For The Gentleman

tisdag 8 januari 2013

Hello friends!
I have promised myself that this year I will make more cards for men:)
So therefore I started the year by acquiring some new appropriate stamps, and also already done a couple of pieces. Here's the first ...

I have used some old Prima Marketing paper from the Printery collection, which I like very much.
And of course the stamps from Darkroom Door.
But besides them, I have, by the way just used oldies from my stash.

I found a great sketch for the card at The Sweet Stop Sketches, that I have used.
The round sentiment stamp in the upper left corner are from Rox Stamps.

I cut out a piece of wax paper and crumpled it up, then stitched it into place. 
A watch charm, pieces of ribbons and laces were also adhered together with a ticket to the opera house:)

Here are some challenges I found for this card:

Papertake Weekly - Happy New
Make It Monday - Anything Goes
Simon Says Stamp And Show - Embrace the Old
Craft Your Passion - Vintage or Shabby Chic
Ett Trykk - Klokker

Well, I think this will be all from me today. Have a great day!
Hugs, Birgit

Dette er jo et flott kort for en mann! Du har lyktes med å benytte blonder på en måte som gjør at designet allikevel er super-maskulint.

Birgit...your card is absolutely beautiful! I so love all of the layering of vintage papers and images you've designed on this wonderful card! Love the deep browns, the stamped images, the bits of lace and the pocket watch embellishment on the front. Thanks for sharing this work of art with us at Simon Says Stamp and Show. <3 Candy

I love to see guy cards. They can be so difficult for me to make. I saw your card on MIM.
