Created this Compass card using all Tim Holtz items except for the jute string. Used the example on package for inspiration. Stamped the Compass multiple times and cut the pieces using the dies in the Compass Blueprint set that I was happy to find at Hobby Lobby.
Base is TH Shattered Core cardstock which I used TH sander on.
Compass 6 layers:
1. off-white Shattered Core 3" x 3" with word Compass on it
2. off-white Shattered Core Compass cut out with the directions N, E, S & W showing
3. blue Shattered Core outer circle
4. blue Shattered Core inner circle
5. orange bottom star layer
6. green top star layer
Sentiment tag is same TH Shattered Core cardstock as used on the Compass.
Used TH Distress Ink walnut stain on most of this.
I like the masculine look of this. Have to tell you a funny thing that happened as I was making this. I had the card assembled and noticed I had the compass upside down. Luckily it was the bottom layer and it lifted up without tearing anything and I was able to get it right side up. I use to be bad at giving driving directions. Once when my hubby & I were going to PA to visit an Aunt of mine I told him that the Howard Johnson & place she lived was in one direction and it was in the opposite direction pretty far from where we were. My hubby has also been known to get lost a time or two before using a GPS device and most of you know that men will not stop to ask for directions.
