Valentine's Card No. 5

My husband works at Boeing.  His first word was "plane".  We do a lot of airplane themed things in our lives.  Kieran had a great many baby items with planes on them.  There might be a Lego 787 model atop one of our bookcases.  You get the idea.  So, I use this little airplane with heart contrail stamp often for Valentine's day.  Here, I first used an embossing folder on the yellow to make a sun like background.  Then, I stamped the plane.  I did liquid appliqué over the contrail.  Once heated, it puffs up like clouds (or snow).  It's a useful little embellishment product.    I stamped the plane a second time on a scrap piece of cardstock, colored it, cut it out with detail scissors, and applied it directly over the same image stamped on the yellow.  I die cut the clouds out of pink gingham.  I was going for an overall Valentine's sort of color theme, but I was also thinking of a sunset or sunrise with the pink clouds.  I used mounting tape to pop the clouds up for dimension and then added the sentiment and little jewel stickers.  The inside says, "happy valentine's day".

  1. Oh my gosh! You have got to be kidding me - LIQUID APPLIQUE for the condensation trail! AND SHAPED LIKE A HEART NONE THE LESS?! Excuse me while I pick my teeth up off the floor - brilliant!
