Tacky Tourist Signage

We don’t have a name for “Tacky Tourists” in Germany. But it’s a really good and funny description for these kind of travelers and I think, we should have a German word for them. For this card I created a new road sign. A couple of years ago, my BFF Dagmar and I visited the Gizeh Pyramides at Kairo, Agypt. That could be the right place to implement such a sign, because everyone takes a photo and they’re often very funny/silly…


Directions:

1. Cut out a 3”x3” inch piece of yellow cardstock square and round the edges with a corner chomper. Draw a fine line with irresistible Pico Embellisher Tuxedo Black.

2. Die cut the letters and glue them onto the cardstock. Fussy cut a small stripe of black cardstock, glue it under the sign to create a pylon.

3. Cut out a 5” x 5” inch piece of white cardstock. Mask about ¾ of it with masking tape and sponge the area with Electric Blue from Radiant Neon 4 Cool ink pads.
