Bon Voyage Card
by Arlene Peterson
Arlene used the slide mounts as frames for miniature vintage postcards printed on vellum. She covered each slide mount with tan paper, then aged them with brown, yellow and tan chalk. She placed a slide mount over each of the three vellum postcards and attached them with adhesive.
Arlene covered the front of the card with city words paper, chalking the edges of the paper with brown chalk. She cut out the suitcase and one luggage “sticker” from the Journey Ephemera, then tore out and crumpled the other images. She added the slide mounts as shown, then spelled out “Bon Voyage” with embossed paper letters and added fibers to the fold of the card.
• Journey Ephemera
• Chocolate Fiber Pack
• Patterned paper: Ephemera Background Papers
• Embossed Paper Brushed Gold & Pewter Letters Cut-Outs™ (to spell “bon voyage”)
• Tan paper (to cover the slide mounts): Teresa’s Handpicked Solid Muted Papers
• 5”x6 1/2” blank card
Warning: We’ve found slide mounts to be addicting! In fact, we love using them on layouts, cards, altered books, journals and collage projects.
