Goodbye & Good Luck!

Hi everyone,

It’s challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. This week Amber Hillman continues to issue the challenges.

Apparently Amber's oldest daughter heads off to college on the 15th... a whole 8 1/2 hrs away from them. So let's make a card saying goodbye. Can be a sympathy card or a safe trip/farewell card. Something that has to do with saying goodbye. 

I recently purchased this cute A Random Fan Travel Bug Stamp and I knew I just had to use this for today's challenge.

Of course as you can see I created a pop up card using the Lot's of Pops Pop Up die set designed byKaren Burniston for Elizabeth Crafts Designs.

To create the road I used one of the edges from the Outdoor Edges die set die cutting on side of my card first and then the other side. Then I drew the white lines down the middle using a white pen.

Along the top edge of my card I used the Paper Smooches Quotables Die and added a sentiment which I thought would be appropriate for a College Goodbye card or similar.

For the front of my card I computer generated a greeting .... oops! can you see the typo???? Fortunately this card isn't going to anyone at this stage, but as I only discovered the typo when I started writing up my blog post I am not changing it right now.

This is such a precious card, Frances! I love your fabulous pop up design for these sensational images!

I'm seeing my oldest granddaughter behind that wheel as she is leaving for college 300 miles away next Friday!

That little car is just the cutest - and the open road in front of it is a wonderful use of the card format.
