See The World card - Perfect for Graduations! by designer Deborah Nolan

Hi, Deborah the Newbie welcoming you back to the Hampton Art blog! Today’s card is for anybody who falls in love with patterned paper but isn’t sure what to do with the extra “add-on” goodies. (You know, that sheet with all the punch out objects and such?) Or how about those fabulous sheets of journaling blocks? They’re not just for scrapbooking anymore!
I like these items because you can put together a nice card that says you care but which can be assembled in less than no time. (Let’s face it – we all care, but sometimes our schedules can only accommodate a five-minute masterpiece.)
Here’s a card for travelers - graduates, missionaries, folks who are relocating to a distant place for school or a job. I like the idea of surprising somebody with travel tickets in this “modest” card - bet they wouldn’t see that one coming!
This card can also work with gift certificates to a bookstore for the armchair traveller (just stamp “Read a Book!” with alphabet stamps on the inside of the card).

  1. Make card base for a 4.25” x 5.5” card.
  2. Cut 4” x 5.25” panel from striped patterned paper and adhere to card front.
  3. Cut out “See the World” journaling card, mount on red cardstock scrap, and adhere to patterned paper panel.
  4. Punch out airplane die and adhere to bottom of journaling card. (Adhere with foam dimensional tape if you want a little extra lift – no pun intended.
  5. Optional:  Stamp a sentiment on the inside of the card.
Thanks for stopping, and have a blessed day!
