I made this card for one of our sons as he was heading back to school after the holiday break. While he was looking forward to getting back to school he seemed a bit anxious about the work ahead. I know he can handle anything that comes his way and thought this card might provide some encouragment as he tackled new classes and continued new experiences.
I used my Stampin' Up! Blendabilities to color in the water on the World Map background stamp. Stampers Note: I purchased this stamp as a Clear Mount set. However, I recently purchased the Something Lacy background stamp in Wood and I will never buy a background stamp in anything but Wood again. While the Clear Mount might cost less and take less space, the usability of the stamp in Wood Mount is so much better it means I will use it more.
The sentiment from the new Adventure Awaits Photopolymer stamp set was stamped in Versamark on Midnight Muse (Retired*) card stock and then Embossed with Stampin' Silver Emboss Powder. *You can easily substitute Night of Navy card stock.
The Adventure Awaits stamps are large and have great encouraging sentiments in fabulous fonts. I love this new set.
Today I am heading to Orlando for the Stampin' Up! Leadership Conference. I am looking forward to being with other SU demonstrators to share ideas and get inspired. I hope I inspired you today.
