Above the Clouds Handmade Card and Punch Tip

Above-the-clouds-caseToday's project and video tutorial is a handmade card and punch tip using the Above the Clouds Bundle from the Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog.

As mentioned in this video, this stamp set and coordinating punch was so appealing to me with this sentiment alone!  It is the reason that I purchased this bundle.  Is that ever the case for you?  Does a stamp set make it to your "wish list" because it contains a sentiment that you know you'll use over and over?  This is what draws me to many of the stamp sets that I've purchased for my collection. 

You will notice that this card has a clean design and can be assembled easily.  Let's take a look at the how-to video tutorial!
