Just popping in to share a cute card I created for my parents...While they galavant all over the globe, I work, work, work and wish, wish whish. They've earned their exploration wings and play dates in retirement and I'm happy they are able to take the many adventures they do.
Many, many more adventures to come!
"An Adventure" (stamp and die bundle, stamp only) stamp. Since I enjoy fussy cutting, I cut the submarine myself instead of using a die. I colored the submarine using a few gray Copic markers and blue markers. I also overlaid some Liquitex Silver Metallic ink on the colored image. It's a fabulous translucent metallic ink that creates a soft shimmer over colored images.
I stamped the World Map background stamp onto Beach Ball Cardstock using Beach Ball Ink. Then, I punched some holes into vellum with various hole punches in my collection (3/4 circle, 1 inch circle, 1 1/4 inch circle, Punch Handle). I assembled the card in my favorite wonky layout design onto a whip cream cardstock base. To finish the card off, I added a bit of Beach Breeze and Whip Cream thread to the edge.
Medium Foam Squares really help give this card life! When creating a layered card like mine, I think it's important to use varying layers- and dimensions...to achieve the full AHHHHMAZING effect!
