College bound

I don't know anyone who is college bound this year, but I do have a fun card for the occassion. I love this bug image paired with road map patterned paper (I did a similar card with this combo a few posts back). The patterned piece I used today is also from October Afternoon, but from an earlier line called Road Map. I was originally going to use this car for a baby card, but then I decided the colors were more collegiate than baby so I stamped a new license plate, cut it out an adhered it on top of the old one. Then, I found some clear domed stickers in my stash that were the perfect size to fit over the headlights. Last, I adhered a piece of black scrap cardstock to a scrap of blue and then die cut it to the shape I wanted. It's easier to do it that way than to cut them seperately and try to line it up later. I made the white lines on the road with a stamp from Faux Ribbon and used dimensional adhesive to adhere my car to the die cut.

Papertrey Ink-stamps (enjoy the ride, faux ribbon), ribbon (pure poppy), cardstock (pure poppy, true black, white), button (true black), twine, ink (true black), die (car)

Stampin Up-ink (white), cardstock (baja breeze, soft sky)
