Project 194: An alternative travel Christmas card

I had a bit of a splurge at Michael's on Black Friday this year and this amazing Tim Holtz travel stamp pack ended up in my trolley. I did a bit of a road trip with my husband and inlaws this year out West, going (briefly) on Route 66 while we were travelling through Arizona. My inlaws love nostalgic Americana and so I decided to make them an alternative Christmas card to remember our trip.

It just happens to fit in perfectly with I Love ProMarkers' challenge this week as well!

I stamped the image and added small touches of color using Berry Red and Lush Green ProMarkers. I then punched the border in metallic green paper using a Martha Stewart scallop punch.

There are some glitter glue details on the car and then a shiny gold candi in the corner. I added a Jolee's santa hat sticker to give it an extra little wink.

Simple layout and greeting free- I wanted the stamp to do all the talking here!
