Handmade Explore Card


This is a great masculine card. I started 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 piece of Bazzill Basic Brown cardstock that I folded to make an A2 size card. Then I layered on 4″ x 5″ piece of map designer paper from Tim Holtz Crowed Attic Paper stack.  Then I took a  5 x 1 1/2 inch piece of dark blue card stock and used my Regal Flourishes folder to emboss it. Then I layered in on toward the bottom of the card. I attached small brads in each of the corner of the map. I cut the world at 3 1/2 inches from the Give Hoot Cartridge. I cut the water and continents from ancestry.com paper. I used recollections card stock for the shadow and ribbon and  distressed them my Tim Holtz Distress ink. After the world was assembled, I attached it with some pop dots. For the sentiment I used a small frame from the ancesty.com embossed frames. I cut a piece of dark red paper to fit in the frame. Before I stamped my sentiment, I distressed the red cardstock with Tim Holtz Distress Inks. I used my Martha Stewart Clear Stamps Sans Serif Typeface to spell out explore. Then I attached the frame with some pop dots. Hope you enjoy this card.

The scallop was cut from create a critter and the paper is from Garden Party Stack. I pop doted up the blue circle and the koala. Hope you enjoy this card.

One of many frogs that visit my pond

 

 

I always think of frogs as french, so I thought a French sentiment was perfect to go along with this adorable frog die cut. I used Colorbok Texture card stock in dark green for the  lily pad. I don’t really like this card stock, because the edges are white. I bought a paper stack of textured Colorbok from Walmart for five dollars, and I am trying to use up. Hope this gives you some ideas for your cards.

I made this card for my mom. She loves maps, and I though a map was a very fitting back drop for a whale. I burned the edges with a lighter. I used glossy accents on the whale spout. I think the rest is self explanatory. I hope this helps give you ideas. Post links to your project in the comments.
