Sending Smiles Across the Miles . . .and Around the World Card

This week Operation Write Home‘s Midweek Throw Down challenge was to make a card with black, white and either a pop of red or green for a hero to send to a friend or family member.

Since the last card I made was a black, white, and red “Love You” Card, I ended up doing something different for this challenge by using a black, white, and green color scheme  – especially since I had just received this “space”-y looking green and black memory box patterned cardstock in a prize box.  Since the pattern of the cardstock was so busy, I just kept the design of the card simple and also added some layers to make sure my sentiment and world image popped.

Map and Globe stamp from Avocado Arts “Zip n By to Say Hi” set, "sending smiles across the miles" sentiment (Avocado Arts’ “Hello Friend” clear stamp set), Memory Box Cardstock

Stamps: Globe and World Map Stamps (Avocado Arts’ “Zip n By to Say Hi” clear stamp set), “sending smiles across the miles” sentiment (Avocado Arts’ “Hello Friend” clear stamp set)

Other:  Patterned Cardstock (memory box, from pack of 4×6 assorted patterns – 30 sheets),  Tuxedo Black Memento Ink (Tsukineko), 1 ½ inch Circle Punch (EK Success), Advanced Tape Glider (ATG) and Adhesive (Scotch), Circle Tool (EK Success), Paper Trimmer (Xacto)

    I have been looking for this sentiment but have never even heard of Avocado Arts so thanks for that! Love the black and white globe with the busyiness of the background paper. Another great card!
