In conjunction with Squigglefly's team Holley'S Hobbyists
This was an easy challenge from Holley and her cohorts........"add some flair to your border with a punch, torn edge, deco scissors or ??? surprise me! This flair can be to the edges around your image, the opening edge of your card or ALL the edges, you choose."
I chose to use one of my new decorative die cuts altho it's very difficult to get all the little pieces out........even using some of the tried and true hints, such as waxed paper between the die and the image, additional layers in the cuttlebug, etc. But eventually I got it the way I wanted it.
The card is 5x7 - and I slit a decorative piece of dp to create some triangular sides and center and go from there. The camper van is meant to look like the 'hippy bus/homes' of the 60s! The image comes to you with a very usable side without applying all these icons and such.
I added a bit of choking muffler smoke because we all know those vans were not very eco-friendly! I just used a finger sponge and a bit of dark chocolate ink pad.
I'm sending this to a friend who is moving - she and I have always said we will never move, but alas those words do have to be changed at some time in our life. I wish her the best - it's a wise move.
I hope you like this card - lmk of any changes you would've made. I'd love to hear.
