Festive Friday: Lift Me Up

Sep 7, 2018 | Gratitude, Thank You & Thanksgiving Cards | 0 comments

Off we go, into the wild blue yonder!!

This week at Festive Friday we’re celebrating the 61st birthday of the United States Air Force  (it’s on September 18th). We thought it would be fun to pair up the festivity with the option to include clouds in your designs. There’s lots of fun ways to incorporate a cloudy look, so be sure to check out the Design Team’s ideas!

Play along at the Festive Friday Challenge - Earn Fest Points for free stuff! Find us @festivefridaychallenge or festivefridaychallenge.com. New challenges every other Friday! #cardchallenge

Looking for ideas – here’s a few:

  • Go classic Blue & Yellow – typical Air Force colors.
  • Add in some airplanes – stamps, diecuts or patterned paper. They can be vintage (for a nice masculine look), or cartoonish (for the kiddos)
  • Incorporate some uplifting sentiments – like “you lift me up” or, “reach for the sky”. I think even that flying piggy from Stampin’ Up!’s “this little piggy” set would qualify – don’t you?
  • Add in clouds in any sort of way – embossed, watercolored, stamped, diecut, sponged…. there’s lots of ways to achieve a cloud effect!

Don’t forget to leave a comment at the end of the post to qualify for my monthly giveaway!

My inspiration design features Air Force colors – blue & yellow – Blueberry Bushel and Daffodil Delight to be exact. I added in some clouds using the Pattern Party Decorative Masks and some embossing paste. It gives the design a lot of fun texture and is perfect for any thanks you might need to extend.
