Hello and Welcome Spring!!
I wanted to create a masculine card for my hubby and this is what I came up with.
I just love this Cloud Edger Stencil from ACLD.

So here's what I did to create my card.
  • I began by cutting a white cardstock panel that was 3 3/4 x 5" and got out my Cloud Edger stencil and some Distress Oxide inks.
  • Beginning at the top, I positioned the stencil and rubbed on some Salty Ocean DOX ink, moved the stencil down a bit and added more of that ink.  
  • Next I moved the stencil down a bit and added just a hint of Blueprint Sketch ink.  
  • I continued working my way down the white cardstock using some Carved Pumpkin, Mustard Seed, a hint of Cracked Pistachio and then finally a good dose of Peacock Feathers DOX ink along the bottom.
  • While my cloud background dried, I stamped the airplane with some black Versafine Clair ink and die cut it out.
  • I stamped the sentiment from the same set, cut it out and glued it onto a piece of light blue cardstock.
  • I positioned the airplane and stamped the heart trail with some black ink.
  • I glued the cloud background onto another piece of blue cardstock, then onto a white cardstock base.
  • I pop dotted the plane in the sky and then pop dotted the sentiment in the bottom corner.

Here is the stencil I used:

This is absolutely gorgeous Karen and your husband will love it. The colours of all the clouds look great together and the plane just stamped and left white with the complementary black on white sentiment look perfect over the top. x
