One layout, two cards

Card layout challenges can be a great way for beginners to learn about card design and can also help more experienced crafters get new ideas. These challenges can be found in craft magazines, on blogs and on Facebook.
For these two cards, I have used the layout from the Trimcraft website May layout challenge. I wanted to see how different one layout can look when two very different collections are used.
The first card is a Bon Voyage card, but could easily be used for Father's Day or a birthday, with a change of sentiment. I have used Trimcraft First Edition Travel Notes papers for this card.
 Products used:
Trimcraft First Edition Travel Notes 8x8 paper pad, First Edition Nesting Stamp Dies
Docrafts All Aboard Washi Tape, Denim Dome Stickers

The second card uses the Trimcraft Helz Cuppleditch Fun Fair range. I love the ticket strip washi tape in this collection and wanted to use it on the card instead of a sentiment.
Products used:
Trimcraft Helz Cuppleditch Fun Fair 12x12 printed paper pack, 8x8 glittered paper pack, Decoupage Pad, Washi Tape and Wooden Buttons


  1. two totally brilliant cards and both totally different. Love the second one with the lovely summer bright colours and image.

    1. Thanks Lisa. I don't usually work with such bright girly colours but I enjoyed that one.
