Thank You Takes Flight
Today's card I made as a thank you for my son's birthday party. He actually had a Toy Story themed party but I didn't have anything I could use with that theme for a thank you card so what better than a little red airplane. I think this is one of the favorites of the cricut cards I've done. I got to use 2 of the new carts I got for Christmas on this card, Wall Decor and More and Hoot n Holler. I also used some paper I didn't even remember I had, see what happens when you decide to go through and clean out some stuff in your stamp room. So onto the details...
I started with the white base and layered it with kraft cardstock I ran through the cuttlebug. I cut a 1 3/4 in piece of cloud paper (who knows where it came from) and layered it with white and added the scallop trim border to the bottom. I then cut the plane out from wall decor and more on the shadow feature and cut it at 2 inches. I sponged the plane with some real red ink and stamped the sentiment on the side. My finishing touch to the plane was the little white brad in wheel. The trees were cut from Hoot N Holler at 1 1/2 inches with all its layers. The grass was from Straight from the nest at 1 1/4 inch.
Thanks for stopping and I hope you like this card as much as I do. Have a wonderful day
