Best Daddy Ever


I was recently asked to make a Father's Day card from 2 little boys and this idea came into my head pretty quickly.  I thought the primary colours were perfect for kids and it turns out that the dad's father was a pilot so I definitely picked the right images!

I stamped, die cut and Copic coloured the Taylored Expressions airplanes and popped them up on foam tape.  The clouds are Papertrey Ink, the banners are Simon Says Stamp and the letters are Lawn Fawn.  It's bigger than usual - 5x7 - because mom wanted to make sure her little guys had plenty of room to each write a message.  :)  I'm going to enter this in the Father's Day challenge at the Paper Players and also the Father's Day/For a Guy challenge at the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge.





Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Papertrey Ink, (Textured White) Bazzill, (Bashful Blue) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Airplanes from Plane Awesome) Taylored Expressions, (Letters) Lawn Fawn
Inks:  (Versa Fine Onyx Black) Tsukineko
Dies:  (Airplanes) Taylored Expressions, (Clouds) Papertrey Ink, (Banners) Simon Says Stamp
Markers:  Copic
Twine:  (Charcoal) The Twinery

The banners flying from the back of the planes is such a great way to add the sentiment, Jen.

I wish I could give this card to my brother. He is into everything aeroplane since he was a very small boy. (now at age 57 still building and flying remote controlled aeroplanes!)
Your card is STUNNING Jen!
