We had a party for her last Thursday so I made her a pop-up Bon Voyage card.
The outside of the card is the Tim Holtz Alterations Vintage Valise die. I cut the die from patterned Tim Holtz grunge board and the smaller pieces from Tim Holtz grunge paper. The pieces are painted with Adirondack Paint Dabbers in Sandal, Espresso and Pitch Black. I distressed the edges of the valise with Vintage Photo distress ink. I fashioned a latch from extra die pieces to help hold the card closed. I added brads from the Idealogy Mini Fasteners and then hammered the tops to distress them. The tag was cut from the Sizzix Framelits Tickets set using Nomad paper from the Bazzill Wayfarer collection. The sentiment stamp is from Inkadinkado.
As an afterthought, I stamped the small arrow from Stampendous in red on a separate piece of paper, cut it out and positioned it so that it points to Italy!
She loved the card as well as the cookie cake that I made for her. Thankfully I have a day job and it doesn't involve making cookie cakes (obviously!)!!
Thanks for stopping by!!
