It was posting an old card as an entry for A Passion for Papertrey’s latest challenge that inspired this card.
That and the realisation that I have NO cards in the Birthday Card Book. Eeek….
Anyhow, this card is for my SIL who’s the next-but-one birthday. And no, I haven’t done the next birthday. Yet.
I have always seen this Papertrey Ink stamp as a male-card stamp. Oh so sexist of me. Particularly as it is so appropriate for a seasoned world traveller like SIL. She has hit every continent with the exception of Antartica – so all bets are off there ! She has also lived for a couple of years in Bolivia supporting missionary work, so I guess she’s clocked up a few miles on planes. However, I bet they were’t as bright as these (paws off the designs, Mr. Branson…!)
Images: plane and banner are Papertrey Ink’s Fly Away, city names are Inkadinkado
Inks: Planes are stamped with Versafine Black Onyx and coloured with Emboss pens and a silver gel pen, background is sponges with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink. Words are white embossed with detail powder.
Ribbon is 3mm satin wrapped around.
I learned a lot with this card. Most importantly that the clear Emboss pen ain’t. Clear – that is. It’s pale blue… but I’ll know for another time. And secondly, I REALLY should add a cloud die to the wish list. It’s just not as exciting as this, this or this….
