Love is in the Air Valentine's Plane Banner Card- FREE Silhouette file - by Janet Packer (Crafting Quine). Originally published on http://craftingquine.blogspot.co.uk/2017/02/love-is-in-air-valentine-card-with-free.html

WHAT YOU'LL NEED:
  • Silhouette CAMEO® orPortrait®
  • White Printable Cardstock
  • Grey Heavyweight Pearl Cardstock
  • Vellum
  • Card Adhesive
  • Adhesive Foam Pads
  • Glossy Accents or similar
  • Silhouette Adhesive Corrugated Paper
  • Love Is In The Air file download by Silhouette #176413
  • Amazing Plane by Echo Park file download #125012
  • Cloud Borders file downloads #2320 #173527



Here are my construction steps:
  1. Make a rectangular card base in grey heavy-weight pearl cardstock in the Silhouette Design software.
  2. Adhere a large rectangle of white corrugated paper to the card base.
  3. In the software set up a Print and Cut page and arrange the plane elements to fit into a white rectangle. Add coloured frames or strips as required.  Add cut lines to the outside of the rectangle.
  4. Ungroup the quote and rearrange it to follow the line of the banner.
  5. Copy the plane and banner and add cut lines around the outside.
  6. Print and then cut out the elements on your Silhouette.
  7. Cut cloud borders from vellum (I used regular and pearlised vellum).
  8. Adhere the rectangles to the card with card adhesive.
  9. Adhere the smaller elements to the card with adhesive foam pads.
  10. Adhere the vellum cloud pieces obscuring the adhesive behind decorative strips of card or tuck the ends under the rectangular pieces.
  11. Add some glossy accents to the hearts.
  12. Card complete!

This makes for a fun valentine card.  You can change out the colours or materials for a more masculine or feminine look.
