It's All About The Journey


     There's definitely a pattern to my Male Room cards, we are a family of vehicle enthusiasts so anything travel is always useful. The theme at The Male Room this fortnight is Washi Tape, so have a rummage in your stash and see what turns up.
     The DL card blank I have used is covered with an old map book page, then I have die cut the word 'Journey' using a Tim Holtz Alterations Mover and Shaper die, into white card. The word looked a little lost so I have coloured it with a blue grey marker pen.
     The word panel is mounted on the map background using foam tape, it's all the way around about 3mm in so it can't be seen easily. I have used two Washi tapes, one with a map on and one with cars along it. I don't usually add a sentiment until I know who it's going to and for which occasion.
     Please pop over to The Male Room and have a look at the DT inspiration, I'm sure you'll find something to get you started.


I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:

  4. Oh I think this is just brilliant! I love the whole travel theme, and the map backing paper is just super. Love the Washi you've used on this one. Super take on the challenge. Note to self - I DO NOT NEED any more Washi, but I do like the map one :)
