Masculine Birthday Card

I always seem to need masculine cards but very rarely have one ready to go when I need it. Today is my dad's birthday and since he works in the airplane industry I felt like this card would be appropriate for him.

I decided to create a scene beginning with the Frantic Stamper Spitfire plane die. I wanted a masculine paper for the plane, so as I was looking through my stash of papers, I found an old piece of map paper and thought I'd try that out.  I inserted gray cardstock in most of the pieces that cut out of the die for a little contrast and was happy with the final result.  For the sentiment I used a stamp from Frantic Stampers Wavy Banners & Greetings clear stamp set.  I really like how crisp & clear it stamped.

I cut my bokeh paper, that I felt made it look like it was flying at night, at an angle and backed it with black paper.  I die cut some clouds from the Village Sky set and added them to my sky background.  I popped the airplane up with dimensionals.  

 Thank you for visiting!


  1. Love how you used the patterned paper. Going to need to CASE this one for sure!

  2. Now you've tempted me to buy this die, what an original way to use it! I really like your card, thanks for the inspiration x
