Thankfully Thinking of You Thursday - Mountain Air Bundle (#153820)


Let’s make some Thank You cards with 
Mountain Air Bundle (#153820)!

Today’s purpose...
is to think about the people in our lives who we are thankful for.  Has someone inspired you, given you great service, been there for you?  Here's a chance to create a little surprise for them and tell them that you appreciate them.  

Technique...
Continuing on with the Mountain Air Bundle (#153820), I am going to show you a fun technique to create a sky background for the beautiful scenery.

The Cards...

Card 1
To create the sky background, I used the sun/moon stamp from the Mountain Air Bundle.  I stamped off on my grid paper before I stamped onto the cardstock.  I filled up the sky with the three colours.




The Measurements...
Card Base - Mint Macaron Cardstock - 8 1/2 x 5 1/2, folded in half
Front Layer - Whisper White Cardstock - 4 x 5 1/4
Sentiment Strip - Ornate Layer Dies - Mint Macaron Cardstock - 3 1/4 x 2
Front Layer - tree - Night of Navy Cardstock - 4 x 1 3/4

Front Layer - tree - Pool Party Cardstock - 4 x 1 3/4
Front Layer - raised tree - Mint Macaron Cardstock - 1 x 2 1/4
Card Insert - Stitched Rectangle Die - Whisper White Cardstock - 4 x 5 1/4

The Products...







Card 2
The sky and the first layer of trees were stamped onto the Whisper White cardstock and the rest of the tree layers were stamped onto Sahara Sand cardstock, and cut out with the die.  The front trees were also stamped onto Sahara Sand cardstock and cut out with the dies.





The Measurements...
Card Base - Cajun Craze Cardstock - 8 1/2 x 5 1/2, folded in half
Front Layer - Sahara Sand Cardstock - 4 x 5 1/4

Card 3
I liked the look of the second card, however, I wanted to try using all Whisper White, instead of stamping on Sahara Sand.  I think it is a little brighter looking.






The Measurements...
Card Base - Cajun Craze Cardstock - 8 1/2 x 5 1/2, folded in half
Front Layer - Whisper White Cardstock - 4 x 5 1/4
Front Strip - Ornate Layers Dies - Pool Party Cardstock - 4 x 1
Front Layer - smaller tree - Granny Apple Green Ink - 1 x 2 1/4
Front Layer - smaller tree - Mossy Meadow Ink - 1  x 2 1/4
Front Layer - larger trees - Cajun Craze - 1 1/4 x 2 1/2
Card Insert - Whisper White Cardstock - 4 x 5 1/4

Card 4
I got thinking that the former cards were very "fall-ish" and we are only starting spring.  What about doing the same layout with some spring colours instead?  I also stamped on Very Vanilla instead of Whisper White to give a softer look.  
I think it gives it the look of a sunset.




The Measurements...
Card Base - Rococo Rose Cardstock - 8 1/2 x 5 1/2, folded in half
Front Layer - Very Vanilla Cardstock - 4 x 5 1/4
Front Strip - Very Vanilla Cardstock - 3 7/8 x 5 3/8
Front Layer - smaller tree - Terracotta Tile Ink - 1 x 2 1/4
Front Layer - smaller tree - Terracotta Tile Ink (stamped off) - 1  x 2 1/4
Front Layer - larger trees - Rococo Rose Ink - 1 1/4 x 2 1/2
Card Insert - Very Vanilla Cardstock - 4 x 5 1/4

Card 5
I made the last card because I had the left over Mint Macaron strip from the first card.  I also wanted to try stamping on Whisper White and see how it looked.  I also added in some Mint Macaron trees.  I wanted to see what the card would look like without the focal point being the larger, raised trees.





The Measurements...
Card Base - Mint Macaron Cardstock - 8 1/2 x 5 1/2, folded in half
Front Layer - Whisper White Cardstock - 4 1/8 x 5 3/8
Front Layer - Whisper White Cardstock - 4 x 5 1/4
Sentiment Strip - Mint Macaron Cardstock - 1 1/2 x 1 3/4
Card Insert - Very Vanilla Cardstock - 4 x 5 1/4
