Honda Element Paper Pieced Card

A few days ago Peg Fiskateer #3675 posted a Honda Element card that she made on the Fiskateer Message Board. I thought that she did a great job and I was inspired to try one myself.

I sketched out the design myself as there was no template available for this type of card. After sketching the card out in a rough draft, I copied it over to white cardstock and placed the top along a fold so that it would open like a card. Then it was just a matter of paper piecing the black, silver and red on the card and adding the details.

My son is a Mechanic at a Honda Dealership and when I showed him the card, he guess right off that it was a Honda Element. I thought that he could give this card to his boss for Christmas.
