Going Global

Yet again I have to appologise for my absence, but shortly after my last post I found out that a very dear friend had passed away quiet suddenly, I found that I just did not have the will to craft and could not find any Motivation.  I recieved some new craft goodies on Wednesday and did not even unpack them until today when I decided to spend some time in my craft room and see what happened, this is the card I created following the sketch over at 

I decided to use my new stamp set Going Global from Stampin Up, but I unfortunately did not order any of the matching DPS so used up some of my snippets.

I started with a very vanilla card base, stamped the world die onto very vanilla and cut with a sizzix circle which I then realised was to big so cut again with a smaller one and was left the little frame.
I used some snippets of Tangerine Tango washi tape and black and vanilla spotted DSP.
I adhered the two strips and the little circle to my card base and then popped the world globe onto some foam pads and adhered near the frame.
the sentiment is from the same stamp set.


  1. Gail, I'm so sorry to hear of your loss; my heart goes out to you. When my dad passed away a year ago, my desire to craft disappeared...until I discovered that doing so made tremendous inroads in my healing process. I hope you find the same; creating is, indeed, wonderful therapy. Your card here: brilliant take on the sketch but, more important, I think it expresses how you feel about your friend. Heart-warming...
