The name is Mater - like Tuh-Mater

My latest card order called for Mater from Cars to be immortalized in Copics and adorned on Bazzill and cork.

A work colleague asked me if I could make it for her nephew.  I absolutely love Mater and was so happy to sit and colour him up and gloss his windscreen to make it all shiny!  I used some leather cord for this towing cord and added a black bazzill hook at the end.

I crumpled the green bazzill a little and then sanded the ridges to give it a banged up look - cause Mater is a little like that - dents, rust and a little wear and tear.  I then used some zig-zag ribbon that looks a little like tyre tracks to me to finish off the card.  I know it's a boys card, but I don't think the ribbon is out of place.
Here's a little closeup of the layers of paper, the brads I added to the corners of the image and the leather cord.  Boy wasn't that fun to work with along with an extremely inexact hot glue gun.  I think I got glue everywhere!!!  Plus I was working on the corn while I was waiting for the windscreen to dry and stuck my hand in it twice - I'm so impatient!!  Inside the card is a strip of the brown with dots paper which I have scalloped, and the sentiment "Happy Birthday" in the Cars font.
