Sending Sunshine Birthday Guy!

Free for All Friday with Border   

It’s another Friday and we're bringing you another round of inspiration created with our brand new December Release Stamp sets by the Senior Design Team. It’s always fun for us to show off the versatility of these beautiful sets one more time while you can still purchase the December New Release Bundle at a discount! Today is the last day this discount is available and we don’t want you to miss out!

If you haven't already checked out the three latest stamp sets for Flourishes... take a peek at these beauties...

Today I chose to feature two of the three new stamp sets, "Lots of Thought" and "Numbers in Blossom". 

I decided to create a Flying Easel card. This is the closest thing to a tutorial I could find for this style of card, HERE.  I used my Spellbinder "Labels 31" dies to create the same effect.
For my card base I used some Classic Kraft cardstock and then some Classic White for my frame and center panel.  For my central image, I stamped the sun& cloud image from the "April Showers" stamp set and then the little airplane and "Sending Sunshine" sentiment from the new "Lots of Thought" collection using black Memento ink.

When you open this style of easel card, the airplane remains hanging in the frame. I attached another cloud image to the back of the plane to match up with my central cloud.  I attached it to my frame with a piece of our Iridescent White String.  I thought fishing line would be perfect for this but I couldn't find any in the garage.

To complete the inside and the remainder of the card's greeting, I stamped the "Happy Birthday" from the new "Numbers in Blossom" stamp set at the bottom of the inside of my card.

To complete the package, I stamped and coloured an accompanying envelope to match my card...
I used the following Copic Collections & my Copic airbrush to colour all of the images within my card and envelope:
