Road Trip

Happy Friday everyone!  It's Jeanne today and my cards uses some great dies from the new "Just for Guys" release.  (Although these really aren't just for guys - this would make a great card for anyone going on a road trip!)
The card features the letters from the Retro Alphabet set.  I cut them all out of white cardstock to begin.
Some of the backgrounds were similar but the nice  thing about this set is that you can mix and match the backgrounds for the letters!
I colored the backgrounds and letters using Copic markers to match the colors in the patterned paper I was planning to use.
Next I cut the background pieces from the Route 66 Road Signs set using vanilla cardstock.  I left these uncolored.
I cut a panel slightly smaller than 4/14 x 5 1/2 inches.
I adhered all my elements to the panel with some hanging off.  I used scissors to trim these and then glued the panel to a top fold A2 card base.
I love the retro look of these dies.  Great for men (or women)!
