I couldn’t resist heading to the store and finding Hot Wheels to match the new Love Emergency stamps for my projects today. Then I thought it would be fun to find different ways to package them. Let’s start with that awesome police car!
I started these by stamping all of the images from Love Emergency and colored them to go with the cars that I had bought. It was a fun way to decide my color palette and not necessarily color everything realistic like I tend to lean toward.
For the police card, I die cut a red rectangle from Framework and folded it in half. I masked off one half and inked up the other half with the gingham stencil and white ink. Then I cut another rectangle from black and used the land borders die to create a ground. I glued them together and then added my police car with foam squares. I stamped and heat embossed a sentiment on a flag from Frames & Flags and trimmed off the top. I adhered that and attached my topper to a cellophane bag filled with some chocolates and that awesome Hot Wheels police car!
The super cool fire truck topper has the same idea but uses dies from Frames & Flags for the topper and a heat embossed sentiment on one of the hearts from the new Heart Frames set. The fire truck is popped up with foam squares for a little dimension.
Last, but not least, I moved on to the ambulance and decided to create a tag for this treat bag. I used the Fancy Edge Tag and cut 2 – one from white and one from blue. Then I inked the middle of the white one with red and popped me ambulance on it with foam squares. I stamped my sentiment on the smallest ticket shape in the Framework set and added the heart image to the side of it. I attached it with foam tape and threaded some ribbon through the holes of both tag pieces. I tied it to my back with some yellow baker’s twine and this bag is done too!
