Create with Connie & Mary Saturday Blog Hop!

Love Is In The Air is our theme this week for our Saturday Blog Hop at Create with Connie & Mary. We have so many new products in both the Occasions Catalog and Sale-A-Bration Catalog that would serve that purpose so I chose the "Sky Is The Limit" stamp set. It was first on my list because I love to create masculine cards. Here's my card for this week:

I love how the tiny airplane banner came out. I scored & folded it twice on each end, a mountain fold and a valley fold and glued the banner in place using Stampin' Dimensionals:

Card Directions:
  • Card Base: Soft Sky Cardstock measuring 8-1/2" x 5-1/2". Score and fold at 4-1/4". Stamp the airplane image from the Sky Is The Limit stamp set using Early Espresso Ink to the far right and at the top. Stamp the cloud images repeatedly using Soft Sky Ink.
  • Layer #2: Love Blossoms Designer Paper Stack measuring 5-1/2" x 1-3/4". Glue to the bottom front of the card base. Stamp the sentiment from the Bloomin' Love stamp set using Early Espresso Ink to the right onto the designer paper.
  • Ribbon: Glue a piece of the Pool Party 3/8" Glitter Ribbon at the top of the designer paper.
  • Banner: Cut a piece of Whisper White Cardstock measuring 1/2" x 5". Stamp the sentiment from the Project Life Memories In The Making stamp set in the center using Early Espresso Ink. Score at 1/2" & 3/4" on both ends. Trim the ends into a "V" and fold on score lines. Add Stampin' Dimensionals to the back and press in place on the card front. Tie a bow at the end of the White Baker's Twine and glue in place to the bottom of the airplane using Glue Dots. Measure and cut the twine so it fits under the banner fold. Add a Glue Dot to secure the end of the twine in the fold of the banner.

  1. Very nice card! Great subtle colors!

  2. Very clever card. I think I love the banner behind the plane the best. I remember that was popular when I was a little girl.
