Did you know we announced the winners of the Flip Flop Notepads Blog Candy over on Create with Connie and Mary? Make sure to check it out prior to Friday, May 14th at Noon or we will choose another winner!
The Clean and SImple Challenge over on Stampin' Connection calls for a non-standard sized card and my card fits. I also haven't played Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge in a LONG time! I liked her sketch today and decided it would work perfectly with Stampin' Up!'s Sentimental Journey stamp set and Travel Journey Designer Paper! I wanted to keep this as a simple, demonstratable card. And one that didn't use the collage elements that this set is perfect for. I think each of the stamps in this set could easily be substituted for the little car stamp that I used.
I started with a base of 6×6 Night of Navy cardstock, folded in half for the base 3 x 6 card. I added the diagonal stripe pattern from Stampin' Up!'s Travel Journey Designer Paper and layered it on Garden Green cardstock. I wrapped the 1" Double Stitched Bashful Blue Ribbon around from the back, knotted it with Linen Thread and secured to the front. I stamped Dear Dad from Stampin' Up!'s Holiday Blitz Stamp Set in the lower right cover of the Pumpkin Pie cardstock. I added three 1/4 circles in Garden Green, Night of Navy and Bashful Blue cardstock.
Finally, I stamped the car from Sentimental Journey in Night of Navy Classic Ink on Whisper White and punched with the 1 3/4 Circle Punch. I added a Bashful Blue 2" Circle cut with the Circle #2 Die and Big Shot behind it. I think it made a great masculine card!
