PCCCS148 -- Adventure Bound

It's getting close to Father's Day and, of course, Graduation has been happening for some and is coming very soon for others.  What a great opportunity to use the Traveler stamp set with some masculine flair!  I thought the sketch for the Paper Craft Crew Challenge lent itself to that idea perfectly.

Paper Craft Crew Card Sketch 148. #stampinup #papercraftcrew

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.
