Hi everyone! My brother retired at the beginning of this year. Over the years he has traveled to many far away places such as Ireland, Italy, China, etc. So for his birthday, I decided to make a card representing some of his adventures.
I began with preparing my card base in GKD Blue Denim card stock. I then layered it with GKD Pure Luxury white card stock and, before removing the card stock from the die, I sponged around the edges with Memento Summer Sky ink. Next, I created a frame in silver card stock using a die from Spellbinders 6x6 Matting Basics A. I put this aside in order to work on my focal panel.
The globe was created in silver card stock using Impression Obsession's Globe Set die. The colored map portion of the globe was computer generated, sized and adhered to the globe to give it the realistic look. The filmstrip was made in black mirror card stock with a Marianne die.The photos in the film strip were computer generated and adhered to the film strip to represent some of the places my brother had traveled to. The sentiment was personally composed and die cut with a Memory Box Pinpoint Rectangles die. The images and sentiment were then adhered to my prepared base card with dimensionals. My project was complete.
Thank you for stopping by to visit. I hope you enjoyed this post and will come back for more card making.
