Good afternoon!
Here is the first of two cards which I am going to enter the LESS IS MORE CHALLENGE 'Vehicles':

I used Stampin' Up! The Sky Is The Limit stamp set and World Traveler embossing folder (both retired). I only stamped up part of the planes 'contrails' - had to look this word up as I didn't know what to call it! Apparently.....Those white streaks planes leave behind are actually artificial clouds. They're called contrails, which is a shortened version of the phrase “condensation trail." Airplane engines produce exhaust, just like car engines do. As hot exhaust gases escape from a plane, the water vapor in the fumes hits the air. So there you go!!!
Anyway I digress - then I coloured in my contrails with a chalk marker and circled my sentiment with a Stampin' Write marker but felt that it was too bold so I tried to soften it slightly with the chalk marker. This probably ruined the card but I will be back with my second entry shortly.



  1. What a fabulous embossed background, Eve! Such an effective backdrop to the aeroplane and its message, and giving a super vintage feel to the card. Thanks so much for playing along with us at Less is More :)

  2. Terrific card. Thanks for sharing at Less is More!

  3. Super card, Eve, what a great embossing folder! Love the stamp and how you've added the contrails. xx

  4. Great use of your embossing folder and stamps for this unique, creative card! I don't think your use of chalk marker ruined the card but adds a nice touch! Well done! Thanks for joining us at Less Is More!

  5. Love this embossed background, perfect backdrop for your vintage plane.
    Thanks so much for sharing with us at Less is More, Anita x


Hi there,
