Car Decal

The challenge this week at Decorate to Celebrate is 4th of July but we have been invited to add our decorations for any celebration.  I created a car decal to decorate our vehicles for Canada Day (July 1).  I created this decal with my Gypsy using Car Decals (for the "Proud to be"), Pooh Font Set (for "Canadian") and Create a Critter (for the leaves).  I also added little leaves in the middle of the As.  Once I created the cut file, this was easy to cut out multiple times for the vehicles.

And here's a close up.  (The second, darker image is actually a shadow.)  I cut the decal with Cricut vinyl.

Don't forget about the Canada Day Blog Hop this Friday!  Everybody is invited - Canadians and friends of Canadians!  Tara and Jacqueline have found a number of sponsors and there are lots of great prizes up for grabs!

Very Cool Kate! I actually like the shadow of the word Canadian under the vinyl... It gives it a neat effect even though you weren't trying too! LOL

This is great Kate! Thanks for the reminder of why I bought this cart! I told my husband as I put my bid on Ebay, that I wanted to make a car decal and he joked that he wanted it to say "I heart my husband" above the "I heart my Cricut"! I promised him to be on the lookout for "I Heart My Wife" decal on his truck! I still haven't done it but now that I remember, he better watch out! Of course I'm not going to tell him about it. He'll find out when the guys at work get a good laugh...hehe!

Hi there, I am visiting from the Decorate to Celebrate challenge. I love your car decal. It inspires me to try cutting vinyl on my expression.
Congratulations on being chosen as one of the guest designers.

Wow....I LOVE this idea! Very creative :) I cut a lot of vinyl lettering for my hubby and sons toys all the time but never thought about my vehicle. Hmmmm....this could be interesting! Thanks for the idea!!

Kate this is so cute! I haven't tried working with vinyl yet, but now I feel inspired to! :) I just became a follower (I've been looking at your blog for a while now, not sure why I didn't do this before)... :)
