Our son just got a new job and our daughter transferred to a new college this fall and I wanted to send them each a card. I was going through the Artfully Sent Cricut cartridge looking for ideas and came across this option on page 21 of the booklet. This jumped right out at me as an option that would work for both of them. While they aren't necessarily traveling; it is a new journey for them.
I cut one card at 7" and the other at 5", for the larger card, I backed the sentiment and used glitter glue I had on hand for the stars. On the smaller card, I backed the stars with silver glitter paper and added a couple of white enamel hearts for additional accents. Inside each of the cards, I mounted the star cut-outs, no need wasting perfectly good stars!

This is a "fallback" card made with retired Close to My Heart products that I had laying around. If you happen to have a piece of the barn red paper left from the fundamentals paper pack, you can make a perfect football for cards or decorations!
Here's what I used for this card:
Artbooking cricut cartridge - cut the football from barn red fundamental paper at 5.5" (back with some white for the laces cut-out section) and the Football title in white from page 82 and then cut grass at 1" real dial size from Olive paper. Mount on Ivy Lane background paper and you are all set.
