Happy Vacay

8/7/22 Top 3 at Country View Challenges!

Hi friends! A very Happy Saturday to you and I hope you’re doing something fun this weekend – indoors and out of this heat! We typically don’t feel the heat (or the cold) quite as bad because we don’t have much humidity out here, but we’re sure feeling it this summer. I have a fun travel-themed card to share today that I created for the July 2022 – Travel challenge over at Country View Challenges. I grabbed my Spellbinders Around The World Kit of the Month from August 2020 and made this fun card with lots of layers! I guess subconsciously I’m wishing we could travel to a cooler spot right now – and the temps in New York, London and Paris are a little lower than they are here, lol!

I used papers, dies, stamps, die cut shapes, chipboard embellishments, sequins and foam squares from the kit. I cut a standard A2 size top-folding card base from 110# Solar White cardstock and adhered coordinating patterned paper layer and strips. I die cut a globe from CutCardStock Basis Black, Basis Green and Stardream Metallic Vista cardstock, assembled it and adhered it to the card front. I tucked several skyscraper die cut shapes from the kit around the top edge of the globe

I adhered more die cut shapes to the card front, popping most of them up on foam squares for dimension. I added a few chipboard embellishments and sequins which completed the card front.

I cut the inside panel from 80# Solar White cardstock and embellished it with a leftover strip of patterned paper used on the front along with narrow strips of CutCardStock Basis Green and Stardream Metallic Vista cardstock. Using the stamp set in the kit, I stamped the sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and layered the panel on CutCardStock Basis Black cardstock.

And one more peek… such a fun card with lots of dimension!
