Road Trip | Father's Day Card By Jessica Shier

Hello Ai Fans!

Today I'm sharing a fun card using the Road Trip set. I thought this would be fun to make a comic book style card where you fill in die cut shapes with stamps. 

I started with die cutting a panel of white cardstock using Art Impressions Square Double Stitch dies and a few rectangle dies. I made sure to check to see if the stamps would fit in the die cut pieces before cutting. I did use some of the dies twice to get the desired look.

On another Neenah 80lb cardstock panel I took the die cut piece and placed it over it, then traced the die cuts with a pencil. Now that I had a layout of where to stamp I began doing so with some black ink. A few of the stamps are a bit larger then the die cut areas I had mapped out for them. I used a post it note to mask off those overhangs so that the images would only be in their designated areas.

I started coloring all my images with Copic Markers, listed below. I stamped the car and the lunch box so that I could fussy cut those out. I wanted to layers those over the top to add some dimension. I also took one of the sentiments from the Road Trip set and heat embossed it 3 times on black cardstock using white embossing powder. Then trimmed off the excess paper so that there was a bubble effect around the sentiments.

I used my ATG to adhere the die cut panel over top of the copic colored images and attached the sentiments. For the inside I used a sentiment from the Art Impressions Hop Hop set, which says "Admit it life would be boring with out us"! I can easily add a die cut sentiment that says Happy Father's Day, to make this a fun and slightly out of the box Dad card. I know, when I was little, I often asked my dad, "Are we there yet?!" on family road trips! 

Copic Markers Used:
W6, W3, W1, W0
YG67, YG41, YG03, G14
E43, E35, E31
BG13, BG000, Y13

Happy Stamping!
