World Map Swap Card :-)
I wanted to share the card that I created for our recent swap at my upline’s quarterly meeting. I decided to create another card using the World Map – I just love this map image for masculine or feminine cards!
In My Digital Studio (MDS), open a blank 8.5 x 11 custom page and insert the World Map image along with the sentiment from Pedaling Past- I re-sized both images a bit …
Print out onto Whisper White cardstock and color the map using the AquaPainter™ with Crumb Cake, Pool Party and Gumball Green Classic Ink. Outline the continents using a Sahara Sand Stampin’ Write marker.
Cut the map image into three strips and mount onto a piece of Early Espresso cardstock.
Stamp the various grid and splatter stamps from Gorgeous Grunge using Baked Brown Sugar onto a piece of Pool Party cardstock, trim and mount onto a piece of Early Espresso cardstock.
Mount the map image onto the Pool Party background overlapping the center panel over the edges of the two side panels. Trim the sentiment and add the banner points using the Hexagon Punch, layer onto a piece of Early Espresso cardstock and add the Antique Brad. Adhere the sentiment across the map allowing a slight curve from the cardbase (I used Hot Glue to adhere this layer).
Using the Banner Punch, punch out several banners from the Epic Day This and That Designer Series Paper (DSP). Add a bit of distressing with the Gorgeous Grunge splatter stamp using Baked Brown Sugar Classic Ink.
Wrap a few strands of Natural Linen Thread and knot both end, add the banners to the thread “line” using a Hot Glue Gun and adhere the knotted ends to the top corner of the card front to finish off the card.
