Punch Buggy Yellow

Do your kids/grandkids love to play the Yellow Car and Punch Buggie games? My girls do and we often have a hilarious journey trying to beat each other to find both and call "punch buggy yellow"! Being in the driver's seat has its advantages and disadvantages, mind you! But we can't play Yellow car when we are in Melbourne with DD19 as she lives very close to the CBD and all the taxis are yellow! LOL

So having seen a gorgeous punch art VW beetle some time ago, I finally got around to making a punch buggy yellow card - literally! Here tis:

I love it! Takes me back aeons ago to my own childhood when we had a white VW beetle - named Herbie of course! (For those of you ancient enough to remember the original Love Bug movies!)

Thanks for dropping in.


Edited to add Punches used:

  • Wide oval - hood & car top
  • Large oval - windshield, hood & side fenders
  • Word Window - bumper
  • Modern Label - tires
  • 1/2" circle - black headlights
  • new punch pack 3/8" circle - gray headlights
  • Horizontal slot punch - rear view mirror, bumper add-ons & hood handle

I think you might have ticked a lot of boxes with your fab Beetle card. Firstly, it's fun and different, secondly, I think it would be a great male card (always difficult to make) and thirdly, you've used punch art to make a card for grown ups. I love it :)
