2015-05-15; backpacking the trails


On Mother’s Day weekend I went on a backpacking day trip with my daughter. We had a really nice day for it and I enjoyed it immensely. I had mentioned to a stamping friend that I was going on this trip and she sent me some 3-d stickers with a camping theme. I used one of them to add to this card.

I started out by sponging the background, adding stamped trees, a couple of rocks and grass (Stampin Up’s Scenery set). Next I added Cricut die cut trees and flowering bushes from the cartridge Serenade. I had one leftover cloud from when I cut the pieces for THIS card. It is from the cartridge Small Talk frames and tags.

I had to show the 3-d backpack sticker. I set it down on the path that I had created which in real life is exactly where mine went when I needed a break.

I took lots of pictures of flowering trees and bushes on my hike so I recreated one using a sprig that I cut from the Serenade cartridge. I added pink hole punches for the flower bits and then topped it with glitter glue. That glue makes the faux flowers glow in real life.

and one last look at today’s card before you go on about your day.

Thanks to my stamping friend who so generously sent me the camping stickers. It’s a perfect addition to my hiking themed card.
