Up in the Air with Karen Burniston and My Favorite Things

 Hello and welcome! Today's card uses Karen Burniston's Rockin' Rectangle die set and My Favorite Things Up in the Air stamp set. 

For this card, I started with an A2 size card base cut from heavy weight smooth white cardstock. I die cut three rectangle panels using the largest rectangle from the MFT A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX die set. I created the sky background on each rectangle die cut using Distress Oxide ink in Tumbled Glass and Salty Ocean

I stamped the images using Pink Fresh Studios Detail Black Ink and colored them in with Copic markers, then die cut them out with the coordinating dies. 

For the front of the card, I cut the panel for the window with one of the rectangles that comes in the set for the Rockin' Rectangle. I die cut two different grass hills using Karen Burniston's Long Nature Edges from two different colors of green cardstock. I colored in the trees with Copic markers to give them some detail. 

I die cut the stitched clouds from Karen Burniston's Outdoor Scene die set.

I stamped the You're Growing UP, UP, UP sentiment from the stamp set. 

I continued the same theme throughout the card for the background. I added a piece of thick acetate to the window and covered the edges with a scalloped stitched border that can be created with the dies that come in the Rockin' Rectangle die set.

The little bear and elephant riding in the balloon just make me smile! This will be a fun birthday card for a child! Thank you so much for stopping by and Happy Crafting!
