It’s time for Throwback Thursday at Paptrey Ink and today I will be bringing back the Enjoy the Ride set. This set features this classic car that can be either colored or just stamped with the solid image filler. I love to color, so that’s exactly what I did in today’s project!
When I was in high school, the Volkswagen beetle was like “the car” to have. Though I didn’t even drive during high school, the parking lot was always filled with these cars. I colored my image in red, and decided to stamp the license plate with ‘college bound’. I couldn’t find my die cut, so I actually fussy cut the image out, but there are coordinating dies for this image.
For the background, I reached for the Cover Plate: Angles Die. I die cut it once over white card stock, and another over a piece that I blended with red, yellow, and green inks. I wanted to use those colors to represent the traffic light colors, in a way hinting that the car is zooming off to college! I then inlaid a few of the ink blended pieces into my white angles frame.
I reached for the ‘you did it!’ sentiment that I heat embossed in white over black cardstock and fussy cut this one out as well. I adhered the car and the sentiment with foam tape.
Hope you enjoy today’s post with a little old and a little new. It’s always fun to bring back old sets and see how they can pair with some of our newer ones in a brand new way. Thanks for joining me today, and hope to see you next time!
