My first Just Because Cards card!

Hi, everyone,
Thanks for stopping by my blog today! This card is my first from the new "Just Because Cards" cartridge. I modified the Cricut cut just a bit because it better suited my card. Here's the cool thing! See that map behind the pickup truck?? While I was at the 99 cents Only store the other day, I found these HUGE Thomas Guide map books with literally hundreds of double-sided map pages for 99 cents!!! I distressed this one with Tim Holtz Distress ink, wet it, crumpled it, then dried it with my heat gun. I'm going to have so much fun with these maps!!! The truck and word art were cut at 7". Here's a tip about this cartridge. The word art and shapes are calibrated so you cut them at the same size. NOT THE STICKER!!! I left my size at 7" and cut a HUGE sticker! So, I changed the size for that cut to 2". It is inside the card, which I didn't show because I don't want to give away who the recipient of this card is! Oh, and the faux stitching on the word art was done with a silver glitter gel pen.
Thanks for stopping by today!
