Happy Travels Note Card Kit

Hi everyone! I hope you're having a great week!

The Glitz Digital team is sharing projects on the Glitz blog today using the Happy Travels collection. The papers and element packs are part of the One Buck Wednesday at Jessica Sprague today. :)

I found THIS note card set on the Silhouette blog, and I decided to do something similar using the digital papers:

I know I'm always looking for ideas for paper crafted gifts, and I thought all of these items would work as a note card kit. There are the cards, envelopes, vellum confetti, and seals for the envelope.

Here's what the cards look like:

I say "cards," but I actually lazed out and only made two cards. ;) I started by re-szing two of the digital papers from the Happy Travels Paper Kit. I fussy cut one of the airplanes from the patterned paper. Isn't that plane fun? I used a cloud from Simon Says Stamp and backed it with the other patterned paper.  The cute sentiment is from the Up and Away stamp set.

For the background, I stamped the Hero Arts Tweed in white. I love the subtle texture! Here's a close-up:

I also made envelopes:

I used the same airplane paper as the card and printed on the polka dot patterned paper on the backside. I love that with digital, I can put whatever patterns I want together for double-sided papers.

The Happy Travels Element Kit has a cool series of vintage travel posters. I'm thinking about printing a few and framing them for my son's room. I did the opposite here, and shrunk them:

After printing and trimming the images, I stitched them together to make a banner. I thought that with the note card kit, you could trim off whichever image you wanted and use it as a seal on the envelope. It would also make a cute banner. :)

Lastly, I made confetti for the note cards:

I printed two of the digital papers on vellum. As a tip, I always use the "glossy paper" option when I print on vellum. I die-cut planes and hearts out of the papers.

Phew! That was a lot of pictures. If you're still with me, I wanted to mention again if you like the Happy Travels papers and elements, they're on sale $1 and $1.50 today only. Score! You can find them HERE.

You can see my project and other samples from the team on the Glitz blog. :)

Have a great day! Thank you so much for stopping by!
