Cards Inspriration with Alicia!

Good morning Quick Quotes readers!  Alicia here today with a neat card inspired by the New Joy Ride papers at the Quick Quotes store!  
So many vacation photos were swimming through my head when I saw this new paper!  However, I just purchased this die and thought this was a great way to sample the Joy Ride collection.  

I feel the key to a good die cut card is to layer and layer and then layer again!
  • I made 4 cuts total. First I cut the base out of  Joy Ride 100 paper,
  • Then I cut another full card out of Joy Ride 400 paper.
  • I didn't need the entire card cut for the other pieces so I used scraps of kraft and black card stock to cut just the suitcase and the handle and then fussy cut.

  • Finally, I began to add embellishments.
  • Die cut flowers out of the reverse side of Joy Ride 100 paper and some scraps of the same paper to cover the chip board buckle from Frames Bag o Chips.  
  • I did a little shaping on the flowers, covered the edges of the Joy Ride 400 paper layer with some rough braided twine and added the paper covered buckle.
  • I cut down the sentiment and layered it on some Joy Ride 200 paper. It really reminds me of how I am counting down the days until vacation in April!
