Bon Voyage 2016

Angie and I had a very pleasant day at the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store and it was pretty busy too! Heather stopped by around 2:00 and I ran across the street with her to NY & Company so she could pick up a few things. After work I came home and watched a little TV, had tacos for dinner, made my card for today and watched some more TV. I don’t have any special plans for this evening so I may just watch a few movies before the ball drops. Sometimes a nice quiet evening at home is a good thing, even on New Year’s Eve! πŸ˜€

I had this image in my head of a map with planes on it so I pulled out my June My Monthly Hero Kit and made a quick card to bid farewell to 2016! The base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock with a piece of Kraft covering the front. My papers are from the DCWV Maps, Text & Ledgers 8×8 Paper Pad. I adhered them on angles with E-Z Runner and curled up some of the corners. The planes and suitcase are cut from Real Red, Galvanized Metallic, Bermuda Bay and Kraft. They are adhered to the card with 3M Foam Tape and E-Z Runner. My greeting is also from the June Kit and is heat embossed in Hero Arts Copper Embossing Powder onto a piece of 48lb Vellum and adhered to the card with Kool-Tak Clear Foam Tape. The June My Monthly Hero Kit is still one of my favorites and I do love a little map paper, especially when it depicts a place that I really want to go! I hope that you like my card for today! Thank you for checking in one last time in 2016! I wish all of you a very happy, healthy and crafty New Year! πŸ™‚

  1. Good morning, Justin. This is a really cute card to bring in the new year or for some friends who like to travel. Those DSPs are perfect for the colors of the planes you used. I love the copper embossed vellum. If tradition holds, my hubby will be in bed before the ball drops and I’ll watch to be sure it happens. lol May 2017 be a great year for all of us.
