Adventure Awaits!

Happy New Year Cottage Cutz fans!  I hope your year has started off great!  Mine has been quite nice although having a day off in the middle of the week has thrown me off a bit.

For today's card, I'm using new dies from the Arctic Friends and 2019 Christmas release.
This card would be perfect for anyone who loves to camp or go on road trips.
To start, I cut all the pieces from various colors of cardstock and vellum, and assembled.  I used Distress Oxide inks in Vintage Photo to give some shading to the edges.
Next I cut two sets of mountains in two shades of gray using the Snowy Mountains dies.  To give variety, I used the snow portion in gray for one set.  I decided that if I were camping, it probably wouldn't be in the winter, so I wanted my mountains "snow free".  I used the DO ink on the edges here as well.
For the sky I used a cloud stencil and a light blue ink.
I created the grass by blending three colors of green ink.  After these were done I began assembling the card on a top folding A2 card base.
I first layered the cloud panel, then the grass and finally placed my mountains.  I cut off the over hanging edges of the mountains.
I placed washi tape that looks like a road about 3/4" from the bottom and adhered the word Adventure from the Camping Phrases die.
Using foam dots, I popped up the card and trailer.  I'm very pleased with how this card came out - it may be my husband's birthday card!  However that's not for a several months and I'll probably make him ten more cards by then!  ;)
