Heartfelt -A Tropical Road Trip

Good morning!

This week we are debuting the new Young at Heart Collection...It is so cute with cars, trucks and planes.
I decided to go the tropical "route" for my travel card today.  The piece of paper I used on the last page with the truck under the Palm tree was my inspiration for the entire card.

Brown Fun Foam used to raise the Journey letters.

Instructions:  6" X 6" Tunnel Card.  I decided to get my tropical supplies out for this card because of the panel I used for the last page, a truck under a palm Tree. Sometimes a piece of paper is the inspiration that gets me going and that was definitely the case with this card.  I started out by putting the tunnel card together and then finding, measuring and cutting paper for each side of each page. I cut my paper to size and then place the right size circle in the hole and draw a line with pencil, take the paper out, line up the die and cut.  I will cut both panels needing the same size hole at one time.   Sponge the edges of each panel with Distress Inks (in this case I sponged each page a little darker shade of the paper color). Cut the circle frames for each hole with a coordinating card stock using the circle dies large and small sets.  Sponged a darker shade on the inside of the circle frame.  I then started stamping and die cutting all the embellishments I wanted to use, either sponged color on or used my Copics to color, formed all the flowers and put them together to have everything ready for building my "book" tunnel card.  For the front and back of my book, I glued ribbon on before adding my paper so that there would be a little tie to hold the book closed.  To decorate I always start with the cover and work my way down.  I thought the beautiful birds would be perfect for my theme, so placed them with foam tape and added greenery and flowers around them.  My "Journey" was stamped and die cut twice so that I could raise the letters. I used brown Fun Foam between the layers to elevate.   My next page has the fun classic truck colored in a light coral.  I added the "best wishes" banner to the back of the truck, some decorative corners, and Hibiscus as well as land for the truck to travel over.  Page 2 features the classic convertible, a palm tree, flamingo, plumeria and decorative pockets.  Page 3 features the VW Bug, palm tree, flamingo, hibiscus, plumeria, and decorative window topper (from Winter's eve) and the last page features my inspiration panel with the truck and palm tree (the center circle is popped up with white Fun Foam),  it also has the decorative pockets, plumeria, and decorative window topper.  All the small flowers, I used throughout the little book as fillers, are from the Wildwood Florals.

 Thanks for visiting today!

        Psalm 8:3-4

When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers,
The moon and the stars, which You have ordained, 

What is man that You are mindful of him...

Psalm 139:13-16
13 For You formed my inward parts;
You covered me in my mother’s womb.
14 I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made;[b]
Marvelous are Your works,
And that my soul knows very well.
15 My frame was not hidden from You,
When I was made in secret,
And skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.
16 Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed.
And in Your book they all were written,
The days fashioned for me,
When as yet there were none of them.
