The Sky is The Limit CAS Birthday (and Valentine's Day) Card





This is my favorite Sale-A-Bration product....[the] Sky is The Limit stamp set.  It's great for masculine birthday cards, Valentine's Day cards and graduation cards.  You can receive this stamp set FREE with a $50 order during Sale-A-Bration which happens to start tomorrow!

Tip:
  • You don't have to stick with a 1/4 inch border for your layers.  Experiment with wider or more narrow borders.  I chose a 1/2 inch border for this one to tone down the white layer a  little.
  • When fussy-cutting an image like the airplane, cut away the excess paper before you get into the "detailed" cutting.  Then, turn your paper instead of the scissors.  The plane actually wasn't as hard to cut out as I thought it would be.  I used dimensionals (had to cut some of those smaller) to pop it up.
  • The card also looks good just stamping plane directly to the front as in the second picture.  Make sure you stamp it closer to the edge so you'll have room for the heart image behind it.
