Map out the Birthday

I am excited to share a card I made today. I am very happy with it. I cracked open a stamp set I just ordered, World Map and had fun making this vintage distressed map/travel card. I just love this background stamp. It is really versatile and totally great for masculine cards too.

I did a lot of distressing by tearing paper and using my bone folder, Distressing Tool, Gorgeous Grunge stamp set, and aqua painter. I wanted an aged and weathered look so I even folded up and rolled some corners. I am very happy with this card and love how it turned out; and my husband and inlaws -who were visiting this weekend, were also impressed.

Here are some close ups of the details on the card.


Here is the sketch and inspiration for this card:
