Airplane Birthday

Today marks the start of another Die Cuttin' Divas Challenge!!
This weeks theme is
National Aviation Day!!
(create a project with a plane, helicopter or glider)


I created this card using Everyday Pop up Cards. The plane measures 2 1/2", the card base is 4 1/4" x 4 1/4" so it will fit in a standard envelope. A sweet little red bow and sentiment banner finishes off the card front.

 I embossed the blue layer (4" x 4") with a Darice embossing folders called "Cloudy Sky" and then inked it using a white ink pad.

I used a Hero Arts stamp from the Big Hugs set and hand cut the little "v" for the banner and made a matching mat with some black cardstock. Both the banner and the card base were embellished with my white gel pen "stitches".

I attached the plane body to the wing parts with a layer of pop dots and then attached both the plane and the banner to the card base with pop dots too. I just love all the dimension.

I finished off the inside of the card with another stamp from the Hero Art's Big Hugs stamp set. 

We'd love for you to come on over and play along with us at Die Cuttin' Divas!
