MCT June Release Blog Hop: Flying By To Say...

by Veronica

Welcome, welcome to today's Release Blog Hop. If you've come here from Trell's blog, you're on the right path. If not, mosey on over to Emma's blog to start the Hop from the beginning.

Today's project is a 5.5" x 5.5" card I created for my oldest brother's 40th birthday. This card was super simple to make, but came out so cute (and looks like I spent way more time on it than I did). What's the trick to making a quick card look time-consuming/fancy? Layers. Lots of layers.

The patterned papers are all from an old Stampin' Up! 6 x 6 paper pad. After die cutting my clouds and airplane (MCT's Fly Away With Me Dies), I stamped the airplane (Fly Away With Me Stamp Set) on the cut-out and colored it with my Copics. I daubered around the clouds with some turquoise ink to make them
stand out a bit more. The sentiment from Fly Away With Me Sentiments was stamped onto the included banner die and everything was popped up one or more time. And I mean EVERYTHING! Pop dots were the only adhesive used on this card! The inside of the card simply says, "Happy Birthday!".

    You are so right...It does look much more involved! I can see now that you only used white paper for all your cuts. What a brilliant way to conserve specialty papers. But, your images don't lack a thing. The background paper is the perfect foundation for this simple and fun card!
