Happy Notes - Moving Card #PP262 #FabFri70

We took a lovely walk up to the You Yangs today with the kids and I knew we would return after dark. So cheeky me took my card on the trip and while it was still daylight I took some photos.
A family member recently moved house so this card is going to be perfect for them.

Here's how I created it... (card measurements are detailed further down in this post!)
I stamped the backgound with Tip Top Taupe ink with the dot image from 'Work of Art' - love this!
Next I used my Stampin' Write Markers to colour the very cute and heavily loaded car image from 'Happy Notes' onto the white piece - the sentiment comes as part of the car image stamp and because I wanted a bit of space inbetween so I could add my lovely Pool Party cotton ribbon, I stamped them separately - coloured and stamped the car first, then cleaned my stamp, then coloured and stamped my sentiment further down the paper.

I bet you're asking what I used to create the cute corners? Well I'm excited to say that available soon in the Holiday Catalogue (Sept 1st 2015) you will see the 'Curvy Corner Punch'. 1 punch with 3 designs! I have used 2 here the scalloped edge and the double curve. The other design is a ribbon slide.

 Layer all the pieces together with dimensionals, add some ribbon and a cute button and we're done.!
 Here are the card measurements so you too can create this card:
  • Standard Australian C6 card base in Tip Top Taupe Cardstock (half A4 sheet)
  • Mint Macaron Frame - 3" x 5"
  • Pool Party Frame -  2-1/2" x 4-1/2"
  • Whisper White Panel - 2" x 3-1/2"
 My card is inspired by 2 challenges, here are the inspirational pics from Pals Paper Arts 262 & Fab Friday 70

    1. Thank you Brian for such a sweet comment, I love adding layers and layers! This was a great challenge to take part in as usually I don't place my focal piece on the right hand side of the card, I actually tried to open the card from the other side a couple times! Lol :)
