Instructions: The card size is 5 1/2" x 5 1/2". Die cut front of card base using the Cut Mat Create 2A die (make sure it's centered). I inked the edges using Rhubarb Stalk ink along with a dauber. Find the panel of your choice from the Young At Heart paper pad and die cut the center using the Cut Mat Create 2A die. Choose another designer paper for the background. I cut this at 5" x 5", and adhered on the inside of card.
Stamp two truck images and one leaf image in Archival Black ink on white cardstock and die cut with coordinating dies. Color the leaf with New Sprout ink and Bamboo Leaves ink. Color the two truck images with Canteloupe Peanut Brittle, New Sprout and Rounge inks. I also used the Dove Blender pen very lightly with black ink to add color to the chrome pieces on the truck. On the top truck image I trimmed off the wheels. Using an X-acto knife cut open the door. Adhere pieces of clear cardstock behind the windshield and the door window (to make it appear as if the window was partially rolled down).Gently shape truck using the flower shaping kit. Adhere both truck images together using foam dots and Dries Clear adhesive. Adhere to inside of card.
Stamp 5 journey signs and two puppy borders using Dark Brown ink on white cardstock and die cut. Trim out the puppy you've chosen to use. I colored both puppy images using Rich Cocoa and Potter's Clay ink. Shape with the flower shaping kit and adhere together using dries clear and foam squares as needed. Color two journey signs using Colorbox Dark Brown ink. Color remaining signs using Rhubarb stalk, lightly at the top and heavier at the bottom. Die cut the words and adhere the layers together to create dimension. Adhere die cut letters to sign and add brads. Cut apart leaves and arrange on the second layer of sign. Add twine to sign and adhere two signs together. Wrap twine around panel frame and adhere on the back. Adhere panel using 3D foam dots to card front.
Adhere as shown and add crystal glitter to the leaves, flowers and grass.
