Vacation Time

For My Sheri Crafts design team post, please click here or scroll down!

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

Today I am sharing a card that was inspired by the Papercraft Star challenge. The challenge is to use a map on your project. I found the map paper in my scrap box and decided to go with a travel theme. Some of my family are enjoying a week at the beach...another fun vacation before school starts again.
Card is 6 1/2 x 5" cut from a blue Colorbok cardstock. All papers are from the scrap box! I have been trying to use more scrap papers, but I still have a big stash!
Cricut Cartridges:
Pack Your Bags: Page 23 Car is cut 2.25".
Page 22 Phrase "Are we there yet?" is cut 1.75".
It is quite a long drive from my area to the beach and I know my grandkids asked that question several times! I just had to use it for the inside of the card.
Phrases - Page 51 Phrase "Vacation Time" is cut 2.25".
Sweethearts- Page 74 White mat on inside of the card is cut 3.75. This was a cut that was not needed for a previous project.

Other supplies include yellow buttons from my stash on the wheels. Both the car and the phrase are pop-dotted for added dimension. VersaMagic Gingerbread inking.
