Hello there! I wanted to share this birthday card that I made for my dad's birthday a couple of weeks ago. I used the retired SAB set Sky Is The Limit, which was perfect for him:) I started with a Lost Lagoon base and added a piece of DSP from the Neutrals DSP Stack. On top of that I added a layer of DSP from the Going Places DSP Stack.

On top of that I added a layer of Sahara Sand Cardstock that I ran through the Big Shot using the World Traveler Embossing Folder. Next, I punched out a circle from a coordinating design from the Going Places DSP Stack, using the 2" Circle Punch, I think. I stamped the plane onto a piece of Lost Lagoon Cardstock using Basic Black Archival ink and cut it out with my Paper Snips. I used the Owl Builder Punch to make the propeller using Vellum Cardstock and the 1/16" Handheld Circle Punch to punch a hole in the center of the vellum & propeller. I attached it using a Mini Brad. I added a piece of Lost Lagoon Striped Ribbon with Tear & Tape.

I used the Cupcake Builder Punch to pop out a couple of clouds using Very Vanilla Cardstock and added them to the circle with Glue Dots. I attached the plane on top with Dimensionals and attached the circle to the card base with Dimensionals as well. I stamped the sentiment with Basic Black Archival ink onto Very Vanilla Cardstock and tucked it underneath the circle.

As I mentioned, the stamp set Sky Is the Limit is already retired, and most everything else on the card will be retiring at the end of the month as well. The Going Places DSP Stack, World Traveler Embossing Folder, Cupcake Builder Punch, Mini Brads, Lost Lagoon Cardstock & Ribbon and many circle punches will be going away May 31. Contact me to get what you want before they're gone for good! Thanks so much for stopping by:)
