MCT: Trending Now

Hi, today we are creating projects that are Trending Now over on the My Creative Time blog. The trend we are working with today is, Wanderlust. A few definitions are: 1. A very strong or irresistible impulse to travel. 2. strong longing for or impulse toward wandering 3. the irresistible and overwhelming feeling to join nature, fresh air and high mountains by hiking or climbing. I chose to focus on the traveling and knew I wanted to use the ever so cute little paper airplane. 

My background map pattern paper was cut out using the Stitched Square Dies Inside & Out. Which I matted and created my card base around. Love these dies along with the Stitched Rectangular Frame dies. They make card making so much easier!! If you haven't gotten either of them yet, I highly recommend them!

I used Versamark ink along with Recollection's Gold embossing powder to stamp down my heart trail using the stamp from the Fun Paper Airplane die. I didn't have any gold glittery paper on hand, so I just made some with the same embossing powder. I then cut out the super cute little Fun Paper Airplane. Then I glued on a adorable little heart from the Seasonal Greetings stamp set. I cut out a few more and then added them all around my little paper airplane. 

I added the fun little banner using the Fun Stitched Tag dies. I then stamped the sentiment from The Sky Is The Limit Stamp Set onto the Trio Stitched Banner die. I added couple of glitter hearts to the banner using the Seasonal Greetings stamp set again. 

I finished by embellishing the card with some gold cord along with mini gold sequins.
