Happy Journey

Happy Journey

If I were a scrapbooker, I would probably create scrapbooks of my travels. This new stamp set and paper from Stampin’ Up! would have been perfect for them. Since I only make cards (but loved the images so much that I bought the set anyway), I decided to make a “happy journey” card with my newest purchase.

This 4-1/4″ square card features several of the images in the set in the colors of the matching DSP: Night of Navy, Garden Green, and Pumpkin Pie. I did some 3D stamping on the word “travel” to make it stand out against the Garden Green card stock.

For the inside of the card, I cut two slits in the Kraft card stock (before adhering it to the card) to create the base for the popped-up suitcases. I just used my scissors, but if you want to be more precise you could use a paper cutter or a hobby blade (as shown in the Pop-Up Card tutorial on SCS).

Happy Journey - Inside

I stamped the images in the background with VersaMark and used a stamp positioner to create the sentiment with Night of Navy ink.

Thanks for stopping by!
