You Mean the World to Me - Stampin' Up! Going Global

  There's not much time to get your cards made for Valentine's day so here's another idea.  We made this card at my stamp club last week.  It's a good guy card, not all pink and frilly with lace and doilies!  Not that that's really my style anyway but it's nice to have a masculine card ready to go for your sweetie or Dad or son or brother.

  The card base is Crumb Cake with a layer of Typeset Specialty paper and a panel of Lost Lagoon embossed with the World Traveler embossing folder.  We used a sponge and some Crumb Cake ink to highlight the raised parts.

  A small strip of the the chevron ribbon goes across the card front.  The world is stamped with Mossy Meadow ink onto the Sale-a-Bration (SAB) Perfectly Artistic DSP.  It looks so cool as the swirls in the paper look like weather or clouds over the "ocean" parts.  Remember that this pack of paper is a limited time only Sale-a-Bration offering so you only have until Feb. 15 to earn it with a qualifying order.  Next, We hand cut the world as I didn't have a punch or framelit that fit just right.

  For the sentiment we stamped it in Mossy Meadow and punched it out with an oval punch.  And here is my favorite heart from the Owl punch using the gold foil paper.  The world and sentiment are popped up with dimensionals and the heart is attached using a drop of glue.

  Thanks for looking! Did you stamp today?
