Masculine Card ~ Vintage ~

Hello everyone! I have a card to share with you today that I made for my brother. It's my brother's birthday on Anzac Day but we are celebration today/night.  I always struggle with masculine cards as I don't like boat and car images and they don't suit all males so I went vintage.

I created the background by stamping a script stamp using Versamark then embossing it with clear embossing powder. It went darker(accidental discovery) on the crumb cake cardstock and it was perfect. I also used other stamps and inked around the edges and in random places on the card front.

I used distress stain to colour the chipboard cogs. I applied a layer of rock candy crackle paint and used my heat tool to dry them

I continued the vintage look inside the card. I used the banners to hide a paper join.

One thing I am really pleased is that I still managed to have ribbon and a bow on my card!


Paper: Kaisercraft coffee bean, Stampin' Up! crumb cake

Stamp: Tim Holtz spills and splatters, BoBunny midnight frost, Waltzingmouse Stamps: Say It Loud

Ink: Walnut stain distress ink, Versafine vintage sepia, versa mark

Other: WOW cogs, burlap, Basic Grey Lucille snippets, picket fence and walnut stain distress stains, clear rock candy distress crackle paint, Stampin' Up! clear embossing powder, black eyelets.

Thanks for stopping by!
