Happy Trails

A friend of mine requested an anniversary card for her parents. The parents enjoy traveling together, mostly by car. This is the card I created for her,

Inside of card


Size:  Horizontal top fold A2 card

Extra Details:  I began this card by creating my frame. I used the stitched rectangle dies from Lawn Fawn’s Scalloped Box Card Pop Up. I cute them from two panels of white card stock and two panels of Kraft card stock. I stamped one layer of the Kraft card stock with Versa Mark ink and a wood grain backdrop. I glued all of the frames together and set them aside to dry.

I used the stitched rectangles from one of the white panels to stamp my scenes on.  Anything that needed to be colored in, I used Prismacolor pencils on. Using my frame as a guide, I adhered the panels to a white card base. I also adhered the frames.

While everything was drying, I stamped the cars and banner on a separate piece of white card stock. Again, I used Prismacolor pencils to color them in. I fussy cut them out right on the black line. I painted the edges black to hide any cutting errors. I added the cars to my scenes using foam dots.

I added another sentiment to the inside of the card. I had a small car left over, so I adhered that also. Overall, I really like this card.
