GOOD AFTERNOON FRIENDS! It’s that time of year again when My Favorite Things hosts it’s annual Card Design Superstar Contest. So this is my entry in the Clean & Simple Genius category. The overall the theme of the card is encouragement so I wanted it to be cheery and colorful. The images from the High Flying Adventure stamp set by My Favorite Things always make me smile so I thought it would be the perfect set for this card.
As always, I’ve linked the supplies below with compensated affiliate links used where possible at no cost to you.
Today’s project features:
- High Flying Adventure by My Favorite Things
- High Flying Adventure Die-namics by My Favorite Things

Step by Step for High Flying Adventure

- Cut a piece of Something Blue Prestige Cardstock to 4″ x 3″ and die cut with the Sending You Hugs Die-namics. Remove the letters.
- Cut a piece of white cardstock to 4″ x 5.25″ and position the Sending You Hugs Die-namics along the bottom. Run through your die-cut machine and remove the white letters.
- Apply a piece of 4″ wide double side adhesive to the back, covering the die cut words.
