BonJour Hello or Good Day
This card was created for Heart2Heart Challenges - Monday June 8, 2015 "Around the World - Maps." Since I had a stamp for the Eiffel Tower in Paris, I thought I could dream about a vacation trip to France and who knows maybe some day this dream may come true. I used Sentiment BonJour because it meant Hello or Good Day. I'm not sure how I will use this card in the future so if anyone has any ideas let me know.
Outside of Card: Found a free map on the internet and printed it on vellum and then adhered the vellum to Colonial White cardstock to appear aged. Stamped Eiffel Tower in Black, fussy-fussy-cut, used clear embossing powder and heat embossed and adhered with 3D Foam Tape. The lettering was stamped with Black Ink, adhered to black cardstock and raised with 3D Thin Foam Tape to background design paper. Sentiment was Text I created in Cricut Design Space, welded, cut and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. I won some black embellishments from Color Dare and used a few of the sequins and flairs on this card...was unsure how or when I would use them but fit right in with this card.
Inside of Card: Used some of the background design paper and stamped the Eiffel Tower on this paper, adhered to bottom right-hand side, and also added the postage stamp.
