season’s greetings

Happy Friday, friends! I hope you have a great day and a great weekend with something fun planned! Our new challenge is live over at Merry Little Christmas Challenge Blog and I’m super excited to share my DT inspiration project for MLCCB #39 – October Anything Christmas Goes! I created a pair of adorable cards that are almost identical – the only difference is what’s on top of the little car! I just had to use both of those elements! Some more older Lawn Fawn stamps and dies that I absolutely love!

I created two standard A2 size top-fold card bases from Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White cardstock and rounded the lower right corner on each. I stamped the car twice and both of the elements on a scrap of Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock, colored them with alcohol markers and cut them with the coordinating dies. I created the background on each card base with a strip of Eyelet Outlet Road Washi Tape and a Memory Box Cityscape cut from CutCardStock Dolphin cardstock. I stamped the exhaust hearts on the washi tape in Jet Black StazOn, adhered the elements to the top of each car, and adhered the cars to the road on dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment beneath the road and added a single iridescent gemstone on each.

I stamped the sentiment in black ink and added a narrow red cardstock strip down the left side for a little interest. The inside is the same on both cards, and I used the Stampingbella gnome sentiments stamp set again… funny how the gnome sentiments are coming in so handy for non-gnome cards, lol!

And one more peek at the pair… totally loving how these turned out! They are so stinkin’ cute I can’t stand it!
