Manly Plane

Just a reminder that there are only a few days left to order from the Occasions Mini Catalog!  This card features one of the stamp sets, Plane & Simple, that can be found in the Occasions Mini Catalog (page 40).  The idea for this card came from CAutrey over on Splitcoaststampers.  See her card HERE.  

The background is Very Vanilla run through the Big Shot with the Square Lattice Textured Embossing Folder and then sponged with Chocolate Chip.  The smaller Chocolate Chip layer was scrunched into a ball and then flattened to give a little texture.  The 'button' on the banner is actually a brad from the Vintage Trinkets collection.  I stamped the plane image with Chocolate Chip and then punched out with the 2 1/2" Circle Punch.  I also sponged and distressed the edges of the circle.  

And as a final touch, I added a thin layer of Crystal Effects over the plane.  

It's always hard to make masculine cards, but I liked the way the way this one turned out.   I'm planning to make up a few extra of these to use as Father's Day cards for this year. 

Thanks for stopping by!
