Off to a New Adventure!

Happy Friday from the Colour Crazy Challenge Design Team and our sponsor this week, Twinkle Lane Designs!  I hope you are doing well and enjoying your summer.  

Although it feels like summer just arrived, fall is coming fast! With that thought in mind, I decided to make a card of encouragement especially designed for kids headed off to college, or someone moving to a new city or maybe a new job. 

I've used Twinkle Lane's New Car Digi Stamp along with a standard city background image. 

After printing and coloring the car with my Copic markers, I fussy cut it out and set it to the side. I printed and colored the background building, sized to about 4" x 5".  I used Pink & Main's Stitched Rectangle Die for this part.  

The card base is 5" x 6" and cut from brown cardstock.  Next I added the plaid matting, cutting it 1/8" smaller than the card base.   I  secured the card to the background piece, just leaving enough at the bottom to make the shadow lines. For this card, I wanted as much depth as possible. An extra way to achieve a little more is to add foam dots at the top of the image and then glue the base down.  You really can't tell that I did that in the front facing photo, but if you'd never tried that you might want to. 

Next I took the image piece to my Misti and stamped the sentiment 'You Got This!' with VersaFine black ink.  Because the car is raised (another layer), you'll find when you stamp you will sometimes get a 'white space' right at the edge where the top piece meets the bottom.  Simply take a black markers and fill in this slight open space to complete the letters. Then it's ready to be secured to the card base to complete the design. With the card base being brown, I did go back and add the white cardstock journal box on the inside for a clean writing area. 

Be sure to check out all the Design Team images on the Colour Crazy Challenge Blog and add yours in too.
