Carta Bella - Journey Together

Hello, Carta Bella Paper fans!
I'm up on the Carta Bella Blog today with another greeting card using the new Travel Stories Collection!

Journal Together Card

The Carta Bella Travel Stories Collection is has wonderful patterns including sky, land, and sea patterns...perfect to create some "travel" scenes on your paper projects!

Designer Tip:  Creating a Scene

1. Choose a subtle and muted pattern for the background.  Here I chose the road/railroad pattern.
2.  Choose the land/sea pattern and trim to add at the bottom area of your card or layout.  
3.  The orange airmail pattern serves as a header, of sorts, and in a "pop" of sunshine color.
4.  Next, cut a fun hot air ballon from another contrasting color, like red and kraft.
5.  Finally, add a couple of sentiment stickers and twine to finish your card off.

Here is the supply list that I used to create the  greeting cards!

Paper Trimmer
Scoring Tool
Tape Adhesive
Foam Adhesive
Liquid Glue
Baker's Twine

1.  Cut apart Carta Bella Natural White Linen Card Stock to 4.25" by 11" and score at at 5", fold and score to create the card base.

2.  Cut Travel Stories Collection patterned paper to desired sizes for layering on your card front.  My background piece is 4" by 5.25".

3.  Adhere the scene layers and balloon die cuts together to accentuate the contrasting patterns of papers that were selected.

4.  Next, include some of your favorite Travel Stories Collection stickers, and add a bit of twine for texture and movement.

I hope you are inspired to create a fun scene on your paper projects today!

Thanks so much for stopping by the stage!
