When I first saw this set I knew it was going to be top of my list to get! And considering it is a limited edition Saleabration item – only available until February 15 – I didn’t waste time.
I just love how versatile this set is.
I have a lot of birthdays coming up – but my Grandad turns 92 at the end of January – thats quite an achievement, so it deserves something a little bit special! I wanted to make something with a vintage feel and I knew this set would be perfect. Of course I had to combine it with the Large number dies in gold foil paper to make it really stand out!
I used paper from the Going Places Designer Paper Stack. Initially I was going to tear the edges to give it a more vintage feel – but I decided to use a match and burn parts of the paper like we used to for school projects! I then inked the edges in Soft Suede and sponged lightly over the paper.
Its a bit hard to tell, but that aeroplane is actually popping off the page on one side – giving it the appearance of flying off the card. I used a 1″ x 1/4″ strip, scored at 1/4″ each end and folded in a ‘z’ and adhered it between two cut out stamped images of the plane. I then adhered the other side with a dab of tombow. That way, the plane will still sit flat for postage.
The sentiment and stamped map of the world behind the plane, come from the Going Global stamp set. The world image is stamped directly onto a piece of designer paper from the Going Places Paper stack.
And don’t forget to decorate the inside of your cards too!
I hope you enjoyed this creation!
