Instructions: To view the inside pages click here. 6" X 6" Tunnel Card. I decided to get my tropical supplies out for this card because of the panel I used for the last page, a truck under a palm Tree. Sometimes a piece of paper is the inspiration that gets me going and that was definitely the case with this card. I started out by putting the tunnel card together and then finding, measuring and cutting paper for each side of each page. I cut my paper to size and then place the right size circle in the hole and draw a line with pencil, take the paper out, line up the die and cut. I will cut both panels needing the same size hole at one time. Sponge the edges of each panel with Distress Inks (in this case I sponged each page a little darker shade of the paper color).

Die cut the circle frames for each hole with a coordinating card stock using the circle dies large and small sets. Sponge a darker shade on the inside of the circle frame. I then started stamping and die cutting all the embellishments I wanted to use, either sponged color on or used my Copics to color, formed all the flowers and put them together to have everything ready for building my "book" tunnel card. 

For the front and back of my book, I glued ribbon on before adding my paper so that there would be a little tie to hold the book closed. To decorate I always start with the cover and work my way down. I thought the beautiful birds would be perfect for my theme, so placed them with foam tape and added greenery and flowers around them. My "Journey" was stamped and die cut twice so that I could raise the letters. I used brown Fun Foam between the layers to elevate. My next page has the fun classic truck colored in a light coral. I added the "best wishes" banner to the back of the truck, some decorative corners, and Hibiscus as well as land for the truck to travel over.

Page 2 features the classic convertible, a palm tree, flamingo, plumeria and decorative pockets. Page 3 features the VW Bug, palm tree, flamingo, hibiscus, plumeria, and decorative window topper (from Winter's eve) and the last page features my inspiration panel with the truck and palm tree (the center circle is popped up with white Fun Foam),  it also has the decorative pockets, plumeria, and decorative window topper.  All the small flowers, I used throughout the little book as fillers, are from the Wildwood Florals.
