High Flying Birthday!
This birthday card features the recipient's favorite pastime... flying. Working on getting his pilot's license, this young man often has his head in the clouds.
I don't need to give a lot of narrative about this one because it's self-explanatory. Both plane and banner are cut at size 3. I played around with trying to extend it in length using my Gypsy but the layers were just not matching up properly. After wasting far too much time trying to elongate the plane, I went with the shape, as is.
On the front, I used real cloud paper. But inside, I created my own cloud background using ink and masking a cloud shape. The verse inside was created on my computer, printed onto white cardstock and then inked as described. Hope you like it! Note: My camera lighting is not very good today as it's a dark rainy day and I couldn't get it right. The first pic is more true to colour.
