Let's Go . . . Explore!

It is the Centennial of our National Park System this year!  Yes, we have been enjoying the foresight of those who planned the park system for 100 years.  If you are lucky enough to have a fourth grader living in your home like I do, your pass to the National Park System is free.  Imagine Crafts theme for July is summer time, which to me means camping and seeing the natural wonder of the landscape around us.  I have many childhood memories of camping all over the Western US including the great state of Alaska.  It is those memories that inspired the scene behind the map of the United States in this three dimensional card.  The card was photographed in bright sunlight to highlight the shiny trailer die cut so the sentiment and map is shadowed into the background for a fun colored layered effect.

A full tutorial can be found over at Imagine Crafts so you can duplicate this fun card for yourself.
