Before I had baby Orren and had time for things like craft I made this card for some friends who were travelling to America to live and work for 6 months. I was really pleased with it as were my friends so thought I would share it with you.
I began by creating a background with brown parcel paper. I placed small strips of masking tape in places on the packing paper to make the front of the card look like a parcel. Then I cut out three circles from vintage maps to give them impression of globes. Next I stuck on some stamps I had saves, some from America and one British one. Then I cut out the words "Bon Voyage" from brown paper, written with black pen and stuck them on top. Finally I stitched a line in black embroidery thread on the sewing machine with a drawing of an aeroplane at the end of it so it looked like the plane was flying round the globes (or something like that!) I liked it anyway and thought it had a bit of a vintage feel to it.
What do you think?
