Cars Movie Birthday Card

One of my nephews recently turned 3 and I wanted to make a special birthday card for him.  He's obsessed with the movie Cars, so I looked on pinterest to see what others had done and found these cards.

I made a #3 template with scrap paper, then cut out the top loop until the underpass from one sheet of black cardstock, then the underpass and the bottom of the 3 with a second piece.  I glued the pieces under the underpass section so the join wouldn't show.  I used a white gel pen to add the dotted line and used pop dots to keep the upper track separate.

For the card base I scored a checkerboard and coloured half the squares with a grey pencil crayon.  The car is a sticker.
