I gave this card to my sister, Angela, for Valentine’s Day, but it could have been for any occasion. I’m lost without her year round!
Angela is my travel buddy. She keeps me from wandering away from the tour group, getting left behind with my nose is in a sketchbook, and forgetting to eat because I’m too busy taking in all the sights. Even when we aren’t traveling, she gives me perspective on life.
My favorite part of this card is the three dimensional, upside down map.
This card was created with:
Going Global Stamp Set (c) Stampin’ Up
Going Places Designer Series Paper (c) Stampin’ Up
Dear Heart Stamp Set (c) Stampin’ Up <– This is a retired set, but it is still available to order on the Stampin’ Up website (as of 2/24/2016). With the thin tipped Basic Black marker I added another arm to each alligator so they could point the way and hold a map, respectively.
Confetti Hearts Border Punch (c) Stampin’ Up
Forest Embossing Folder (c) Darice <– This could also be cute with the Softly Falling or World Traveler Embossing Folders (c) Stampin’ Up.
Very Vanilla Cardstock (c) Stampin’ Up <– Or a near equivalent ivory cardstock.
Old Olive, Mossy Meadow, Delightful Dijon, Basic Black Stampin’ Write Markers (c) Stampin’ Up
Stampin’ Dimensionals (c) Stampin’ Up
Here is my color palate for this card.
I’d like to give a special thanks to Marie Shaughnessy from www.MarieStamps.com. Her color chart is amazingly helpful for translating Stampin’ Up colors to RGB and hex color values for my Bewitching Color Combinations, like the one above. Click the thumbnail below to visit her page.
