Silhouette Cameo Wedding car card for Silhouette Challenges

For my shaped card, I decided to make a wedding card for a couple whose wedding we will be attending in a few weeks. I used a wedding car shape from the Silhouette Store, duplicated it above and welded the two parts together to create the base card. The wheels were cut from plain black card

and they looked a little bland, but  I remembered that I have a tiny chevron stamp, which I rooted out and stamped the wheels with Versamark ink and clear embossed them to create some tyre treads.

I was wishing that I had used textured card for the base card because it also looked too plain but I embossed it with an impression plate to add a little texture. The car lights were cut in red and then coated with glossy accents to make them look like glass. After I cut the heart out, I overstamped it with a tiny polka dot stamp and inked the edges to add a little more interest. This was the final result

Head on over to see what the DT has created for your inspiration and link up today.
