Pinterest Tuesday - my first 'gap' card

Every Tuesday we do a 'Pinterest Tuesday' challenge on our Crafters Anonymous Facebook page. I spied a card that was called a 'gap' card and thought I could have a go. Since it's my brother in laws birthday shortly I thought I would make him one. I have wanted to get into my new DSP since it arrived and this is from the Fan Fare pack. I did wheel the 'travel journal' build a wheel on some of the DSP to give it more details. I love stamping directly onto DSP, you can alter it to the colours or designs you want. The ruler strip was part of the DSP same with the sentiment "c'est la vie' which means 'that's life' according to Google Translate! hehe To get the name I used the new Typeset Alphebet which are all in capitals which makes doing this type of thing PERFECT!!! I did cut 2 of each letter so there is one on the front and one on the back of it to give it the strength to hold it all together.
This card is an oversize card so I made my own envelope using the Simply Scored Diagonal Plate - it make making envelopes SO easy!!!
Hope you Wednesday is a good one!
