I was playing around with ideas and came up with the idea of a little instant photo to use on the card front. This card has a bit of London that I framed in the Monthly Moments: Instant Photo 1 die cut from Soft Stone cardstock. I added a few strips of my own washi like tape with a bit of patterned paper from the Pure Poppy + White Basics to "attach" the photo to the card front.
The washi tape look is super simple: I trimmed a 1/2" strip from the patterned paper, tore the ends toward my self to that it would expose the white core of the paper, and used a tape runner to attach it to the card front.
The sentiment is from the Get Lost set and it is perfectly fitting both for the theme of the card and size wise fitting on the bottom of my "instant photo". I added a bit of patterned paper that I stamped myself on the bottom of the card using the World Map set stamped in Fresh Snow on a strip of kraft cardstock.
This card has a fun little Paris scene that I stamped onto white cardstock. I use the banner from the bus to dress up the eiffel tower a bit and used some selective inking to make the banner the length that I needed on the tower. The "i heart paris" sentiment is stamped with the City Scene Sentiments set.
I rounded the corners on the stamped piece and attached it to the a Soft Stone card front with a few more "washi tape" strips. I love how the cards have a fun scrapbook sort of feel to them. The main stamped pieces of each card would be great to use on a travel themed scrapbook page...
