4/05/2016: This card was selected for the Artist's Pick Award at Hand Stamped Sentiments!
Coming from an aviation family means that I always notice stamps with airplanes. I've had this stamp and die set for a long time and finally was inspired to use the set for a birthday card when I saw the Hand Stamped Sentiments Sketch Challenge #234.
The airplane was stamped, colored and die cut. The sentiment was stamped, die cut and matted. The clouds were die cut. The trees were stamped and fussy cut. The hearts came from a punch. Everything was assembled and adhered onto a panel of cardstock. The plane, two clouds and sentiment were backed with foam tape and popped up for dimension. The hanger for the sign was hand drawn. The inside of the card was lined with a panel of cardstock and hearts were adhered.
Be sure to stop by the HSSSK234 blog to view the challenge!
