My friend Michele is moving to California for a couple of months so I'm making her some "We've Moved" cards. I thought of this idea but had to play around with it a bit to get it to work. This looks cool in real life...used canvas background. Trees are double stamped with So Saffron and Not Quite Navy. I colored, cut and stuck the truck on the background. Next, I printed a little U.S. map on a transparency with an arrow from VA to CA and attached the transparency with mini brads. It came out just as I had envisioned!
