Let's Take a Ride from Sandra - LO & 2 cards

Hello Bloggers,

We continue with the Roadster papers today with a LO & 2 cards from Sandra:

Let’s take a Ride
'I loved this paper so much I found it hard to cover any of it so I began this layout by using cardstock with stamping, and then embossing in gold a script stamp.  To add a bit more dimension I then stamped with a background crackle stamp in brown to blend with the brown cogs on the top right.  The centres of some cogs were stamped in the centre with gold ink.
I fussy cut the car and compass on the bottom half of the page so I could slip my vintage photo behind these elements.'

This is one of the other papers in The Top Hat & Automobile Collection:

Meg’s Garden Product:

Other Products Used:
Spellbinders Sprightly Sprockets Die
Stamp & Timber Brown Ink'

'I just had to make a couple of cards with the rest of the paper in this range.  I had the extra piece (4x12" strip) that’s supplied with Meg’s Garden papers and some of the top half of the 12X12 sheet used on the layout.'

'I also used some cogs and the leafy die on the ‘Best Wishes’ card and I chose some of the beautiful flowers for the second one.'

Another marvellous use of the papers, the strip that comes with the 12x12" paper & the pieces left over after the 1st project is done - well done Sandra. Love all the elements  of the 3 projects.

Bye for now
