Spitfire Birthday Card

Hi all,

Today I am sharing a card I made for my Uncle. He has always loved aeroplanes so when I saw the Hobby Arts Fly Past set I had to buy it!



I started off by stamping the plane onto Copic Xpress It blending card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I then coloured it with Copic markers and cut it out. Using a Spellbinders Classic Oval I die cut a piece of white cardstock and sponged it before removing the oval from the die. I adhered the plane inside the oval using a Sakura Quickie glue pen. I then went on to die cut two more ovals and one scalloped oval from red, blue and white cardstock. I matted these altogether to create my focal image.
For the sentiment I die cut some white cardstock using a Spellbinders Labels Trio die and sponged with Memento Summer Sky ink to match my focal image. I then stamped the Happy Birthday and Uncle sentiments using Versafine Onyx Black ink.
I wrapped some Airmail bakers twine around my powder blue cardstock and embellished with a button. I rounded the corners of my powder blue layer and my card base and then I then matted them together. I adhered on the focal image and sentiment and finished off with some red rhinestones to the corners.

I am entering this card into two challenges CAS-ual Fridays Make your Mark Challenge as I used Copics to colour the plane and Simon Says Stamp Anything Goes Challenge.
