Up, Up & Away!

Hi everyone! Happy Wednesday!

It's time for another MFT Wednesday Sketch!! I can't believe we are already up to Sketch #7! WOW!



It's no surprise that I LOVE this week's sketch...I love them all! I had alot of fun with this one, and with all the sentiment sets in my stamping arsenal, you can bet I'll be using this sketch again and again!


For my card today I used the GORGEOUS Great Outdoors Sentiments set from My Favorite Things. I LOVE how the sentiments in this set pair PERFECTLY with the Die-Namics Dies! I knew I wanted to use the new Die-Namics Fly A Kite Die, so the "Up Up & Away" sentiment from Great Outdoors Sentiments was perfect!

I cut the kite out of Choice Snow White Cardstock, and then ran it through my Cuttlebug a few more times with different papers from the Little Girl Collection from Echo Park Papers. I then simply assembled the panels on my kite.

I used a piece of Baker's Twine for the kite "tail" and attached it to the card in a loop with the bows cut from cardstock. I added a twinkle to the center of each bow, as well as to the center of the kite. I embossed the background with the Polka Dots Embossing Folder and sewed all the panels on my sewing machine.


I kept the inside quite simple, with just a piece of patterned paper from the same collection, more stitching, and this time, I used the "go fly a kite" sentiment, also from Great Outdoors Sentiments. LOVE that!

Here are the Die-Namics I've used on my card today:
