Bon Voyage - Enjoy The Journey

Good evening  to my followers, friends and family, bon voyage/travel cards are not something we make very often and it is great to get out those arty stamps and go overboard, or just keep it clean and simple with a few die cuts when making them.

Papermilldirect special offer light grey and 300gsm white silk cardstock was used to create these two cards.  The light grey cardstock stamps beautifully and cuts easily in the die cutter, the white silk is ideal for card blanks, a lovely weighty card. 

I cut a piece of light grey card 14cm x 14cm and stamped the elements from the Artful Voyage stamp set using cornflower blue ink, the cruise liner was masked before stamping the text.  The compass was stamped onto light grey, ocean blue and daffodil yellow cardstock and fussy cut for layering over the compass on the card.  The stateroom part of the stamp was stamped onto ocean blue cardstock with black ink and layered onto the stamped image to give the contrast.  Lastly the bon voyage sentiment was stamped in black over the cruise liner.

My second card is clean and simple with lots of white space, it uses papermilldirect special offer white silk cardstock for the card blank, light grey and ocean blue cardstock for the die cut words and arrow embellishment.

Materials I used:
