Attach the camper and car with foam adhesive. 0615Group4-5d Stay tuned during this month's blog hop to learn how to make this beautiful 3-part bow (in an efficient way). 0615Group4-5c 6/26/15 Update: here is the video! Outline the "road trip" letters with the Metallic Gold Marker featured in this month's Lite kit. 0615Group4-5b CARD 60615Group6 We had enough White paper available to add a writing panel on the inside of each Brown card base. That makes me a happy camper when I want to write my greeting inside with a standard black pen. CARDS 7-80615Group7-8 Attach the natural elements to the card panels with CS Bookbinding Glue. 0615Group7-8b This stamped sentiment is from the UM Greetings -- one of my favorites for a birthday wish. 0615Group7-8e CARDS 9-100615Group9-10 Ink the large collage image with several colors, starting with the lighter shades first to avoid inkpad contamination. Tie a small bow with the jute fiber and adhere the leaf with bookbinding glue. 0615Group9-10c CARDS 11-140615Group11-14 I like the versatility of this paper-pieced card. Consult the instructions for more detail, but you can duplicate this technique with any stamped sentiment. The "go take a hike" image came from the Borders & Backgrounds sheet. It matches the size of the "tent" image, which made it a perfect fit for the spot. (Stamp on the plain side of the printed panel.) 0615Group11-14c The tent sentiment is on a separate panel and was attached with foam adhesive. 0615Group11-14b Have a creative road trip! (I hope it's not too "in tents".) Tricia
