Best of 2011

I’m going to share two different cards made using the same set, 1900 Cars set 285. For the travel card above, I used two different map papers, a new banner die set and labels 17  from Spellbinders. The antique autos on both cards were colored using a combination of  markers and Prismacolor pencils. For the Travel greeting, I used a bookplate die and bowed it slightly when I attached it.

On the Classic card below, I cut out the roadster and also an extra left side (facing the viewer) and layered it on the base image for a little extra dimension. The background scene was stamped, masked, sponged and then colored w/ markers. The white frame used a lg oval Spellbinders die and a dot border embossing folder which I used a stylus to hand emboss around the frame.  Both cards measure 5.5 x 4.25. The Travel and Classic cards w/ full instructions are also on the SNS website.
