A Traveler and World Map Circle Thinlits Card

I don't use my Circle Card Thinlits cutter very often.  I forget I have it until I run across a card that has used it.  I found this card (or something like it!!! LOL) made by Mary at Mary's Craft Room.  I thought it was such a great masculine card and I would get to use the Circle Card Thinlits! You can see her card here.  I changed the greeting but other than that it's a very close copy!!! 

This was a very easy card to make.  I first stamped the "World Map" and set it aside.  Then I took a piece of scrap paper and cut out the card.  I did this so I would know the placement of the map.  I wanted to cut both at the same time so I would get the inside round part right.  I trimmed the top, right side, and the bottom.  I lined up the map on the Early Espresso card stock and then I cut the pieces out.  

The camera and the train were stamped using Early Espresso ink.  The train was punched out using a 2-1/2" circle punch.  The camera was fussy cut.  The scallop was punched out and the words were done on my computer and punched out using the 1-3/8" circle punch.

It was a pretty quick card to make!  And it's a wonderful masculine card.  On the inside (behind the train), I punched out a 2-1/2" Very Vanilla Circle so something could be written on the card to the person receiving it!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
