FIL Birthday Card!

Quick post to show you the card I made (and a spare) for my FIL back in August :) I wanted to use the new die I had from IO - DIE186-G, which is a plane and banner die. 

I cut a cloudy edge from scrap card and used faded jeans distress ink and a blender tool to make a repeat mask for the sky. I then cut 6 red, then 6 white planes using the die, and cut the central section from the white and placed on top of the red, then added wheels and propellers in pen. I printed out the greetings and then die cut them using the banner die. They were 3D foamed onto the sky, which I matted onto red, and then onto the card blank.


  1. These are gorgeous cards! and I love the background!

  2. I love how the sky turned out, lovely and great idea. The planes are so lovely and clever to cut them in two and use two colours, makes them pop more, lovely card, I am sure FIL was thrilled with this one, lots of hugs, Marion

  3. Very nice! Your background looks amazing! I love your new die! Sorry I haven't been here in a while - playing catch-up today!
