I used an old paper pad from PTI called "Road Trip". I bought it when my now 7 year old was three for his "UP" themed birthday party. It was perfect! I am glad I still have it because it is a natural choice when using this darling globe. I also took a trip down memory lane by using this super old "Congratulations" set from SU! (I can't even recall the name) as well as an old favorite;Just the Ticket and the coordinating dies.
I heat embossed the globe stand using gold powder. Our globe growing up had a gold base and it totally brings back memories. My siblings and I would have great fun looking at it and of course, spinning it! I think my mom still has it, which is definitely a vintage treasure now!
I created a vintage looking tag as the backdrop for the focal image. I also stamped a few images from yet another old set from SU!;Stamp of Authenticity. It one that I will never part with. I used some hemp twine to tie at the top of the tag.
I did some machine stitching using a zig zag pattern at the bottom of the card for some detail and interest. A few gold sequins, which I debated adding to a masculine card, finish it off! Thanks for fluttering by!
