And the next is this Journey embossing folder and stamp set from Sizzix.
|This is a bit of a tough to find set. You can find it on ebay for around $14.99.|
Here were the 10 cards that I made. Hopefully you find some inspiration along the way.
My first day were all cards with A2 dimensions (8.5" x 5.5")
1. In my first card I used the map and cut it using a banner die. I then used the globe stamp as is and placed it on black cardstock, using 3D adhesive dots to give it a little dimension.
5. I wanted to try something I never did before, so I made a three panel stand card. In truth, I think it's ugly. I don't get these cards as it's hard to personalize a card that doesn't really open. I put in some banners for some writing space. If you want to make this card, using A2 dimensions, score at lines: 2, 3 and 1/8th, 5 and 3/8th, and 6.5in. Thanks to Stamp of My Heart for the inspiration and design info.
7. The cardstock for the background here came from the Country Farm House Recollections collection. While I mainly used maps from the Maps, Texts & Ledgers, these three "tags" were created from the postcards. I then used a hole punch and twine to give it that country feel.
10. My final card was something completely different. While I mainly stuck with browns, it didn't dawn on me that I could stamp the globe on different color paper to make it look... well... like a globe, until the end of my second crafting day. For my final card, I used the flight path embossing folder on water blue card stock to make the globe pop. The background paper is from the C'est La Vie Recollections collection.
Have you ever used the Maps, Texts & Ledgers cardstock or something equivalent? Feel free to drop a comment below with your ideas or tell me which one of the cards were your favorite. Thanks for reading!
