Simon Says Stamp Challenge: Transport

Hello everyone!  Hope all is well.  I played along with the Simon Says Stamp Challenge: Transport over at the Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog.  I thought it would be fun since I had to make a Father's Day card and who wouldn't like a chance to win a gift certificate, right?  So anyhoo, here is my card, hope you like it!!
 The little banners under the tag were made with the Epiphany Crafts punch.  I also used the circle bubbles from Epiphany Crafts to add a little extra dimension.

The car was stamped twice, once on the tag and again on some cardstock from the Basic Grey Oxford Collection.  I then hand cut the car and popped it up on dimensionals.  I used some rhinestones from Stampin' Up! as the headlights.  The car stamp is from the On The Move set from Kaisercraft and the sentiment is from Papertrey Ink.
 I also stapled some banners randomly on the inside of the card for a fun look.  I then added a strip of coordinating cardstock to the inside to finish it off.

My next project was to make a gift box for my Father-In-Law.  It is 8x8 and I made it with my Martha Stewart scoring board and two 12x12 sheets of cardstock.  The card was also made from the same coordinating paper pad "The Guy Stack" from DCWV.  I packaged the card in a clear bag and adhered the card to the belly band that went around the box.  That way it could be part of the packaging instead of using a bow.  I tucked a personalized T-Shirt from InkPixi in the box.  It fit perfectly!
Hope you enjoyed today's projects!

Thanks for stopping by!

This is a great Father's Day card! I love that image!! Love the way you used the banners inside and out! I have been eyeing that punch for ages! I like the circle ones too - so fun to use matching papers to make them! :)

I forgot to say how sweet the box is with the card on top! Great idea to use it as the bow! :)
