Papertrey Ink Make It Monday Challenge #1: Go-To Sentiment Card

At the start of Papertrey Ink's fourth anniversary celebrations, Nichole Heady introduced Make It Mondays which included an inspirational video tutorial by Erin Lincoln. She inspired us to make a card using repeating sentiments and here's mine. I started by stamping a sentiment from Enjoy the Ride at the very bottom of the card base and cut out the olive and white mats. I stamped the flourish followed by sentiments from Masculine Motifs and Birthday Basics along the curves. Then I die cut the car, inked it and cut out the window. I mapped out where the stars would show through the window, stamped them and popped the car on with dimensionals.

Have you already played along or do you plan to? You have until Monday, February 14th to enter for a chance to win a $250 gift certificate!
