Hi everyone, this is a card I made for my husband's birthday. This is also another entry for the Free for All Friday Challenge F4A642 from June of 'All About Dad'. Make a Father's Day card or a masculine card. Either one will be fine. There are no time limits to SCS Challenges so you can play anytime. Please see this link for the details on the Challenge---> F4A642 06/10/22 All About Dad by wannabcre8tive at Splitcoaststampers
The main image is by Lili of the Valley (UK) and is a pre-coloured digital image which I bought from their Etsy Store and is called: Simply Print Biplane.
I layered the image onto some kraft cardstock then onto some blue designer paper from a Kaisercraft Workshop pad. I trimmed the edges with my Perfect Layers Tools to 1/16" and 1/8" respectively then popped the image panel up on dimensionals.
The background designer paper is also from the same paper pad. The punched kraft cardstock border is my old favourite - Fiskars Threading Water punch. I added the small strip of designer paper above the border just to add some definition between the beige paper and the punched border as I thought it just needed something.
The sentiment is also from the same paper pad. I added a copper brad on each side which is by Inque Boutique. I have had these brads for years. I don't see alot of cards with brads these days so I am guessing they are not in vogue - but I still love them and use them alot especially on masculine cards.
Once I had finished the card front, I glued it to a kraft card base.

Nice card. I really like your patterned paper choices with the airplane. Nice!
