Happy Father's Day Card with Billionaire



Today's Father's Day card was quick and easy! The card is sized at 4-1/4" x 5-1/2".

 I used the new Cricut Lite Billionaire cartridge and cut out this car image at 4", all the layers except for the shadow layer.  Since I didn't use the shadow feature, I had to add in the windows, so I used some silver Stardream shiny paper for them.

I intended the car to go off the card so it could fill the space.  I just then used the trimmer to slice off the back end of the car.  The background paper is from Bella Blvd. and the cardstock is from Core'dinations.  I used a Studio G stamp for the sentiment and punched it out with an EK Success punch.  I laid the sentiment on top of a (conveniently) matching ribbon I had handy.  Viola!  Done!
