Hello there! Happy Tuesday to you! It's time for another fun challenge over at Hand Stamped Sentiments and this week it's ALL about "Summer Fun"! This week, I was given the assignment of a "Bon Voyage" card. Well, LAST WEEK I made a card for a beach vacation so I wanted to think outside of the box for this one. Because NOT everyone takes a tropical vacation to get away...I dug out a set that hasn't seen much ink in the past few months. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you "Travelling Tote-ally Tess". Could she be headed to Paris, Milan or maybe a SU! Convention?? Hmmm....
Either way, Tess is "packin'" and she is serious about her get-away. Like me, she tends to actually pack MUCH more then she really needs, but she is always prepared for ANY occasion! I went with the premise that one of those stylish totes was filled with shoes...simply because every time we vacation, my husband has something to say about the amount of footwear I pack. Ha ha!I used the new Pocketful of Posies DSP and Paisley Petals DSP for this one. I also incorporated one of my *favorite* (not really) techniques: "fussy cutting". But all the patterns added to the jet-setting-style! I snipped the handles on the totes to make it look like Tess was actually carrying them. She REALLY needs some rolling luggage for her next vacation....don't you think??
I scrunched up some Baja Breeze Seam Binding and added some scalloped layers to the card to compliment Tess' totes. The pearls were the finishing touch. This card could also work for a birthday with a gift card tucked inside.
