National Aviation Day

You can Imagine. Dream. Fly with us today!  Using a variety of Core’dinations products I was able to create this fun card to celebrate National Aviation Day.
Core’dinations Supplies:
 The card base is a standard A2 cardbase, my favorite size, made from Core’dinations Distress Collection.  Of course, I distressed the edges a bit with my Sand It Gadget!
 The background is an embossed piece of Core’dinations Kraft-Core.  I sanded the embossed image down quite a bit and ran my green ink over the embossed/sanded image, leaving some of the Kraft-Core peeking through.
To create my sentiment, I trimmed up a Smooth CoreTag to fit in the corner.  I always save the trimmed off part of my CoreTags to use on other projects.
Tip of the day: Core’dinations Cardstock makes a sturdy base for stickers.  On my card, I adhered the cute airplane sticker to a sanded piece of the same base cardstock and then trimmed around the sticker.
