Dreaming about Vacation

Friday, 25 September 2020

 Well, we all are, aren't we? ;)

Anyhow, a real vacation is not happening for me anytime sooner, so I thought why not try and mimic that experience and feeling of going on a holiday. Yeah, card making does that trick for me ;)

I made this holiday-themed card to paly along a couple of my favorite challenges using dies from Sizzix.

I started by masking the upper third area of my card base and sponging distress inks to create a night sky. The white splatters were added using white acrylic paint and a brush. For making that curvy landscape panel edge, I used Sizzix Thinlits Die- Build a Landscape (#662839). Those cute little tress are from the same die set. I like the simplicity of those trees. Perfect for CAS cards!

The car is from Sizzix Thinlits die set-- Summertime (#662547). The die cuts were sponged using distress inks too.

The sentiment from MFT was aligned on the stamping tool such that it aligns along the edge. After stamping the sentiment, I still felt that something was missing. Therefore, I stamped that curvy line along with the tiny heart form Neat and Tangled stamp set (Thank you, Pooja for gifting this to me) to add interest.

I hope you like the card.
