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”.


Places You'll Go, Crumb Cake card stock

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:
