Welcome all. Today I have a male birthday card to show you. I was in a bit of a rush to get it done so kept it relatively simple. I found a digital image of a plane as he does fly so I thought he would appreciate that and I used an embossing folder which was a recent freebie with a magazine.
I started with a white square card and used the embossing folder on the front of it. I gave the embossing some colour with Distress Inks in Tumbled Glass and Stormy Sky which I applied with some blending foam.
I then die cut the digital image with an XCut circle die. I cut a cloud shape from a piece of copy paper and using Distress Ink in Tumbled Glass I gradually built up the clouds round the plane using blending foam. I then gave the plane a bit of extra shading with a black Spectrum Noir pencil and then adhered it to the card front.
I finished by using the Tumbled Glass and Stormy Sky on a snippet of white card and then die cut the sentiment having first used some Stick It adhesive on the back.
Before I go today I would like to introduce two new followers who are Anne who you will find here, and Judy whose blog you will find here. Both ladies are fabulous cardmakers with quite different styles but do beautiful work and I'm sure they would love you to go and visit them.
Thank you for coming by today.
