#4 - Here We GO!

Here we GO!  Artfully Sent Cricut Cartridge Week continues with a card that is quite different from the first three cards in that it's not exactly quick, but I DO love it a LOT!

I wanted to make a Sleeve card for today, so after looking at all the great choices in the Artfully Sent booklet, I decided on the pennant design.  All month I've been wanting to make a camper from the ice cream truck in the June Stamp of the Month "Ice Cream Dream", so I paired them together for this fun card!  You might recognize the little passenger in the camper!  He's a celebrity in our CTMH family known as Sticky Boy!  

RV there yet Sticky Boy?

The clouds appear upside down or are they?  The cloud scene design is meant to be turned the opposite direction, but I wanted the clouds to be at the top when inside the sleeve.

The card slides easily out of the sleeve.

Backside of the Glacier cloud piece backed with White Daisy cardstock.

I cut the Sleeve card shape from Kraft cardstock at 6" just as the booklet suggests.  The pullout cloud piece from the Scene image is cut at 5 1/2" using Glacier cardstock and backed it with White Daisy cardstock.  This not only made the clouds white, but created a white space to add the sentiment.  The double thickness of this piece makes it easier to slide in and out of the pocket.

The patterned pennants were cut from Jackson and Chalk It Up B&T papers.  I needed to cut the Sleeve out of three different patterns to get the variety of pennants I wanted.

The ice cream truck turned "camper", was stamped and cut out of B&T papers and pieced together for the groovy little RV.  Love the Gold Sequins wheels!  

I popped up the camper, window canopy, and sentiment "Here We Go" (from a Jackson zip strip) with a little 3-D Foam Tape.
