I have very fond memories of flying a kite at my grandparent’s house as a child. They had a nice piece of property in a country setting surrounded by fields, pasture and woods. The field sat on a hill and was the best place to launch a kite. You just had to be careful not to step in a groundhog hole! I’m going to date myself here – when I was young, we didn’t have expensive, fancy kites. The kites we used were plastic with wooden dowels to form the support and you had to put them together. My grandmother would find a few fabric scraps and we would tie these onto the kite string. In my mind I can still clearly see the kite soar and sway in the wind. Wonderful memories!
Today’s card uses the Kite Delight stamp set. What happy images in this stamp set! I used a Night of Navy card base and added accents in Pool Party, Daffodil Delight and white. This birthday card would be suitable for a child, teen, man or woman. The card contains one die cut rectangle and colored and fussy cut images – nothing too difficult to handle.
You can find all the details to make this card on the project sheet linked below.
A product list is included at the bottom of this post if you’re interested in purchasing any of the items used to make this card.
