Desert Sunset (Route 66)
Double Trouble Challenge #31 is calling for a theme of "Vacation with Embossing" for this new challenge running from Monday, June 17, 2019 through Sunday, June 30, 2019. Our partner, Pile It On #155, is asking for a "Transportation/Vacation" theme so this is my card, featuring the twist of using a road sign. US Route 66 is a historic highway that started in Chicago and ended in Los Angeles. There was even a song written about it.
The background was sponged with sunset colors then embossed with clouds. The mountains were die cut. A landscape die was used to provide the desert floor with a horizon. The travel trailer, fire and cacti were stamped, colored with Copic Alcohol Markers, fussy cut and adhered. The road sign was a digital download. The mountains and road sign were adhered with foam tape for dimension. The inside was decorated with another digital download of a similar sign with the words, "Get Your Kicks on Route 66."
We welcome you to participate with us at Double Trouble #31 and our partner, Pile It On #155. Visit the blogs to find out all about these challenges. You could win a prize!

I LOVE everything about this card right down to the banners on the trailer. I've always wanted to travel Route 66. Maybe now that we have a trailer, I'll get there!ReplyDelete
Thank you, Tracey! Rte. 66 runs from Chicago to Los Angeles. There are areas where the old route is still visible, especially across Northern New Mexico and Arizona.Delete
Great card Mel...super cute, love the Route 66 sign. See you changed plan, I was hoping to see how you finished off the other card too.ReplyDelete
Thank you, Sue. The other card is still in limbo. I like the start of it, just need to figure out the finish.Delete
Love this card, Melanie, since the tiny trailer is a lot like ours and it reminds me of a fun trip we once took to the desert to spend a night in it when we first got it!ReplyDelete
Thank you, Jean! I have never camped in the desert but have camped at the Florida beaches many times.Delete
That is way too cute! Love your colors and your design. Your little camper is awesome! :)ReplyDelete
This little camper would be just right for your family! Thank you for commenting, Amy.Delete
