Vintage Guy Card

Hello again,
Today over at it is my turn to pick the theme and I chose vintage guy card which must include some inking on it.

This card is for an order for a young man turning 18 who likes the cinema. I chose to make a large A5 card this time.

As you can see the card blank is deep red which reminded me of the old cinema seats which were quite plush. The ticket paper is from MME which I embossed and then distressed and then inked with Fire Brick and Black Soot. The black striped paper is from HOTP and it has been in my stash for years. The images are from Kaisercraft as are the two stamps I have used. I printed out sentiment myself. For a little throw back the Live Life stamp is matted on to red velvet paper.
Thanks for stopping by today, now take a peek at the other girls creations and then join in.

Pimp Up My Ride Dude!

Today I have a guy card to share with you. I had to make a card for a young guy turning 18 who loves his car.
I found this decoupage in my stash along with a sheet from an old road map. I cut the 18 out using Don Juan and my Cricut. The sentiment I printed and cut out using my Spellbinder die along with a selection of cogs. The map I embossed using "hounds tooth".

Thanks for stopping by today.

My Sheri Crafts challenge 126

Hello again,

Over at it is design team member Sandy's turn to choose the challenge and this week it is add a heart to a card.
Now to me that dose not just mean valentines but any other time of the year too. So here is my card for this time.

For this 5x5 card I have used some lovely double sided card by MME it is a sort of zesty yellow/green colour with white dots. I used some of this wonderful wide lace sent to me by my friend and some lemon ribbon too. The hearts are cut using a Spellbinder die and I embossed the back one using a Sue Wilson's folder, the front lacy one is cut in white card. The sentiment is by Kaisercraft. To finish it off I added a few gems in green and smokey yellow.

Thanks for stopping by, now it is your turn to make something and link up.
