the letter dies in the kit to spell out "enjoy" onto another piece of gray cardstock then die cut them. I used a banner die to turn the letters into a banner. Last I used the die cut words "the ride" from the kit out of the ebony glossy foiled paper and glued those on at the bottom corner.
I really think this card turned out to be cute! Imagine all the scooter colors you could create with all the beautiful foiled papers! Here's one more look at my card.
These are the foiled paper colors I used:
Ebony/Gold Glossy Solid Packs & Rolls
Sapphire/Gold Glossy Solid Packs & Rolls
Silver/Gold Glossy Solid Packs & Rolls
Thank you so much for stopping by - I hope you have enjoyed reading about the process and learning one of many ways to use the foiled papers.
