MCT Made In Minutes: Paper Plane Birthday Card

by Veronica

I have a confession: very FEW of my projects are actually "Made In Minutes". I mean, they could be made in minutes if I didn't hem and haw over the design for a half hour...

This simple little card is for my Dad's birthday today. Yep, he's a St. Paddy's baby.

 Leaving a lot of 'base card' around the edges gives this card a crisp look, but the popping up of layers adds a lot of dimension and interest.

MCT Products Used
Stitched 3 x 4 Journal Die
Fun Paper Airplane Die
Fly Away With Me Sentiments
Stitched Party Dies (balloon)

Thanks for stopping by to check out my Made In Minutes project today. You can see more fabulously quick projects from the Design Team on Emma's blog.

I hope you were inspired!

  9. Veronica ~ Okay I LOVE the card and I do love how CAS it is! But am I seeing this correctly ~ did you fold the plane to give it dimension ~ BRILLIANT idea! OMG!!! Seriously WOW! Happy Birthday to your daddy too!

    1. LOL. Nope, I didn't fold it - that's just my so-so coloring job you're seeing. :o) I also 'inserted' the string into the center of the die so it looks like it's in the 'fold' of the plane.

  10. What a cute card! I love how you made the plane look 3D! I bet your dad loved it! Happy birthday to him!! Hugs!
