Plane & Simple

I'm always in need of masculine cards. Since my husband is a corporate pilot, I had to purchase the Plane & Simple stamp set in the Occasions Mini Catalog. And the card is as simple as the name of the stamp set!

To fit the vintage feel of the airplane, I lightly sponged all card stock with Soft Suede ink. Somehow, Soft Suede seems to be perfect for vintage-themed cards. Since I love the vintage look, I use it a lot. Yet, the funny thing is that I don't really like the color by itself. And, of course, the tearing is another technique that adds to the aged appearance.
