Traveler stamp set...another retiring set from Stampin' Up!

Traveler from Stampin' Up!

Another wonderful set that retires May 31 is the Traveler set from Stampin' Up!.  This card is dear to my heart because the old-fashioned pull-out camera is one of the antiques passed down to me from my father.  The decor of my home is pretty eclectic; more towards a modern look...except for a couple of antique furniture pieces, including an antique mahogany fold-down secretary desk with a number of pigeonholes.  This camera and the desk are so special because my mom and dad and I were shopping garage sales one one the the few trips they made from Minnesota to visit us in Houston.  We found the antique desk together, and the camera found a wonderful home where I could look at it every day.  This card reminds me of the wonderful memories with my mom and dad.          

The Travelers stamp set includes six images, all with the same amount of detail as the camera on this card.  Sadly, it will retire May 31.  I think this card works for either a mother's day or a father's day card and  used it to make a card that could be used for either Mother's Day or Father's Day.  I used a Soft Suede base card and then a layer in Basic Black, which seemed appropriate for a camera.  Then I made a frame out of wood grain paper from the new Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack. that reminded me of the Mahogany drop down secretary desk where my camera sits.   I used the Layering Squares Framelits to make the frame, and then used the smalled Stitched Shapes Framelits Die to make the oval for the sentiment.  


The ribbon is a small piece of the 5/8" burlap ribbon, which will carry over to the new catalog, along with a small piece of the new 1/4" Copper Trim from the upcoming June 1 catalog.  The sentiment is stamped in Soft Suede.


The sentiment is from the Thoughtful Banners stamp set, an extremely versatile set with over 4
6 different sentiments and 3 different banner outlines. This sentiment set is from the current catalog, and will carry over to the new catalog.  It has a coordinating punch to punch out the banner shapes, or the sentiments work on many other sentiment shapes, like the ovals I used on these cards.
