Wander Where the WiFi Is Weak - Camping Card

ETA 7/25/18: I was very pleased that my card was chosen to be an honorable mention at Case this Sketch!  Thanks!

Every year, I need several cards to send to my son at camp.  I am, therefore, a sucker for any camping themed stamps and supplies.  Although I love the outdoors, I have never been camping myself.  Anyhow, here is one that I will send this year.

I used a stencil over yellow cardstock and sponged through a stencil Distress Oxide inks in Faded Jeans, Walnut Stain and Fired Brick.  I then stamped the word, “Wander” with Versafine ink.  The die as cut from a patterned paper and was popped up on the card front.

I decorated the inside of the card with a scrap of the patterned paper, the sentiment and a little image from a related stamp set.

Supplies:  Plaid Fabric Creations stencil duo #98812, Distress Oxide inks Faded Jeans, Walnut Stain and Fired Brick, Versafine Ink Vintage Sepia and Toffee, Elizabeth Crafts Summer Sentiments and Camping Out Clear stamp sets, Pink Paislee Outfitters 6x6 Paper pad, Momenta Happy Camper die set

I used the sketch at CASE this Sketch for my project today! I would also like to enter SimonSaysStamp’s Monday Challenge - Summer Fun & Snippet’s Crafty Playground #330.

The stencil and paper are perfect together, like the different colors used in the stenciling, perfect for his camping cards. Wow you need to go on a family camping trip, I bet you would love it

Your stencilling work is awesome. The tee pee is so cute. How nice to send cards off to your son at camp. He's one lucky fella.

I used to do camping in a tent and really enjoyed it.
