Don’t you just hate traffic? Well, I doubt anyone really likes traffic. It’s easy to get frustrated, or even angry, while sitting with thousands of fellow travelers in stand-still, or worse inching along, traffic. If you live somewhere like Atlanta, traffic is a part of life. You have to find a way to cope. The best thing to do is realize the traffic is out of your control, so let it go and Just Breathe. I used the In the City and the Colorful Seasons stamp sets on today’s card to convey just that sentiment.


Here’s what I made:

Stampin' Up! Just Breathe Traffic in the City stamp set made by Candy Ford of Stamp Candy


Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:

  • Marina Mist card stock (CS) cut to 4-1/4″ x 11″, then scored in half at 5-1/2″
  • Basic Black CS cut to 4″ x 5-1/4″
  • Whisper White CS cut to 3-7/8″ x 5-1/8″
  • Whisper White CS cut to 4″ x 5-1/4″ for the inside of the card

Stamped with the In The City stamp set:

  • vehicles and airplanes in Basic Black ink onto the 3-7/8″ x 5-1/8″ Whisper White CS layer
  • filled in the vehicles and airplanes in Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight, Marina Mist, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, Real Red, Smoky Slate, and Soft Suede inks (you can use as many or as few colors as you like)

Stamped using the Colorful Seasons stamp set:

  • sentiment in Basic Black ink onto the 3-7/8″ x 5-1/8″ Whisper White CS layer

Assembled the card:

  • burnished the fold in the card base with a Bone Folder
  • stamped layer glued onto the Basic Black CS layer
  • Basic Black CS layer glued onto the front of the card base
  • 4″ x 5-1/4″ Whisper White CS glued onto the inside of the card base
