Sentimental Journey Sneak Peek
I made this little gift set for my mom who will be flying out to Salt Lake City with me this summer when I go to attend Stampin' Up! convention! I'm super excited to go and even more excited that Mom and my daughter Hannah will be travelling with me:) By day, I'll be stamping by day with thousands of other demonstrators while Mom and Hannah will shop and maybe do a little site-seeing.
The Embellish Parties Color Challenge using Red, Black, Kraft & White was the inspiration for theme and color of my project, while the MOJO Monday Sketch Challenge #134 was the layout inspiration of my card with a little carry-over to the favor.
The main image and sentiment is from the brand-new stamp set called Sentimental Journey, which will become available for customer purchase on May 1st. It's a great set to make masculine cards with...and what's even better is the stamp set has it's very own pack of coordinating Sentimental Journey Designer Series Paper.
I'll be making up some swaps to mail off this weekend using this set, too...so stay tuned for more Sentimental Journey projects to come:)
The favor was die cut from the Fancy Favor Bigz XL Die and stamped using the "pad to paper" technique to give it some texture.
Now it's your turn to get sentimental and make a goodie for someone special:)
