Tim Holtz Sizzix WORLD TRAVEL Card



Hello Lovelies! I'm keeping up my travel focus with the goodies from Tim Holtz's latest Sizzix Vault release! Today's make is a travel card with a very simple surprise.


I used to same technique from the Picture Show travel album to hide a little spot for a picture and/or a special note!




Let's take a closer look at both of these die sets. You can purchase them individually or get the whole bundle from Simon Says Stamp.

I'm also borrowing a few dies from this year's earlier vault release to perk up my card.


Tim Holtz|Sizzix FUNKY FLORAL DIE SET




I'm also heading back to my stash of Distress-colored cardstock for the die-cuts.

PROJECT WALKTHROUGH

Tip: I use my color swatches almost every time when selecting the color palette for my projects.


INKING

Ink smooth white cardstock (Neenah 110lb Solar White) by rubbing the ink pad directly onto the paper until you achieve even coverage.




 


EMBOSSING & SPRAYING

  • Emboss Distress Watercolor Cardstock using the Crackle Embossing Folder.

  • Turn over to the "pointier" side of the design and spray a light layer of Antique Linen Distress Oxide Spray

  • Add a few random touches of Pumice Stone and the darkest color, Brushed Corduroy

  • Lie flat and set aside to dry



Once dry, use a Mini Ink Blender and Picked Raspberry ink to highlight the top left, right middle side and bottom left side of the embossed .


 


DIE-CUTTING


I took a few photos so that you could follow along with making the die-cuts needed. NOTE: I forgot to photo the pink and yellow flower die-cuts from the Funky Florals set, but you'll need to cut those too to finish the card.)





GLOBE



LETTERING



AIRPLANE


 


INKING & ASSEMBLY

Carefully darken the edges of the countries using the Mini-Ink Blender and Picked Raspberry Distress Ink.



Adhere the die-cuts.



CREATE A HINGED FLAP

  • Secure the Globe Outline to a folded scrap of cardstock so that the edge of the die comes a bit over the edge of the cardstock

  • Die-cut

  • Apply glue to the front cover of the hinged flap and stick the globe to the front

  • [Optional] Ink a smaller circle in Picked Raspberry and adhere to the left circle on the inside of the hinged flap. A photo will be adhered to the right side.



ARRANGE THE DIE-CUTS

  • Lay out all of the die-cut pieces on a blank cardfront until you are happy with the placement.

  • Cover with Glad Press N' Seal (or similar), press the sealing wrap onto the diecuts so that when you lift the wrap up, the die-cuts remain adhered to it.

  • Flip over to the reverse side.

  • Apply craft glue to the die-cuts and some foam tape to the "Adven



Position the die-cuts and sticker over the embossed background and adhere.


 


Cute and complete!
