Our daughter, Emily, started her first year of teaching this year so I wanted to make her a card congratulating her and to give her encouragement. I wasn't sure how to make a bus card, so I went to Pinterest, Google, blogs and Facebook. I found this card and decided this is the one I would make. Now, a month later, I can't find it back. I am not sure who designed this card, but I am very appreciative of them sharing. If I find out, I will update this post to include their information.
You will need the following materials:
Daffodil Delight Card Stock #119683
cut at 6 1/2" x 8" score at 4"
- scraps for four 1 3/4" circles
Basic Black Card Stock #121045
- cut three 1" squares
- cut three 1/8" x 6 1/4" strips
- scraps for four 1 1/4" circles
- scraps for four 1/2" circles
Basic Gray Card Stock #121044
- scraps for four 3/4" circles
Real Red Card Stock #102482
- scraps for 1 hexagon (I used a retired punch)
Fold the yellow paper along the score line and measure the left hand top corner at 2" vertical and 1 3/4" horizontal. Cut that section out and round the corners with the Project Life Corner Punch.
To decorate the card I did it in the following order:
I used snail adhesive except for the stop sign I used a dimensional.
- adhere the black squares for the windows
- adhere the black strips (for these I used our Multipurpose Liquid Glue)
- sponge around the yellow circles with the Daffodil Delight ink
- adhere the yellow circles on the front of the card first, we will be putting wheels on the back of the card also. Then adhere the ones on the back lining them up with the front ones you have already adhered. Cut both, the front and back, to line up with the bottom of the card. Continue doing the front and then the back so everything lines up even.
- adhere the 1 1/4" black circles
- adhere the 3/4" gray circles
- adhere the 1/2" black circles
- adhere the red hexagon
For the stop sign I used a white gel pen and drew on the lines and wrote the word STOP.
You will notice by the size of the card, you will have to make your own envelope for this card. I used our envelope punch board to make mine.
This is a great card for a teacher, aide, bus driver or a student.
Thank you for stopping by today and have a wonderful week!
