It's time again for the Create with Connie and Mary Summer Collection 2013 Saturday challenge…this week it is a FUN sketch for you to try!


Here's my take on it…I let the I Am Me Designer Paper do most of the work on this card with a greeting for the focal image!  I love this luggage print and the wonderful color combination!  I figured the greeting was very apt for the travel theme!  lol!



Here are the details:

  1. The base is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, folded in half to make the card.
  2. I cut a 3 x 5 1/2 piece of I Am Me Designer Paper and added 1/2 x 5 1/2 strips of Real Red at the top and bottom of it (good way to save on cardstock, and I used up some of my scraps!) then adhered it to the front of the card.
  3. I inked up the greeting from Really Good Greetings with my Real Red, Basic Gray and Daffodil Delight Stampin' Write Markers, then stamped on Whisper White.  I punched it out with the Extra Large Oval punch.
  4. That was adhered to a small Decor Label Framelit of Real Red with Stampin' Dimensionals.
  5. I adhered that element to a 1 1/2 x 3 piece of Basic Gray cardstock, embossed with the Square Lattice folder for some texture, cut with flag ends, then placed on front.
  6. For  little bling, I tied some White Bakers Twine into a bow on my Daffodil Delight button and placed it on front with a Mini Glue Dot.

Love how fun this card is…too bad my husband doesn't travel…I could give it to him.  Hmmm, maybe he should give it to ME when I go to Convention!  lol!
