NeeNah - NeeNah - NeeNah...

I've been playing with the vehicles set of Kates doodles again. They make fabaroonie cards for boys. I was asked to make a card for a 3 year old who loves fire engines and 'NeeNahs' - I guess if you have a 3 year old boy in your family you will understand the fascination with emergency vehicles.
(MAMBI paper, Kate Hadfield Doodles, American Crafts Foam Thickers number, Pixie alphabet stamps, Papermill white card, Colorbox charcoal chalk ink)
I printed the fire engine in quite a large size so it would fill up most of the card and added the road so it would have somewhere to drive along.

I printed a second image out and cut different parts of it out (wheels, windows, ladder, shutter, lights, bumper etc.) and used sticky foam pads to give a raised effect and add dimension to the flat image.

I added a number 3 sticker and spelled out his name with alphabet stamps. I'm sure it will be just perfect for a fire engine themed birthday party for 15 three year old boys!!
