It was my DH's birthday yesterday (yes, tax day!), and I always try to do a really special card for him. He's a pilot, so when I saw that Bombshell Stamp had a downloadable pilot outfit for their Bombshell Angel stamp, I splurged and bought it to make this, a little joke based on "remove before flight" flags that pilots use.
steel utensil bins for $10 for copic storage) and used the full-color image from the Bombshell website as a guide for coloring. I used E53, E33, E35, and E37 for the pants, E35, E37, and E29 for the jacket, and gray sharpie markers for the boots. I printed the "Remove Before Flight" tag on my computer. I bet you can guess what happens when you go to remove it...
To make the slider, I first made a practice template, getting the window and slider slot in the right place. After cutting those out, I cut a thin strip of acetate about 4 inches long (you could just use paper, but I had a different plan first that needed the clearness of the acetate) and also a strip of a paper about 3 inches long. I adhered the center of the paper strip to the acetate strip to make a cross, then folded the ends around to meet in the middle, pushed them through the slot, and opened them up (kind of like the back of a brad). Then I adhered another small strip of paper to keep the ends open and flat in the back. Here's a picture showing the back. The one on the left is when I first push the ends through, and the one on the right is the finished one. You only need one slider, I just forgot to take a picture before I glued the second piece on. :)
It definitely got high marks from Mr Corgi Creations, which made all of that engineering work worth it!
