Tutorial: Father's Day Card - Car Themed

A new video is up! This is the first of three father's day card
tutorials going up over the next couple weeks.

If your dad loves cars, especially old cars, this card will be perfect for Father's Day!

Here is the colored image of the car. Use this to see where each piece goes on the car and which color of paper to use. (You don't need to print this, just keep it on screen where you can see it.)

(I just used the same paper as the body of the car for #3, and colored it slightly darker with a pencil.)

Here are the patterns:

To print it, hover over it and click the right icon at the top
(that says "Pop-out" when you hover on it). Next, click on the printer icon at the top.
Finally, make sure the paper size on the lower left is set to 8x10.

(Note: If you do not have a Google account you unfortunately may not be able to access this file due to the way Google Drive (where this file is stored) works. If you have a Google account, open another window and log into it, then reload this page. If you don't have a google account, you can make one here)

Keep in mind that there are a few numbers missing.

(In the final version, I decided to take out a few pieces to simplify it, and I didn't want to change the numbers because they'd be different than what was shown in the video)

The numbers that are missing are 1, 12, 13, 14, 15 & 17 -  just skip over these.
(You'll be starting with #2 and ending with #21)

To make this, you'll need:
- the patterns above (and access to a printer)
- a silver marker/ silver Sharpie
- a pencil
- a pen
- scissors
- glue
- scrapbook paper

You'll need 5 colors of scrapbook paper for this project:
- one for the body of the car
- one for the accent color of the car
- one for the tires and grill
- one for the windows
- and one for the base of the card

Feel free to ask any questions! If you make this project, I'd love to see it - tag me on instagram @pugdemonium.  I hope to share some of these photos in a video soon!
