Bon Voyage

Hey there! I'm not going anywhere, but I just made this card and while selecting the papers, I was ready to travel again, so I made a bon voyage card. This card was super easy to create. I'm still not super comfortable with using a lot of patterned paper, but I'm working on it. I had fun creating this card! This card makes me want to travel to Fiji, Tahiti, or maybe even Bora Bora!

Thanks for your visit and have a great day!

  1. Trim patterned paper in half then cut fit an A2 card front.
  2. Ink around patterned paper edges.
  3. Add rose trim and ruffle up.
  4. Stamp sentiments, cut out, ink the edges and adhere to patterned paper.
  5. Adhere patterned paper to an A2 card base.

I discovered your site through Papertrey Ink. I love your use of ribbons and embellishments..so clever and it's great how you have the instructions and materials all listed. I also appreciate your little tips.

Oh -- I have that paper and have been having trouble knowing how to use any of it in the pack, wondering why I bought it in the first place as it's quite far from my usual style. So, thanks for the idea. It may just get me jumpstarted! Lovely card!
