Cricut 360 Challenge #5 Travel

Our challenge today at was Travel since so many people are traveling now, trying to squeeze that vacation in before the kids go back to school. We could use any cartridge and should have something like planes, trains, ships etc. in it.

I chose to use "pack your bags" (have I told you I love this cartridge!) You have seen it used alot with my projects because honestly I don't own a ton of cartridges (roughly 45) so I have a limited resource of items to use. If I would have had Campin critters (which is so on my wish list) I would have used that cartridge)

The overall project measures 6" High to the little tab puller to the bottom. It is 4" wide.

I can provide the instructions for making this project to anyone that wants them. I'm moving so I am doing projects ahead and won't have all that done here right now but would be happy to send to you.

Don't forget to click pictures for larger view. I took these three and put together so you can see how it works. Bottom is a completely done picture.

I cut the phrase at 2" and inked it with a silver colorbox ink and then went over that with some copper just to give it a shimmery aged look. The embellishments on the front are from K & Company (love there little embellishments!)

The ship was cut at 4" and I inked it with my usual chestnut brown but then used a silver along the black portion of the ship and then copper again to get that aged metal look. I inked the water and the smoke with the same. I added a little net to the side just for that nautical feel. The paper the ship is on is "Fancy Pants" beach bum. It has water and fishys on it so I thought very fitting. The pattern paper on the top is from Cosmo cricket "girl friday" and the brads at the top are all bo bunny brads. I hope you like the project. A friend of mine sent me the cutest card made like this so I sit down and figured out how she made it and started making them. I love these tag/cards!
