General Cards, Graduation

Retiring Favorite – En Route

So my Red, White and Blue week last week didn’t work out as I expected.  I was getting ready to travel…..19 hour airplane trip….and I’ll be gone almost a month.  I had so many things to do and even though I thought I could fit everything in….it just didn’t happen.  So I’m going to save those cards for July….because well Red, White & Blue fit in so great for a Fourth of July Celebration. And since I’m traveling, I thought that this retiring stamp set – En Route, would be perfect for sharing another card.


It took me awhile to make cards with this stamp set and once I started I couldn’t stop because it makes some fun “non flowery” cards.  Great for the men in your life, as well as  graduates.  This stamp set is being discontinued….it will only be available through June 3rd! Or while supplies last….so if you like this card, go right to my online shop and place your order.

This is super simple to make….and don’t forget to use your Best Route enamel shapes to mark your spot on the map!

  • En Route Stamp Set
