Go See Do Travel Card

I made my first ever travel card!  I guess you're supposed to send travel cards to friends and family members who are taking a trip of a lifetime like going on a European adventure or a cruise to faraway places.  Is this right?  Well, I've never sent one, but now I have one I can send.

I saw this card in my mind's eye, so I had to make it!  It was made with a mix of products new, old and other...I'll explain.  

Using the Layered Letters Alphabet Stamp Set (new), Typeset Specialty Designer Series Paper (a timeless classic), Triangle Punch (retired), and the Sizzix Globe Thinlits Die (other), I created this Go See Do Travel Card.

I love the new Layered Letters Alphabet Stamp Set!  It's photopolymer, so you can see exactly where you are stamping.  And it's large, so you can make big statements.

Layered Letters Alphabet 

For this card, I aligned all of my letters* onto Block E and stamped my sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto White Vellum Cardstock.  I didn't want the ink to smear, so I heat set it using Black Stampin' Emboss Powder and my Heat Tool.

*There's only one of each letter in the set, so for the second "E" in "SEE" and the second "O" in "DO," I put the "E" and "O" onto Block B and completed the words that way.

I attached the vellum piece onto the card by using four Mini Glue Dots.  I hid them behind the two letters at the top of the card and the two at the bottom.  You can't see them at all!

This card makes me want to book my next vacation.  What about you?
