Happy Birthday ~ Maja Design~

Hello everyone! Today and I am sharing a masculine card that I made for my brother (I am behind in my birthday cards as I have another birthday card to make!) I always struggle to make masculine cards and it takes me a while to create one. This one is a bit grungy/steampunk inspired.

I used the CreaDiem Collection as I was drawn to the muted tones of the papers. I also used foam tape to add definition to the layers. 

I used two Tim Holtz stamps, Simple Sayings and Odds and Ends as well as a memo pin. The steampunk clock is by Cheery Lynn. I also fussy cut a clock from Vintage Autumn Basics XVI papers to add to the centre of the clock as shown. I distressed the edges with walnut stain and black soot  distress inks. 

I usually machine stitch around the edges of my cards, but I used Bobunny’s stitches stamp on my card and tag instead. I love the distressed pattern of the stamp.

Life is very busy at the moment. Right now I am moving into a new house, hence I have been a little bit quiet. I have just about finished my school reports and I am still breathing!  Once I unpack and find my craft supplies a new home, I'll be back!

Thanks for stopping by!
