Life’s an Adventure…with Simple Stories “Let’s Go” collection

It’s always a lot of fun to make greeting cards by hand, but it’s even more fun to make a card that isn’t typical. Today’s card has a theme that is not typical for most greeting cards. It says, “Life’s and adventure. Enjoy the Journey.” It could be used to congratulate someone who is starting out on a new path in life or to bring encouragement to someone who’s had a set back or disappointment. I used the “Let;s Go” collection from Simple Stories which came in the September 2022 SCT Sampler kit I subscribe to once a month. The theme is travel and adventure, so it would be perfect for scrapbooking a trip or vacation. As you can see in the photo below, the background paper is a map.

This card was easy and fun to make, but it seem like I say that a lot. I guess I just really really like making cards. I used a border punch from American Crafts to put the fancy edge on the orange pattern paper. Beneath the orange paper is a vanilla cream paper that has some texture to it. I cut the word enjoy with the die that came in the SCT Sampler. I used a white gelly roll gel pen to add white dashes all around the word enjoy. The tag and stars are from the paper collection from Simple Stories called, “Let’s Go.” I just trimmed about 1/4″ off the left and right side of the tag to slim it up, and used a hole punch to punch the hole at the top. The words are stickers from the same collection. The stars were on a piece of pattern paper and I used a circle punch to punch them out. The bow is tied with baker’s twine in an orange color to match the back panel.
