Polaroid Plane

This card is inspired by the Pals Paper Arts challenge #300. Woah, congrats on 300 challenges!

PPA-300-May12

I love this layout. It was so easy to come up with ideas, I probably could have made about 10 cards using this layout. Someday I probably will. What a great sketch!

I started out with an exact square with a thin border all the way around it, but once I stamped the plane and started adding color, I realized it needed to be a polaroid shaped frame instead of square.

The plane stamp is from The Sky is the Limit stamp set from Stampin’ Up! I sponged Pool Party ink to make the sky color. I used Bermuda Bay and Crushed Curry Markers to color the body of the plane (these colors look way more vibrant in these photos than they are in real life for some reason). I used a sentiment from the And Many More stamp set from Stampin’ Up! The background stripe is from It’s My Party Designer Series Paper Stack, also from Stampin’ Up!

The sentiment could easily be switched out and this could make a great Father’s Day card or masculine birthday card.

This plane stamp always reminds me of my uncle, who loves planes and loves to visit Oshkosh for the annual plane show, and basically taught me everything I know (and several things I have forgotten) about planes. He has a great t-shirt that has an image of a plane on floats, and another plane similar to the one above. It is captioned, “See plane, buy plane.”
