Cherry Lynn Vintage Christmas Car

Hi everyone!

This fun classic vintage car from Cheery Lynn reminded me of when I was a kid and our family packed up and headed to Grandma and Grandpa's house for Christmas. SO... I decided to create a Christmas scene with it for my siblings!

 We actually did put luggage and presents on top of our car...but in a luggage rack. There were 4 kids, one large black lab and our parents, so we all barely fit inside! Since I was the youngest, I sat in the front, in the middle. That was the worst...with a hump on the floor, and very little room to get comfortable at all. It was a 3 hour drive!  BUT those are some of the best memories I have..the trips of us all together in that car!

First I cut out the car and presents:

Cheery Lynn Designs - Classic Car Die Set - 13 Die Set - B944

Cheery Lynn Designs - Deco Christmas Tree - 5 Piece - B915

Then I adhered them onto a blue circle, and added some holly from the Christmas Wreath set:

After I stamped the sentiment, I added some flecks of snow with white paint and a toothbrush.

Here's a list of the dies I used:

Fantastically cute and fun, Laurie! Your car appears to be bouncing happily down the road and I know it will bring back smile-filled memories for your siblings. Those times are always sweetest when they become memories. Love the blue circle and all the other colors, as well as the crisp, cute sentiment. I'm curious as to how you get such perfect small splatters with a toothbrush. When I was a kid we'd run the toothbrush over a screen on a box. Paper and real leaves in the bottom of the box. The box stopped the splatter from going everywhere and we'd end up with the coolest stipple look. One of those things that stands out in my memory, like your car rides to Grandma's.
