I absolutely love to travel! And I bought this stamp set to use with that in mind. I have to confess that this is the first time I have actually used it. Don’t you just hate that? Now that I have inked it up, I am in love. Talking about quick and easy!! Wow. A few stamps and you have a really cute card. And the stamp set is: “Places You’ll Go”.
You really cannot tell from the picture, but the globe is layered. It gives the front just a little more definition. I wanted this to be a sweet card and I do like it. Isn’t it nice to have a card that uses only one stamp set. Sometimes it is difficult to do that!
The base is Crumb Cake card stock cut to 4 1/2 X 11, scored at 5 1/2 and then the front folded under. This made for a great way to add ribbon and it not be wrapped on the inside of the card. I cut the ribbon, taped the two ends down on the back side of the crumb cake, and then took a short piece and just tied a not around the ribbon across the top. Easy Peasy!!
The Real Red layer is 3/4 X 4 3/8, and the Very Vanilla layer is 3 5/8 X 4 1/4. I like the smaller amount of red showing as opposed to the normal 1/4″ difference in layers. Remember that you will need a smaller than normal layer of Very Vanilla for the inside of the card. You do not want to see it around the edges of the red from the front. I used 3 1/2 X 4 for the inside.
Here are the few items required for this card:
