Village Vehicles Graduation/Promotion Card by Lynn Dionne

 Happy Wednesday Ai Fans!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

Today we will be using the brand-new stamp set from the Art Impressions Village Series! This set is called the Ai Village Vehicles Set (5889) and includes several little trucks, cars and even an airplane which will coordinate perfectly the new FREEBIES! These new FREEBIES include several different village houses/shops including a schoolhouse, cafe, hotel, candy shop, bakery and pet shop. Here's the fun part ...there are three add-on sets that will coordinate with these FREEBIE stamps. The Village Vehicles (5889) which we will be using today and also the Village Accessories (5890) and the Village Signage (5891).

These FREEBIES will be free with each $30 purchase and the add-on sets can be purchased as a bundle or individually. The bundle set will be at a discounted price!

We are going to use the little vehicles in a unique and different way to create a fun Graduation or even a promotion card!

Let's begin by stamping and coloring in all of the vehicles using the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens in the following colors: Blender, Lemon Yellow, Yellow, Orange, Geranium Red, Lt Green, Dk Green, Haze Blue, Aquamarine Blue, Blue, Cool Gray 6, Lt Gray.

We can then use our detail scissors to cut these out leaving a little bit of a white border all the way around.

Next, we can create the background panel by die cutting a circle from some white cardstock which has been cut to 5 1/4" x 5 1/4". We can use the Ai Nested Circle Dies (5726) and center this circle die on the square panel.

Let's then create a pretty sunburst background using a Sunray Background Stencil and some Distress Oxide Inks in Squeezed Lemonade and Abandoned Coral. We will stencil half of the panel and then turn the stencil and complete the other half to create a complete circle sunburst!

Now let's stamp a globe and then color and die cut it using that same circle die set. We will also add some Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Pen to the water on our globe!

For the card base we will use a pretty Arctic 100lb Cardstock. This card will measure 5 1/2" x 5 1/2". We can temporarily position the frame and the globe so that we can add a sentiment from the Ai Graduation Set (5277) to the front of the card that will say "You're really going places!". We can cut the stamp in half so that we can position the sentiment on a curve right above the globe.

Now let's do a quick assembly of the card and pop-up the vehicles in a circle around the globe and sunburst. I also added a few vehicles on the inside of the card along with another sentiment from the Ai Graduation Set (5277) which says, "Look out world!".

For a finishing touch, let's add a pop of color in Sunshine for a bit of dimension and .... don't tell anyone .... to also cover up a little smudge that I had!

Thank you so much for joining me today!  Have a fun and crafty day!!!
