Old Plane

A man card to share today! (this is a scheduled post so hope Mr Blogger behaves himself - and will try to link up the post to a couple of challenges if I can get a good enough internet connection!)

I had some odd bits of card left over and remembered a layout seen on Pinterest so adapted it a little for my odd scraps.
The cardstock is all Stampin Up.

Embossed one large piece with a Houndstooth Check folder, then layered it onto white and blue.
Another scrap of blue was stamped with a background stamp which is so old I have no idea who's make it is (was originally on wood but now on EZ mount!) - I only stamped it because it looked a little 'flat'!

Layered a piece of dark red, added a sentiment and a couple of large black pearls.
The circle (another scrap) was embossed and then on the final bit of krafty coloured card I stamped the old Bi-plane using Raspberry pigment ink (which was the nearest colour I had to the red card) then fussy cut it and glued it on.

Quite pleased with this - a basic man card and another for the stash box!
