Let's Wander Where the Wi-Fi Is Week:

The Inspiration Behind the Card

When I first saw the Let's Wander Stamp Set, I was instantly reminded of my childhood camping trips with my family. We would pack up the car, leave the bustling city behind, and head into the woods for a weekend of hiking, storytelling around the campfire, and sleeping under the stars. This stamp set captures that sense of adventure and nostalgia perfectly, making it a joy to work with.

Crafting the Card

To create this card, I started by stamping the charming image from the Let's Wander Stamp Set onto Neenah Solar White 80 lbs Cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. This combination is my go-to for crisp, clean lines that are perfect for coloring.


Adding Color and Life

Next came the fun part – coloring! I used my trusty Ohuhu Honolulu Brush Markers, which are fantastic for blending and adding vibrant hues. Coloring is such a therapeutic process, don't you think? It's like bringing a black-and-white photo to life with your own personal touch.

Creating the Perfect Frame

Once the image was colored, I trimmed the cardstock down to 4" x 5 1/4". To add a bit of subtle detail, I rubbed the edges with Faded Jeans Distress Oxide Ink. This technique is a great way to add a hint of color without overwhelming your design. It's like framing a picture – it draws the eye in and makes the central image pop.


The Sentiment

For the sentiment, I used Versafine Clair Nocturne Ink, which provides such rich, deep impressions. Stamping the sentiment on the card front added that perfect finishing touch, making the card feel complete.

Preparing the Card Base

The card base is made from Neenah Desert Storm 100 lbs Cardstock. I cut it to 4 1/4" x 11" and scored it at 5 1/2" to create a top-folding card. Before folding, I stamped the same image from the Let's Wander Stamp Set on the inside using Scored Timber Distress Oxide Ink. It's a lovely surprise for the recipient when they open the card – a little something extra that shows you care.


Assembling the Card

I adhered the card front to the base using 3D Foam Squares, which add wonderful dimension. This is a pro tip: using foam squares can really elevate your card (literally and figuratively) by adding depth and interest.

Finishing Touches

Finally, I added a few Clear Sparkle Enamel Dots from The Rabbit Hole Designs around the sentiment. These little embellishments catch the light beautifully and add just the right amount of sparkle.
