Quick Quotes Joy Ride Suitcase Pop Up card

Good morning Quick Quotes readers!  Alicia here today with a neat card inspired by the New Joy Ride papers at the Quick Quotes store!  So many vacation photos were swimming through my head when I saw this new paper!  However, I just purchased this die and thought this was a great way to sample the Joy Ride collection.  I feel the key to a good die cut card is to layer and layer and then layer again!  I made 4 cuts total.  First I cut the base out of  Joy Ride 100 paper, then I cut another full card out of Joy Ride 400 paper.  I didn't need the entire card cut for the other pieces so I used scraps of kraft and black card stock to cut just the suitcase and the handle and then fussy cut.

Finally, I began to add embellishments.  Die cut flowers out of the reverse side of Joy Ride 100 paper and some scraps of the same paper to cover the chip board buckle from Frames Bag o Chips.  I did a little shaping on the flowers, covered the edges of the Joy Ride 400 paper layer with some rough braided twine and added the paper covered buckle.  I cut down the sentiment and layered it on some Joy Ride 200 paper.  It really reminds me of how I am counting down the days until vacation in April!
