Bon Voyage Card for World Card Making Day

Did you know that  TODAY SATURDAY OCT. 1  is WORLD CARD MAKING DAY?    I hope you all have time to make a card today!

I was asked to make a special card for  a friend’s mother who will be travelling to Vancouver B.C soon.  The request was for a card that could hold two gift cards and be themed as a “Bon Voyage”  card.   I decided I needed some luggage for this, so I drew  a stack of three vintage style cases and colored them digitally in some  fun “retro” colors.

I made a 5.5 inch square card base and cut the ‘Vancouver’ , and the and the  tag using the Cricut and Plantin Schoolbook cartridge.  The note paper panel with ‘Au Revoir” stamped on it ,  is <image 44 s cut at 3″> from the Graphically Speaking cartridge.  The sentiments are from Technique Tuesday’s All Aboard stamp set.

Inside is a pop up  with two gift card holder slots:

I’ll be giving the card to my friend today so I’ll find out if he likes it!
