Instructions: Create a 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 inch card base. Cut a navy base layer at 5 1/4 x 5 1/4. Cut two designer layers from the Simply Classic paper collection. Sew white stitching around the edges of the designer paper that will be on top. My tension is off on the sewing and I left it that way to add to the rustic, distressed look. Distress the edges.
The rusted, well loved truck was stamped with the Simply Classic Cling Stamp set using Tuxedo Black Memento Dye Ink. I used X-Press It but you can use any white Copic compatible paper of your choice. I used the following color combo (Truck- B00, B21, B23, B29,YR20, YR23, YR26, E15, Sepia 0.03 multiliner, Greens/flowers - YG11, YG61, YG63, YG65, Tires/Crome - C0, C1, C3, C5, C7, Windows - B00, C0). Die cut the truck with the coordinating die. Cut 2 additional images from dark cardstock. Adhere with Designer Dries Clear Adhesive for strength. Adhere 3D Crystal Lacquer to the windows and allow to dry. Apply flower soft to the bed of the truck.
The slider path can be cut with a slider die, free hand, or with Fleur Border Basic die. I used the Fleur Border Basics. I positioned the die at a diagonal angle and only sandwiched the portion of the die I wanted to cut. The area that I did not want to cut extended off the edge of the cutting plates. I positioned it again to allow a 1/2 inch path and repeated the process. I drew some rocks around the path with a black Sharpie and shaded them with a black colored pencil. I extended the road on the adjacent page as shown.
Adhere the blue layer and plain designer paper on the front of the card base. Apply double dimensional foam circles to the layer with the slider path to the top of the designer paper on the left. Make sure to not put the dots too close to the slider path - you will want plenty of room for the sider to move. Adhere two stacked mini dots in between two nickels. Adhere to the back portion of the truck. Add another two stacked mini dots in between two nickels and attach to the front part of the truck. Applying the sliding coins to the front and back of the truck will allow it to slide but not spin in a 360 degrees. This will just allow it to move along the path you created. Adhere flower soft along the edges of the road.
Stamp, color and die cut five dogwood flowers from the Flowering Dogwood Set. Sponge the center with Lime Pastel Chalk Ink and sponge the tips with Berrylicious Ink. Stamp and die cut the green leaves from the Simply Classic Set. Color with Copic YG61, YG63 and YG65. Shape the flowers and and leaves with the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit. Adhere the stamen with Dries Clear Adhesive. Stamp and die cut the branches from the Winter's Eve Collection (Window Box Fillers). I trimmed the branches and used them for the dogwood tree branches. Adhere the leaves, branches and flowers at the bottom of the card.
The word "JOURNEY" was stamped with Versamark and Detail Black embossing powder. Heat set. The sentiment was die cut with the Simply classic Die. Adhere sentiment to the upper right corner of the card. And for the final touch, adhere a small wooden heart to the corner.
