My first card helps to celebrate a Bon Voyage. If you’re lucky enough to be going on a cruise, you should be celebrating. Me, I celebrated when my cruise was over! This was years ago and I shared the seas with Hurricane Gladys…never again will I cruise.
I created this card using a template I got from Paper Inspirations a long time ago and am finally using it. I used Baja Breeze, Crushed Curry, Pacific Point and Whisper White card stocks from Stampin’ Up. The digital patterned paper is part of the Coastal Kit from Nitwit Collections, my new favorite resource for digital products. The Bon Voyage ticket was made from a Good Luck card cut file purchased in the Silhouette Store…I shrunk it down to an actual ticket size and inserted the greeting using Atlantic Incline font, color matched to the Pacific Point.
The darling little anchor is from the Coastal Kit as well. The sentiment was typed using the Baskerville Old Face font color matched to the Pacific Point. I sponged the edges of the Whisper White with Baja Breeze for a bit of added dimension.
My next card was made with a Lori Whitlock cut file purchased in the Silhouette Store. I wanted to create a birthday card, so with a clever sentiment on the back, this would work perfectly for a sailing enthusiast.
Here’s the sentiment which appears on the back. I tried to come with something to play off the sailboat. Perhaps a little corny, but that’s the best I could muster.
Now I have a mini exploding box for you created with a cut file by Quietfire Designs through the Silhouette Store. Cute, but you have to be able to hand deliver this card!
And when you open it up, this is what you see. I placed the sentiment on the inside of the lid as there’s really nowhere else for it to go.
And finally, a shadow box card using Carina Gardner cut file purchased in the Silhouette store. I combined gold foil with card stock to create this card. The patterned paper is from the Coastal digital kit from NitWit Collections.
