Snowman Trip card

This card was inspired by the theme "Transportation" over at Twisted Thursday at The Outlawz. It's my first card as a member of their DT! I'm very excited to work with such a great group of talented, supportive ladies.
This digi stamp and sentiment came from a special fundraising set by From the Heart Stamps and included the colored version of this stamp (which I'm using for this card). It's such a fun digi with the snowman wearing driving goggles and the car packed with skis and gifts! I imported the set to my Silhouette Design Studio software and sized everything up the way I wanted it for the card then printed it out. The "One Way" sign and the curvy road were also done with my Silhouette program.
For the card base, I used some travel paper and folded it so I could die cut a ticket card shape out of it with my Spellbinders Grand Large Labels dies. Then I used Spellbinders Large Labels for the image, mat and sentiment as well. The mat behind the digi stamp is from a Paris map book, and I had some travel-themed Washi tape to decorate the left edge. I used foam tape to pop up the sentiment, digi stamp and "One Way" sign.
