Miss “U” Travel Themed Card

Hello We R friends! It’s Aly here today to share a fun travel-themed card with you. This is a clever card you can send to friends while they’re away from home to let them know you’re thinking of them. You’ll need an alphabet of some kind–stickers, stamps, or (in my case) the alphabet folder from the ABC 123 Next Level Embossing Folder Set.

Add your alphabet to the front of you card, making sure the letter U is missing. For my card I embossed the front with my Evolution Advanced and the alphabet folder. Then I covered the bottom row of letters (which contained the U) with some patterned paper.

When using the new Next Level Embossing Folders be sure to set your Evolution Advanced dial at the very top as shown in the photo below. These folders are extra dimensional and need a little less pressure than the standard embossing settings on the dial.

I kept the card pretty simple to allow the beautiful embossing to stand out. To finish off my card I added another banner cut strip of patterned paper, another strip with the word “missing” printed on it, and a sticker with a letter U Thicker attached to form my sentiment, “missing U”. Get it?šŸ˜‰

This is a great design to use if you’re traveling as well. You could send it to your love ones waiting for you at home. So, are you traveling this summer? Do you have any crafting plans to go along with your travels?
