Two Jays Holiday Map

     This was made with some of the new stamps released yesterday by Two Jays. If you get stuck making masculine cards you might like these.
      I began by stamping the World Map twice, once on large a piece of  white card, then again on another smaller piece of card. The second stamped image was the one that I coloured in the three places I was going to cut out, to make them stand out more I added clear embossing powder over the top.
      It was very easy to line up the die cut circles on the plain map using the grid lines, I stuck all three discs flat on the map, then stamped the word Travel in red across the equator.
      I used a script stamp from stash and added a few faint words around the map to break up the white space. The next step was to colour blend the outside edges so it would sit happily on the coloured mat layer I planned to use.
      I stamped three of the small images from the Travel Tags set in different colours and cut them out. Each small coloured disc had a tiny brad put through it and so did each small image, the images all have a foam pad on the back to make them stand away from the map, these images were then stuck on to the main panel.
      I stuck the main panel down on to the mat layer and then on to the card blank before linking each brad set with red embroidery cotton, this made sure that I didn't place too much tension on the thread and buckle the image panel.
      All that was left to add was a tag which holds the greeting, this was edged with the same ink as the main panel and mounted on a foam pad.
      If you know someone that's travelled, or is hoping to, this would make a great card for them, you can pick out the places they have been or wish to see, making it unique to them.
