CPS98 Birthday


Happy Saturday, everyone!  We have a pretty relaxing day today, just a birthday party to attend, so I decided to make a card for the recipient!  His dad was a pilot in WWII, and actually owned a plane after the war.  Our friend said he grew up assuming that everyone had a plane in their backyard!!!  I thought the new SU set Plane and Simple would be great for his card, and I got a chance to use some new paper that a sweet friend gave me!  So here we go!  I used the CPS challenge #98 shown here:


but instead of using a circle, I used a rectangle and made this a tab card---buckle card----not sure what you call it!  You decide:


You slip the end from beneath the vertical panel and it opens like this:


And here’s the inside:


Hope he likes it!  Have a great day!

LeAnne, what a perfect stamp choice for your birthday card. Love the way you changed up the sketch a little to incorporate the plane. Fabulous job - as always.

Super card! Don't have an airplane stamp, but just purchased a locomotive. Hmmmm.... I'm thinking I could incorporate your idea using a train theme. Thanks for the inspiration.

Hi LeAnne
It is hard to come up with "guy" cards sometimes. This is a great idea!
