recipe: Stampendous Traveling Far, Joy of the Journey; Recollections Blank Notecards; VersaMark Ink; Recollections Sapphire Pearl Embossing Powder; Marvy Heat Tool
I was a little sneaky with the Stampendous sentiment I used on this card. The Joy of the Journey stamp was actually originally designed for use as a friendship greeting with some of the summer images of boats and beaches. The full sentiment reads "The joy of the journey is best measured by the friends not the miles." It's really a lovely friendship sentiment, but I thought it also paired well with this Traveling Far stamp depicting the Three Wisemen on their journey to Bethlehem. What a joyful journey that must have been! So, I inked up just the portion of the stamp that reads "The joy of the journey". That's the great thing about stamps, you can ink of any or all of it! It's up to you!
All of the supplies used to make this card are available at Michaels. This would be an easy card to mass produce, if you're like me and haven't even given a thought to Christmas cards yet this year! Or, this card paired with my earlier coordinating card would make a nice gift set. One trip to Michaels and you are all set to get inky!
