Car Congrats

This is the perfect card for teenager that just got their license. I was having fun here. Making me slanted road, stitching the road lines and making my own text dp for the bg.

You can find more inspiration on THE ALLEY WAY STAMPS BLOG.

I used the following stamp sets:


I made my background by combining the five words. I placed them side by side the way I wanted on scrap paper then pressed my acrylic block to them to pick them up. I tried them on scrap paper first to see if I liked it. Then I just stamped my whole background alternating the positing at each row.

The car I stamped three times. The first I cut out the whole car. Second I cut out the whole car and the windows. Third just the tires. I colored, sponged, added brads for the tires and put dimensional glaze over the whole thing then popped up.

Lisa, I love the stamp sets you used! That little green car is sure going down a steep hill. Must be in the mountains. You made your card so fun by putting the words as the background. Thanks for sharing. Edwina Brown
