You are my happy place



This is different for me, huh?  A friend had asked me to make a card for the guy in her life, and they love to travel, so she asked me to include a map.  Luckily, I had one stashed away for crafting!


I pulled out anything else that seemed like it could relate to travel: ticket stamps from Our Craft Lounge's Vintage Traveler, an arrow from Inspired by Stamping, a sentiment from Altenew.


I cut my map on a random panel, along the fold lines.  I wound up with Colorado.  Turns out, my friend's beau traveled to Colorado earlier this year, so unintentionally this card wound up having even more personal meaning!

Thanks so much for coming by today!
