Out for a drive

I'm often guilty of only using the items from a set - of dies, of stamps, a pad of paper or a kit - with the other items it came with, when in fact many of them would work perfectly well alone or with other items.

This car die is an example - it's meant to be a London Taxi, from the Xcut Build a Scene London set, and it certainly looks great cut in black and used that way. But it makes a great "people carrier" style car whatever colour it is cut in.

I've cut it in snippets of red, yellow and blue and used a fine marker to colour in the wheels, and added a "hill" and a cute, childlike sentiment as I think this would make a great card for a little boy.

I am sharing this with

Super CAS card, Jane. Great idea to use the taxi die in different colours.

I'm back from a week away and catching up on my blog visiting. Great selection of cards on your blog over the last few days, I especially love your kilted Santa! xx
