Love You! Plane and Simple!


Hi there!

It’s almost Valentine’s Day so today I’m sharing the cute little airplane card I made for my husband, who happens to be a pilot!

Normally, I struggle a bit with masculine cards, so I always fall back to one of three things:

1) the obvious (like the airplane for the pilot),
2) something with food (everyone likes food), and/or
3) something with a pun (I love puns).

This card covers 2 of the 3!

To make this card, I started out by die cutting the little contrail of hearts out of a panel of white cardstock and backing it with a piece of red cardstock so that the hearts would show through.

Once that was ready, I stamped the airplane in Gina K Amalgam Obsidian ink on a separate piece of white cardstock. For the coloring, I used my Copic markers and chose some more masculine colors – green, orange, and brown. I die cut the airplane and added some Glossy Accents to the propeller and the wings. While the Glossy Accents was drying, I stamped my sentiment in Gina K Dark Chocolate ink onto the panel with the heart contrail. I added foam adhesive to the back and popped it up on my card front.
Once the Glossy Accents was dry, I added some foam tape to the back of the airplane and adhered it to the card front. Ta Da! Super easy, and I know my husband will love it! Hope you have a wonderfully creative day!

I fell in love with card-making many years ago and I’ve been hooked on it ever since. I love trying out new techniques and finding the perfect color combination for whatever I’m creating.

By nature, I am an uber-organizer and a steadfast planner, but as you’ll see, my creations are much more fluid. And while I love color theory, the concept of lights and shadows, and the importance of depth and perspective – these are not things I worry about when it comes to my creations.

I simply find joy in creating and delight in sharing.

I hope that by sharing my cards and other art with you here on my blog I can inspire you to create something you love!
