Get Outta Town

Hello, my friends! Have you been joining in the fun of the Card Design Handbook Week in the Moxie Fab World? That magazine is packed with design basics for cardmakers and don't forget to pick one up here! I was lucky enough to have a couple of cards published in this issue and you can see one of them featured here and another one featured here.


Today's card is for the Asymmetry Challenge. You may have noticed that I have been using this design many times now. =)


We needed a card for a going away party for a neighbor in our condo building and since the recipient is a girly girl, I decided to go with a bit of a girly/nostalgic look. The suitcase stack from Get Outta Town set is stamped on patterned paper then shaded with Copic markers.


The patterned paper is from London Market 6x6 Collage Paper Pack by Pink Paislee and the sentiment is from Postmarks set by Papertrey Ink.

That's all for now. Have a beautiful day! =)


Thanks for stopping by!
