The Sky's the Limit

Happy Friday!  It's Jeanne today and I have a fun card using the Fox in Airplane die from the new Springtime release.

This little pilot really caught my eye.  Not only do we have a few pilots in our family, but this works well with encouraging or congratulatory "sky high" type sentiments!

 I started with a sketch from Splitcoaststampers that I rotated 90 degrees.

I went through my scrap box and picked out scraps that coordinated with the papers I wanted to use. Then I cut the pilot and plane from the Fox in Airplane die and the sun and clouds using the older Spring Frogs die.  I used vellum for the windshield.

My card and base is 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches.  I cut my base panel from striped paper and two other squares 4 1/4 inches square and 4 3/8 inches square.

I glued the two small panels together and added my sentiment strip (3/4 x 5 1/2 inches) and sun to the panels.

 I trimmed my sun flush with the panels...

... then after gluing that to the base panel, I added the clouds and trimmed the banner flush with the base panel. 

 To add dimension I popped up the plane using foam strips.  I am one of those who uses A LOT of foam strips.  I like my popped up images to feel solid.  But this is purely a personal preference.

 My pilot is taking to the skies!
