Traveller Birthday

Happy Thursday...just one more day till the weekend...woohoo!
Today I have another of the projects I had on offer at my Birthday Blitz card buffet last week.  It was inspired by a card I saw on pinterest designed by Bonnie Klass.

Masculine birthday card featuring the Open Sea and Traveller stamp sets with sentiment from Petite Pairs.
I simplified Bonnie's design a little bit, eliminating some of the paper piercing, and adding embossing to the background layer.  I used the Pretty Print TIEF (retired) to add texture to the Naturals Ivory card stock.  The globe image, from the Open Sea stamp set, is stamped in Early Espresso ink and die-cut using the Circles Framelits.  I added colour with a sponge dauber and Pool Party ink and then pierced a border using the Essentials Paper Piercing template and a piercing tool.  I layered it on a circle, also cut with the Circles Framelits from Early Espresso card stock.  The suitcase, from the Traveller stamp set, is stamped in Early Espresso and coloured with a sponge dauber and Crumb Cake ink.  It is punched using the 1-3/4" circle punch and layered on a 2" circle in Early Espresso.  The compass, which is from the Open Sea set, is heat embossed in gold, punched with the 1-1/4" circle punch and then layered of a 1-3/8" Early Espresso circle.

The sentiment, from the Petite Pairs stamp set, is heat embossed in gold and die-cut using the Banners Framelits.

Inside view with sentiment from the World of Dreams stamp set.
On the inside I stamped the globe image again using Early Espresso ink, stamping off twice to ensure a very faded image.  The sentiment, from the World of Dreams set, is stamped full-strength in Early Espresso ink.
Have a thrilling Thursday!!
