What you Need

Free Template

Dovecraft A4 Coloured Card Stock, Black Card Stock, Acetate, A4 Silver Mirror Card, Wooden Alphabet Stamps

First Edition Pick n’ Mix 8x8 Paper Pad

How to Make

1. Print the free template and cut it out.


2. Fold your chosen Dovecraft A4 card in half, line the template at the top and cut out the car. Ensure the car template lines up along the fold of the sheet of card. Use Washi Tape to secure the template to the card, cut out the windows with a craft knife and tape pieces of Dovecraft acetate behind the windows with Dovecraft Perma Fix tape.


3. Choose a paper design from the First Edition Pick n’ Mix 8x8 paper pad, adhere to the inside of the card, at the back and cut off the excess.


4. Use a fine liner pen to add faux stitching along the edge of the car and windows, at the front. Cut two doors out of a complementing Pick and Mix paper design, add faux stitching along the edges and adhere the doors underneath the windows, at the front of your card. Cut out two wheels from a sheet of Dovecraft black card and glue them to the card.


5. Cut out the bumper shapes, inside of the wheels and door handles out of Dovecraft Silver Mirror card and adhere to the car. Cut out a small hand wheel to adhere to the inside of the card, peeping through the window!


6. Stamp the words ‘Best Dad’ onto a piece of Pick n’ Mix paper using the Dovecraft Wooden Alphabet Stamps, cut out a flag shape and adhere to the car window.


This totally takes card making to the next level! We adore this clever design and better yet, you can change the sentiment to use this card shape for other occasions like Birthdays, passing a driving test etc.
