Joyous adventure

Hope everyone is having a great weekend so far! This is going to be a quick post today.

This was a simple card.
I had some map scrapbook paper that I cut down and adhered it to cardstock to make it thicker. The quote was something that I found online and printed on a sheet of vellum. To put it together, I layered a scrap of kraft paper slightly bigger than the strip of vellum with the vellum and punched a hole on either side. I took twine and threaded it through the sentiment strip and wrapped it around the design paper. Then I used foam tape to stick it to a top folding kraft base.

I am sharing this in the following challenges:
The Male Room #66 - Maps/coordinates
Time Out challenges #89 - Home sweet home

Thanks so much for stopping by :)


  1. Lovely masculine card. I love the simplicity of the design and the great sentiment. xx

  2. Fabulous card, love the neutral colours and what a great quote, love you used the vellum as it adds a lovely soft touch to the card. Thanks for joining us at Time Out

  3. Yep, a joyous adventure indeed, Cheryl ... that fabulous twine tied sentiment puts me in mind of traditional luggage labels ... it's brilliant with the background DP! Thanks so much for playing along with us at Time Out! Anita :)
