There are several blog challenges right now that are excellent to combine. I made this card for some of them and even though the colors and design are rather out of my comfort zone, Iím really happy with this card. Another great thing is that I got the paper used in my monthly kit from Scraplagret and would probably not have ordered them myself. But now I had great use of them - they were just perfect for these challenges.
One challenge was to use trains and planes. I made this cuties with a template my daughter used to play with as a child. Cut the shapes out and heat embossed them clear for some extra texture and shine. Love how sturdy the paper gets when you heat emboss it.
Another challenge was to use a sentiment for a boy or a man. I found this one on the internet and printed it. Isnít it a sweet sentiment? I heat embossed the sign aswell, but it doesnít show since I had to take the picture in an angel to get rid of the shine, otherwise you wouldnít be able to read the text. A pretty little tag from Graphic45. I used the back, added the brown enforcement to make it look even more like a tag and a tiny plane from Studio Calico. A plain dark blue cotton ribbon and a lovely metal star finish this card off perfectly.
