You Mean the World to Me --- PCCCS128

Welcome to this week's Paper Craft Crew Challenge.  The sketch this week is a lot of fun.  It includes newsprint but, as usual, you can interpret that your own way.

Paper Craft Crew Card Sketch 128 #stampinup #papercraftcrew #papercrafts #cardchallenge

I chose to use the map print from the Typeset Specialty Designer Series paper.  My intention was to use the Traveler stamp set and so the map print was the perfect choice.  Since the designer paper is Basic Black and Very Vanilla, that's the direction I took with my colours.   I used Basic Black as my base cardstock and then used the map print for the lower portion of the card and Very Vanilla embossed with the Tiny Triangles embossing folder for the upper portion.  

For the small rectangle I first stamped the Very Vanilla with the print stamp from the Open Sea stamp set using Smoky Slate ink.  Then I stamped over that with the suitcase stamp from the Traveler set using Memento ink.  I used my Blendabilities to colour the image, using only the Smoky Slate and the darkest of the Daffodil Delight set.  Then I stamped the world globe on a separate piece of Very Vanilla and fussy-cut it out.  Then I used my Blendabilities to colour it before attaching it over the suitcase using my Dimensionals.  I used a skinny Basic Black mat for the piece and, after adding a tied Hellow Honey ribbon, attached the piece using Dimensionals.  My final touch was three dots cut from Hello Honey cardstock using the Cupcake Builder punch, which I topped with Crystal Effects after gluing them in place on the bottom left of my card.
