Hello to Friends Across the Globe

Rather than send FaceBook greetings to my friends in Germany and England, Switzerland and the Netherlands, I’m going to send this fun globe-l greeting.  I used the Places You’ll Go photopolymer stamp set since hopping on a plane just isn’t in the cards this month.  (cards–get it?  cards!?)  You’ll notice I did throw the plane on the card anyway!

As a college physical geography graduate I’m always a ‘sucker’ for a stamp set with a globe in it.  This set is no exception.

You can create a great card for someone who’s taking their first solo trip to Europe:  “adventure awaits”.

Or, create a great card for a guest in your home who’s come from far away, perhaps on their first airplane trip: “welcome”.

Or create a great card for someone lucky enough to be taking a cruise or touring Europe via train : “Oh, the places you will go”.

My card:

Consider treating yourself to a Clear Block Storage Caddy so you can keep all of your clear blocks in one tidy place.

TIP:  If your globe image doesn’t stamp perfectly — like mine below — try placing a Stampin’ Pierce Mat under your card stock before you stamp.  See the difference in photo 1 and photo 2 below?

Photo 1: the image was fully inked.

I’m looking forward to sending variations of this card to my host families from my own European adventure last November.  Right now that means France, France and Germany.

#sendmorehandmadecards     Challenge yourself to send 3-5 cards each month to unsuspecting recipients.  Not just birthday cards (which are definitely great) but ‘just because’ cards as well.
