Fly with Me!

(If you are looking for my Paper Smooches Sparks card, scroll down the post below!)

Hi! Today I am sharing a card I made using the pilot image from Aero Boy by Deasy Designs. This stamp set is great for making cards for kids, but I also think you can go a little vintage with this set, too, since the pilots all have the 1920's feel with their leather helmets.  I decided to use the cracked glass technique to make my main image look like an old photo.  To achieve this look, first stamp your image, color it, and ink the edges of the cardstock. Next, cover your entire panel with versamark and  then clear embossing powder. Heat the embossing powder and then cover the panel with versamark and clear embossing powder again- repeat several times. Last, pop your embossed panel in the freezer for a few minutes.  When you get it out, start bending it slightly in several places and it will crack!  To finish off my card, I added the "Fly with me" sentiment (also from Aero Boy) on a die cut banner (Papertrey Ink) and paired my image with some fun patterned paper from October Afternoon's Boarding Pass line.

 Here is a close up of the "cracked glass":
