Masculine Vintage Card

onsdag 30 maj 2012

Hi there! I hope your week has been good so far.
I received a request to make a card for a man who are about to celebrate his 65 th birthday.
I made a vintage inspired card with a bit of humor...

...the text (written by hand) says: How does the world look in 100 years? Well, we will celebrate your 29 th birthday, as usual.

I started by printing out the handsome gentleman from The Vintage Moth and layered him over papers from Prima Marketing the Printery Collection, and a sheet from an old book. All layers were well inked.

I choose a nice linen ribbon to the bow, then I added twine and a button on top. Behind you can see a doily.
I found a car in my stash and then it got to be a part.

I finished of this card with a piece of braided natural cord, I set it fixed with staples.

Now I hope that the "birthday child" like this card and get a nice day.
Thanks so much for visiting!
Hugs, Birgit

Tuesday Throwdown - Masculine

Your masculine card is absolutely beautiful! I LOVE Prima's Printery collection. You did a wonderful job of using those vintage prints on your card! Love your vintage portrait. I also love the doily and the flower with the bow that you used. You would not consider those things to be masculine but you have worked them into your card beautifully! Wonderful design! Thanks so much for sharing your card with us at Simon Says Stamp and Show. <3 Candy
