You can see all of the fun images in this stamp set. I wanted to make this a card that could be used for birthdays or even Father's Day, so I used my handy-dandy micro-tip scissors and cut off (yes, I cut my stamps) the word "SCENIC" from the image at the bottom right. I always cut at an angle so I can match it up again when I want to use the original sentiment on a project. This gave me the option of adding a different event on the front of the card. I found both the "Birthday" and "Father's Day" sentiments on different sets, but they worked great. We stamped the "Route" first and then fit the appropriate event stamp where it needed to be. This is such a great way to get extra mileage from your stamps!
It was fun to create the look of a highway by using Whisper cardstock and CTMH's
Chalk Marker to draw the lane lines. The car can now travel down the highway and stay on track!
For those who love the old VW vans, we had the option of using that image on the card front.
