what? it’s not a box?
Next month, I’m hoping to make a trip home to Tucson in order to see my family and attend my high school reunion. Whether or not I make it will depend on how much work I can get done in the next few weeks. Once I pay for my airline ticket, I’m committed, so decision time is here.
Last night, I thought about how much I want to go home, how much I need to be there just for a few days of peace under the turquoise skies, staring at the mountain ranges that surround the city. I made a card to send a friend who is lucky enough to live there. Here it is.
This was entirely cut by hand, no Cricut involved.
Base: 8 1/2″ by 5 1/2″ piece of cardstock (Staples 110 lb beige cover stock)
Orange layer (Cansons Expressions Papercraft in Bittersweet)
Ribbon (The Ribbon Collection 5/8″ wide in Sheer Ivory)
Brown layer (DCWV Metallic Stack in Brass)
Beige layer (more of the same cardstock as the base)
Saddle digistamp I made from a graphic I found on the Net
Rivets (Best Occasions Metal Dots in matte gold)
I used my Xyron to make each layer stick to the next one, except for the orange layer that I used double stick tape on.
If you look closely around the edge of the panel with the digistamp, you might see the double embossed frame I did with my Scor Pal.
Oh, how I want to go home..
