Father's Day Airplane Card

Hey everyone...Sonya here from Sonya's Paper Trail.  I've got a fun card to share today, it's a Father's Day card:

This one is for my Father In Law.  He's a big aviation enthusiast and I thought he'd like this card a lot.  The airplane cut is from the Silhouette Online Store.  It didn't come with a shadow cut, so I made my own by "assembling" the plane on my screen, then just creating a shadow.  It worked perfectly and gave more "bulk" to the plane.  I used a brad to hold the propeller down.  Notice the window?  I used Glossy Accents to make it look like it is a shiny piece of glass.  

The white piece of embossed paper has Liquid Pearls in the middle of each embossed swirl.  I just love when I can use this technique.  It sure adds some fun pizazz to a card.

And the best part of this card...all scraps!  I didn't cut into a single sheet of full sized paper to make this.  That makes me so happy!

Have a super day!

I just love your card. Creating the shadow really makes the plane pop, and the embossing is fabulous.

Sonya this card is just perfect. I love the embossing and the plane looks like it is ready to fly off the card. Thanks for sharing .
