The card is A2 in size. My first step was to create the car. I think the hardest part of this card was deciding what color to make the car! I cut all the car pieces from various colors of cardstock, then I used a pink marker to color in the heart on the license plate.
After assembling the car I decided it needed a windshield since I was not using the honeymooners inside. To do this, I cut a piece of acetate roughly the size I needed, placed it over the back of the car, then drew a cut line with a sharpie.
I adhered it to the car by using snail adhesive on the back of the car and laying the acetate on that.
I cut a rectangle from black cardstock using the second largest rectangle from the Nested Wacky Stitched Rectangle set. To get the map the perfect size for centering, I drew a line using the inside of the rectangle as my template. And by using the rectangle as a frame, I was able to pick just what I wanted showing on the map. Wouldn't it be great to choose a map of the destination for someone going on a trip? Or the place you visited with a friend?
I wanted some interest in the background, so I stamped a tone-on-tone wood background on a panel the same size as the front and sponged the edges for a worn look.
I created the compass using various colors of cardstock and then I assembled the card. The map panel and word are adhered directly to the card. The car and compass are put on with dimensional foam dots for some depth.
