Bon Voyage Card

My friend was leaving this week for her first European trip, so I wanted to mark this special event for her and her husband with a little card…

Here is the card:



Card size:  5 ½ x 5 ½”

For the top of the card, I purchased some images on the Silhouette website and cut them with my Silhouette Cameo.  I have had the Silhouette for a few years and never used it.  So I am trying to make better use of it now.

I bought the Colisee and the “Bon voyage”.  After cutting them, I matted the Bon Voyage on Black card stock and cut around the words.  I inked the “Colisee with Distress ink (Vintage Photo).

The patterned paper is from a Die Cut with a View pad and the airplanes are from a Stampin’Up set and inked in Memento gray flannel ink.


The inside of the card:



Surprise, it’s a Pop Up.  I love to see the look on the card recipient’s face when they open it….

The pop up was cut with a Sizzix Pop N Cut die by Karen Burniston (suitcase) and matching accessory set.

The borders were cut with Spellbinders Nestabilities border dies S5-180 Curved Borders One.

The “Bonnes Vacances” was done on the computer.  The polka dots border and die are My favorite things MFT02 Textile in Label.

The compass and suitcase were stamped with a Stampin’Up set.


Thanks for your visit.

Merci de votre visite.
