Blast from the Past

 It's my turn to share my Pick of the Week with you today.  I'm going to take you way back to July of 2015 for this one!  This card is the very first one I shared as a designer for Repeat Impressions and The House That Stamps Built!  I was so honored to have Wendy ask me to join her team and I am still so honored that she has let me continue as one of her designers for 6 years now!!  Thank you, Wendy!  Here is the card:

This airplane image is so perfect for masculine card!  And I remember having fun stamping it with red ink instead of the usual black ink.  I think it adds a little bit to the more vintage feel.  It was July 1st that this card was first published, so the red, white and blue color combo is very fitting.  I also find it to be a great color combo for masculine cards, even when they are not being sent out around the 4th of July.  Looking back on old cards can be rather embarrassing, but I still really like this one!  It's inspiring me to pull out this stamp and use it for masculine cards I need to make.  I hope this brief look back in time will inspire you to go back and revisit some earlier cards from your card making journey.    Maybe you like them exactly as they are, or maybe you have grown and can think of a way to improve them.  The stamps I used on this card are "Bi-plane Silhouette" and "Dreams take Flight".
