Beautiful World

So this past week has been a pretty busy one for me. I have had my daughter and grandchildren visiting. The children are three and a half so they are very busy! We had so much fun but I didn't get to play in my craft room all week.That's okay though, I would gladly trade time in the craft room for time with the loves of my life!

We spent a day at Davison Orchard in Vernon. If you have never been there, I would highly recommend it. There is so much for kids of all ages to do. And the best thing is there is no cost to get in. They ask that you don't bring your own picnic and that you eat at the restaurant there which is understandable. The food there is amazing so I don't know why you wouldn't want to eat there.

We also spent a day at the Kangaroo Farm in Kelowna. Their new location is huge and the animals are able to run around freely. Due to Covid 19, we weren't able to hold the baby joeys but we were able to pet the other kangaroos, wallabies, and even a porcupine. The little ones had a great time there as well.

Now on to today's card. I used the new Beautiful World Bundle to make this card. It is a perfect set for those difficult to make masculine cards.

I started with an Early Espresso card base. I added a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock that I first stamped the globe and globe stand on. I spritzed the back of this cardstock and then embossed it using the Old World Paper 3D embossing folder. I tore the bottom edge of this cardstock and then sponged all of the edges using Crumb Cake ink. I wanted to give it a real distressed look. I wrapped a piece of Early Espresso Faux Suede trim around the cardstock and then attached it to the card base using Tombo multipurpose glue. I added a strip of DSP from the World of Good Specialty Designer Series Paper pack. I tore the bottom edge off of this as well and sponged all edges. I attached this to the embossed cardstock using Tombo multipurpose. I then stamped my sentiment using Early Espresso ink on a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock. I tore the bottom edge and sponged all edges on this piece as well. Then I attached this piece to the card using dimensionals. This could be a retirement card or a congratulations card or even a birthday card. I like how the sponging on the edges adds to the old world look.

What I used for today's card:

I hope you enjoyed today's post and today's card. This bundle is definitely one to have in the stash for those masculine cards. Stay healthy and keep creating!!
