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.
