The Aviator

With Father's Day coming before you know it, Jan's Digital Stamp Shop's newest release is sure to be a big hit.

The Aviator has an amazing old truck, man's best friend (both in and out of the truck) and several sentiments. 

Here's what I came up with for my project card:

I reversed my image because I wanted to use the Gina Marie Designs Drop Pendant as if to show 'motion' on the card.  Isn't that a fun thing to do when we're using digital files?

I used Copic markers for coloring this fun image.  After die cutting the image and the 'Happy Father's Day' I added them to a 4" x 6" card base covered in a multi strip paper.    With my card base being a top fold, then I added the blue twine and the tiny clock - perfect for a masculine card. Although you can't see it well in the photo, I added glossy accents to the truck window.  This is a great addition to 'auto' cards, just be sure to do this last and let it dry overnight.
