Race through your card making like Solomon Hauser, a 5-year-old automobile enthusiast from Perry, New York, who made these tracks with paint-dipped toy cars. The "coupe" de grace on his card? A sweet chocolate car, available at party and candy stores and through online retailers such as CandyWarehouse (candywarehouse.com).
Cover your work area with newspaper. Use the pencil and the ruler to divide the card stock into 4 equal sections.
Pour some black paint onto the paper plate. Drive the toy truck through the paint a few times to coat the wheels well.
Roll the truck over the card stock to make tracks, taking care to leave some room in each section for a message.
Let the paint dry, then cut the card stock into 4 pieces and use the marker to write a note on each one.
Attach the chocolate cars with the double-sided tape.
I never "tire" of your friendship
To a wheely good friend
Valentine, you make my heart race!
