Bon Voyage Cards

A warm hello to all you wonderful crafters.  Christmas is fast approaching and here in Dubai most are leaving on vacation to spend the festivities with family and friends back home. I thought a most appropriate time to share with you my bon voyage cards I created using World Traveler papers by Carta Bella.  I used the same paper collection to create a Travel Journal (please click on the words to see the post).

These papers are so great to work with; they are thick and the colours are deep and rich and to me, quite suitable for masculine cards too.


For the first card I layered 3 different papers, fussy cut the stamps, hot air balloon and the compass images from various paper within the collection. I used vintage photo ink and distressed all the paper edges with the Tim Holtz paper distresser.

The frame and Bon Voyage sticker is also from the collection.  My 1 inch circle punch was perfect to cut the compass images!!

The second card has a black cardstock base and I layered different papers.  The well traveled guy chipboard piece is from the collection.  

The red dotted banner is on black cardstock that slides under the coiled twine flower; it opens up to reveal a tag and a die cut from the collection - both places  for an additional or special message

Inside the card I layered cardstock and created banners.  Lovely big space to write a long message.

Hope I inspired you to create bon voyage cards AND some masculine card with this awesome papers.  Do take photographs of your creations and post them on our Facebook page.

Happy crafting...Janine
