Father's day

I was asked to make an 8 x 8 father's day card, saying that the recipient is a taxi driver, so I used an old large sizzix die to cut the 'taxi' from the car die with some black shiny card, using a piece of acetate for the windscreen and some pieces of silver foiled card for the headlights.The number plate as generated on my dymo letratag.

The background paper is from the Papermania Mister range with a piece of Kanban extreme splatters foiled card across it with strips of corrugated trim, with the addition of the little die cut troupy with the silver foiled shield with the numeral and the sentiment panel, all raised up to give some dimension to the card.

This is for:
