Seize the Birthday #219


The current topping over at the Seize the Birthday challenge is Travel.

I will admit that this one had me a bit stumped.  I associate travel cards more with retirement than birthdays but maybe that's just me.  I have always made it a point to incorporate their prompts into my cards so after lots of rifling through my stash here's where the prompt led me.

I'm not a camper nor a glamper but if I owned one of these cuties,
 I'd want it to be in turquoise and red.  

I started with the camper die set, die cutting it in white and coloring each piece in with Copics.  I then decided I needed something to pull it and found this old woody station wagon die which turned out to be perfect.  I also die cut these pieces out in white and Copic colored them.  I just purchased this awesome background die which was again the perfect back drop element.  I stamped a simple birthday sentiment, adhered the panel to a white card base and finished it off with my customary clear droplets. I really love it when things just come together nicely.

  1. Travel had me stumped for a bit too. But then I thought, If I can make a floral, or a cat, or a ? themed bday card, why not travel? :D What a great combination of background and focal dies to create this fun travel theme! Thanks for linking up with us at Seize the Birthday!

  2. You rocked this - despite being stumped! I'm glad you rose to the challenge. All of your elements go perfectly together...such a fun & fabulous card. Thanks for playing along with my challenge at Seize the Birthday.

  4. Your turquoise & red camper is so cute and so is the red station wagon pulling it. You did a great job with this "Topping" option Julie. Thanks so much for sharing with us at Seize the Birthday.
