Traveler Happy Birthday Trio for Pals Paper Arts

by Joanne James17. June 2014 10:25

Today's card is for this week's Pals Paper Arts challenge, where Team 2 have chosen a rather patriotic colour palette this week, with one last opportunity to use Midnight Muse before it retires at the end of the month:

I decided these colours would make a perfect masculine card and so have another sneak peek using the Traveler stamp set, coming in the new 2014 annual catalogue. Here is my card:

I stamped three of the stamps in the set - the ocean liner, the globe and the steam train - in Midnight Muse, then cropped these images and mounted them on individual mats in the same colour, followed by a larger Real Red and Midnight Muse panel. This is then overlaid on a crossways panel finished with some Real Red candy dots and lastly a sentiment stamped in Midnight Muse with one of the Itty Bitty Banners stamps and cut out with the co-ordinating framelit. I even gave the inside some star treatment with a steam train - I don't do this often enough, and even when I do I often forget to share with you: 

I really like this set, having used it so much already. Despite its 'vintage' look, it lends itself to a more modern finish too. I'm also linking my card up to Addicted to CAS where the theme this week is 'transport'. Back tomorrow with the Wednesday Deals and another card. Until then, I'm off to prepare for a private class tomorrow, get on with some admin and then hopefully squeeze in a make or two as well - happy stampin'!

Hi Deb - I might have inadvertently led you astray on this one - having gone back to measure the original, I didn't use a 1" square punch at all! Apologies - accurate dimensions are as follows:
Horizontal navy panel: 4.4cm x 9.5cm
Vertical navy panel: 5cm x 12.6cm
Red vertical panel: 4.4cm x 12cm
Navy squares: 3.5cm x 3.5cm (1 3/8" punch)
Stamped images: 3.2cm x 3.2cm (1 1/4" punch)
Hope this helps! Joanne xx
