Paper Pros June Challenge - Masculine Birthday Cards

Hello Crafters
I am back with another Paper Pros Challenge and this month Shelly chose "Masculine Birthday Cards ". 

Of course I am still excited to be playing with the KB Riley Dies that I purchased the other month and slowly but surely ticking off all the dies. 

This card was made using the Popular "Twist Panel Pop Up"
which is on PRE ORDER at Crafts U Love HERE
there is currently a Discount on all Pre Orders so get ordering now
as there are some fantastic savings.
Also you can get this one from www.karenburniston.com 
I have decorated the top and bottom of the card with the Nature Edges
This set of 3 border dies will be used time and time again I can feel it.

I have to admit to cutting the background paper first, it was masculine
in theme and colour but I had no clue where I was going with this card
and it nearly ended up in the bin.  True to form LAST MINUTE.com
I was only making this last night, the night before the deadline! LOL
And whilst it is a "Relaxed" challenge in that it is just friends 
who are creating to a theme, I really wanted to make a card
last night so it made sense to stick with it.

This card shape is very popular and Karen did devise a way last year to make one using another one of her dies.  Whilst this and also cutting your own works, oh my! it is a faff I really could do without and using this die set is so simple.  Also the fact you get decorator dies to finish it off it really is a no brainer!  Look at the height and dimension on this card and yep it will fit in an envelope.

So having made the card I didn't know what to decorate the panels with, sitting there in front of me on my wooden stamp unit I saw this plane I thought it would be perfect to use.  I did not worry too much that the plane is not stamped perfectly spaced across the panels you can get the general idea and it works really well.

I coloured most of it in with the Nuvo Aqua Flow brushes, I adore these to colour with.  HERE  and stamped onto this paper HERE its a nice weight to colour and die cuts lovely too.

I do hope that you have liked looking at my card today.
Hope to be back soon.
Happy Crafting
