I used Vintage Globe for this card. Although this set was previously released in outline form, Laurie has re-released it in color. Wait until you see this set. I did a faux leather technique and a faux embossed technique on this card. I got this idea from a video of a card that was done in feathers from Split Coast Stampers. First, I printed the sepia colored version of the globe onto baked brown sugar card stock. I then used a small stylus and traced around the outside of the globe and then around the continents inside the globe. This gives it a faux embossed look. I distressed the entire card using creamy caramel, more mustard, pumpkin pie and chocolate chip (in that order) to give it a faux leather look. Once the distressing was done, I turned it over and using a large stylus, I puffed out the globe's stand and the continents to make the embossing stand out a bit better. I filled the indentations in the back with glue and let it dry and harden. This way, the puffed portion will not flatten out when mailed. I printed the designer paper from the same set onto white card stock and cut a small strip and attached it to the faux leather piece. I mounted the focal image onto navy card stock and then onto a white card stock base. The sentiment was cut using my Silhouette Cameo and came from their online store. I added a resin anchor from EK Success and blue crystal stars to finish the card. Here is what you get with this set:
