Field Trip Friday

Hey friends!  Happy Friday & for those in the US,
Happy Labor Day Weekend!

Today Tara Orr has made an amazing card with some fun techniques on it.

Tara said, "For this assignment I decided to do a card - which I have done more of lately, but my true comfort zone is still 12x12 layouts, In addition, I decided to do a masculine card vs. the very romantic, frilly and feminine cards that I normally create."

I'm here to say... rather Tara is in her comfort zone or not, she ooolways
ROCKS it out of the park!!!

Route 66

 I love that Tara used the Vintage Dot as the base of her card.
Do you know how many Vintage Dot colors we carry??
20. Yup. 20. 
That means there is sure to be one that will match whatever project you're working on.

So.... I asked Tara if the stamp border was a border punch?
She said, "no, not a stamp punch. Just used my mini circle punch from Stampin' Up! and stamped with half of it all around the edge to create that postage stamp look..."

How cool is that? And sooo perfect with the Detour collection. 
Bo Bunny Supplies:
Dimensional Stickers: Detour
Rub Ons: Detour
Patterned Paper: Quote, Stripe, Arrow, Destination/Detour
Cardstock: Vintage Chiffron 

And just so I'm not alone, for those of you who know it...
I'm going out singing Nat King Cole's 
♪ ♫ When you make that California trip... ♫
♪ Get your kicks on route 66 ♫ ♪

Now it can be stuck in your head too!!
Have a good weekend!
