Cricut Simple Pop-Up RV Card with CTMH Wanderful

Here's a card I made with Cricuts new Simple Pop-Up Card Cartridge.

There are so many cute cards on this cartridge - this RV cut was so fun to make.

The outer liner of the card has the "Life Is An Adventure" Sentiment included - all ready for the Explore Air to Print.   
I used CTMH Wanderful B&T Cardstock for the liner.  

I chose the lightest pattern since I needed the Sentiment to show up on the front.  
I decorated the front with one of the Zip Strips that comes with the Wanderful 12x12 cardstock.
I added a piece of Flaxen Extra-Thick Twine along the bottom edge of the Zip Strip with Liquid Glass and used a few Coral Reef Sequins in the bottom corner.  

I used CTMH Gold Metallic Marker in my Cricut Explore to write the "Life Is An Adventure" Sentiment.  This was the first time trying these markers and I was very happy with how well they wrote with the Explore.  

The inside of the card has a fun 3-D effect.  
The door on the RV is scored along the edge so it can open and there is a full back on the RV.  

The back looks as good as the front.  The inner liner was cut from CTMH Honey Cardstock.

I attached a piece of CTMH Thistle Cardstock under the "Onward" cut then carefully added my ATG to the bottom of the card.   I adhered the bottom first - carefully lining it up, then I made sure it was still folded flat and put a bit of ATG on the back of the RV then closed the card base so it would stick to the back of the RV.
