You are just Plane awesome
We have been complaining so much about how user-unfriendly the LD site has become that it is easy to forget that they actually have a lot of great deals. Sure, it's a little hard to find the good stuff these days but let's not forget that LD can be quite crazy when it comes to markdowns.
I was browsing their 75% off Valentine sale this morning when I came across Objections of My Affection (CS). Even though the product preview shows 4 images, the set actually comes with 23 SVGs! OMG! That's a lot of files and I'm not even counting those that comes with multiple images. For only $1.25. It's one heck of a deal!
I'm thrilled that the set comes with so many designs, and I love that they are even accompanied by sentiments. Coming up with the right greeting can be a challenge sometimes so I appreciate that LD has already done all the thinking here. I'd rather be spending more time making cards than to figure out what greeting goes with what image.
The idea for today's card came entirely from that LD set. I printed the sentiment and the shadow of the paper plane and used a metal die to cut out the card front. For the paper-plane itself, I filled it with various LD papers, then printed and hand-cut out. If you like, you can definitely use your Cameo to print-and-cut the paper plane too.
This card was so easy to make I ended up making a whole bunch of them in a very short time. If you can only buy one SVG set this month, get Objections of My Affection. It's only $1.25 and I think it's totally worth it.
