Cars McQueen Shape Bday Card

Created this birthday card using Cricut cartridge Pixar Cars to make the shaped McQueen card by welding the shadow images together with Gypsy and the layers. There are small detail pieces to the images on the cartridge and so mine is a first attempt and not perfect but will be appreciated by the receiver nonetheless. Added glossy accents to the eyes & headlights. Stamped a sentiment with 2 different stamps on inside of card.
