MCT 62nd Edition Sneak Peek #2

Are you ready for another day of My Creative Time sneak peeks?  Today we have a sweet new set to share with you called Love is in the Air!  This set is perfect for Valentine's Day, everyday love messages, and, as you can see with my card, even graduation!


To start this card, I die cut 11 of the sun rays from You Are My Sunshine and adhered them to a square of printer paper that I had covered with adhesive.  I then die cut the sun from You Are My Sunshine from one corner and inserted a white die cut sun into the resulting empty space.  After that I die cut a square around the whole thing with one of the Stitched Squares Inside & Out.  Finally, I die cut a rectangle using one of the Stitched Rectangular Frame Dies, with another one of the squares die cut from the middle of it.  I was then able to nestle the square with the rays and sun into that inner square!

Love is in the Air comes with the cutest hot air balloon stamp with a coordinating die, along with little heart stamps and dies too!  I colored them with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens.  The sentiment, "Oh the places you will go," is also from this set.  I thought it would be perfect for a graduation card, so I added "happy graduation" from More Chocolate Greetings.

How did you ever come up with such a great idea using the rays and sun? I will have to give this cool idea a try...I love it and some lucky grad will get this card! I agree...the hot air balloon in this set is the cutest! I like the dimension your balloon has and the sweet little hearts. Wonderful job.
