Birthday Card for a World Traveler

Birthday card for a world traveler by Paper Melody's

Hello everyone!  I have a very special birthday card to share with you today — this one was for my “little” brother, who reached the quarter century mark a few days ago, and who happens to have the travel bug.  I found the perfect papers and things for his card in the Crafty Secrets Creating with Vintage Typography CD, and now I’ll share it with you!  Have a look:

The bellboy, envelope, stamp paper, and ticket tucked into the envelope are all from the CD, as is the map paper I used to make a large envelope for the whole card.  I added the text to the telegraph using the typewriter font available on the CD – super easy to add with a textbox in Word.  The postcard and trunk tucked into the envelope are from the Travel Creative Scraps.  Here’s the inside of the card:

I repeated the layout, but made the envelope look like a postcard this time.  The sentiment came from the CD, and I wrote a note in the space where the “address” would go.

Here you can see each piece of the set:

That’s it for today!  Thanks for stopping by, and have a lovely day!
