Today I am playing planes, trains, and automobiles bright and early. I am leaving my house at 4:30 am to catch the train to the airport. I am jetting off to New Jersey to spend a few days at the Ranger office. I have been going through my photo files and finding some things that I have never blogged. I thought this super quick and simple card was a perfect one to share today. The design is great as a card but would also be fun on the cover of a mini album or travel journal.
Here is how to create this quick and simple card-
Brush a bit of Broken China and Vintage Photo Distress Inks on the edges of a pre-made white cardstock card. Cut a piece of kraft core cardstock to fit the front of the card. Use the Arrows Texture Fade to de-boss the image into the cardstock. Lightly brushed over the surface of the cardstock with an ink blending tool and Vintage Photo Distress Ink to accent the raised areas (the image background around the arrows). Adhere the embossed cardstock to the front of the card.
Die cut an Armor Shield from manila cardstock. Use an ink blending tool to apply Broken China Distress Ink to the die cut. Mist water onto your hand and flick it onto the inked die cut to create spots in the ink. Use a heat tool to dry the ink. Adhere the shield to the front of the card using adhesive foam.
Add a Remnant Rub sentiment to the label for a Label Tag. Place the label and the epoxy sticker in the label opening.
Adhere a scrap of cardstock to the back of the globe ephemera piece from the Tim Holtz Expedition Ephemera pack to add some strength to it.
Wrap the globe with a piece of Jute. Slip the Label Tag onto the jute and tie into a knot. Adhere the assembled piece to the front of the card with adhesive foam.
Die cut a large arrow from manila cardstock. Rub Vintage Photo Distress Ink directly from the pad onto the die cut arrow. Sprinkle clear embossing powder onto the arrow while the ink is still wet. Use a heat tool to melt the powder. Snip the arrow in half. Tuck the two ends of the arrow under the globe.
Ink, crinkle, sand, and tear two ephemera tickets. Slip them under the jute and adhere in place with adhesive.
That is all there is to it! Quick and easy and full of layers! I hope you will give it a try!
