Vintage Planes for Father's Day

Time to make another Father’s Day card as we celebrate on Sunday! I was inspired by the Off the Edge challenge and pulled out my Carta Bella Adventure is Out There stamp set and the matching Vintage Airplane Stencil.  With a little Memento Luxe Rich Cocoa on both the image and through the stencil I created a cohesive look. What is fun about a stencil is I could make the planes go the opposite direction from the stamped image.  In all honesty, I stenciled the images and then decided to redo the process so I could leave room for the sentiment.  The sentiment is an old Studio G set and is stamped in Memento Luxe Nautical Blue.  The airplane image is heat embossed with clear embossing powder and die cut with the matching die.  After mounting the plane image on the blue cardstock I added the dotted ribbon to ground the plane.  Before adhering the front panels to the card base I sponged Memento Luxe in Nautical Blue and Rich Cocoa around the edges to contrast the card front.
