Air Mail Birthday Card

Hi, Friends.....

I am here with a fun masculine card using a vintage-look airmail sticker.....perfect for this birthday card that I will be mailing. :)  I had this emboss-resist starry background in my reject pile on my craft table.  It hadn't turned out like I wanted for a different project a week or two ago, but I knew it would come in handy sometime soon!

My card is fairly self-explanatory, so I will just give you my supply list and make this post super-short!

Supplies used include the following:
Art Anthology - Twilight Stencil
Distress Ink - Stormy Sky, Chipped Sapphire, Black Soot
Versamark Ink
Embossing Powder-Translucent Sahara (Lost track of orig jar and can't remember what brand it is! Eeek!)
Sizzix - Circles, Scallop
My Favorite Things - Blueprints 7 die set
Waffle Flower - On My Mark stamp set
Versafine Ink - Majestic Blue
Darice - Diagonal Stripe Background

Thank you so much for stopping by.  I hope you stay cool in the heat!!  Have a wonderful weekend!
