I had plans to do some traveling this summer with friends who live across the country from me. However, my recent surgery and my friend's broken foot waylaid our plans. So I thought I'd make a card for them telling them that I do wish they were here.
My card base is Papertrey Ink's kraft cardstock, and the patterned paper is from We R Memory Keepers Down the Boardwalk collection. Before adhering the two layers together, I sewed lines on the top layer and then distressed the edges of both pieces.
I used Papertrey Ink's Road Trip stamp set for the sentiment, compass rose, and the little flag marking my location.
I got the idea of stringing my hemp through eyelets from Ashley Cannon Newell. I thought it was a fun and different look!
