Never know when an old Atlas will come in handy



I just had to take part in the Moxie Fab maps challenge, the main reason being I love maps. I had been meaning to make this card for a long time but couldn't find an atlas that was cheap enough to buy and destroy. At the back of my mind I knew that there was an old school atlas somewhere in my mum's house. I was determined to find it and managed to do so this evening, it's pretty old and tattered and so I am happy that I will be able to put it to good use. I have many map projects planned now after finding my atlas that is full of colourful maps.

For this card I cut out a small section of a map and stuck it onto cardtock and punched out the small hearts, I did this to make the hearts more sturdy. The sentiment is computer generated, I don't have too many fonts on my substitute computer but I think this font goes well with the card. I stuck the hearts onto the card to form a square and then stuck one of my favourite chipboard pieces onto the cardstock with self adhesive dimensional foam. 

I am so happy that I got to take part in the challenge at the very last minute :)
