What came to mind was travelling. And so I pulled out the pages from the beautiful Typeset Specialty Designer Paper which had the map illustrations on them and cut a piece for one side of my card. For the smaller strip along the right side I chose not to use Designer Paper but, instead, used a piece of Very Vanilla upon which I stamped images of the ship and the locomotive from the Traveler stamp set. Then I used the new Boho Chic embossing folder on the stamped piece, following which I lightly sponged it with black ink.
A traveller needs a suitcase and so for the showcase piece, I stamped the suitcase on Very Vanilla, sponged the edges of the cardstock using black ink, and added touches of Real Red to portions of the suitcase. The Real Red repeats in the three stars to the left of the stamped piece as well as in the ribbon and in the banners.
I love the simplicity of the colours of this card. It was such fun to create! Of course I also loved the chance to use my Traveler stamp set again.
