Send me Soaring for the Stampin' Queens

Can you believe it??? This is my 600th post!!!!

So yesterday, I showed you the card I made for my hubby for Valentine's Day. Then, I told you that you couldn't have it.

Today, I'm showing you the card I made for youngest DS for Valentine's Day. Again, you can't have it - LOL!

When youngest DS saw the card I made for hubby, he asked if I had made him one too. Ummm...nope! OOPS! I asked if he'd like for me to make him one and he said yes.

Since I still had Send me Soaring out on the table (and the Just Add Cake DSP too, by the way), I decided to go with that.

Since today is Stampin' Queens Day, I used this sketch:

but I changed it up a little bit and made it square. Let me tell you, this one gave me a heck of a time! I think when Cristena makes these things up, she needs more coffee in her system or SOMETHING - sheesh!!! Fortunately, I've seen the sketches for the next few months and none look THIS difficult - PHEW!!!

Here's the card I created:

I started off with a 5 x 5" card base and added a piece of Just Add Cake Designer Series Paper, a layer of Whisper White Cardstock and then the little banners/flags. I stamped the main image using the clouds and kites (had to use a heart one of course) and adhered it using Stampin' Dimensionals.

Thanks to Ann Schach for her awesome tip of microwaving our Seam Binding! Who knew?

  1. Wow...what a wonderful card, Christyne! You did a fabulous job with this sketch...your stamp set and paper are the perfect choices. And your crinkly ribbon is awesome! Hooray for the microwave!

  2. You go girl! It won't be long before you are in the quadruple digits.
