We Were Born 2 Shop, Girlfriend!

Hello everyone.  Today I have a fun card that I made with my Silhouette Cameo to share with you.  I took what was supposed to be a scrapbook page embellishment and made it into a birthday card.  I love these two fun girls out for a good time in their polka dot convertible.  I think I want that car!!!

In order to convert the two dimensional cut into a three dimensional card, I replicated the base layer with "mirror above" and welded the two base layers together.  After that it was just a matter of selecting colors for various parts of the card.  I knew I wanted pink and black, but I had to select hair colors, skin colors, etc.

I decided to make the girls a blonde and a "ginger".  I gave them pink tops and pink sunglasses, alternating between bright pink and baby pink.  I even added a bit of pink chevron into the mix.

I love the little Born 2 Shop license plate, though I did not realize that the P had shifted until I was creating this blog post.  Ooops.

Bethany dropped by I asked if she needed a birthday card and as it turns out, she did.  She was very happy with these cut girls and their polka dot-mobile!

If you search the Silhouette store for Born 2 Shop Car you will be able to find this image!
