It's Thursday and there's a new challenge starting at Aud Sentiments Challenge Blog. The theme for this fortnight is For the Men in Our Life. Our sponsor is Doodle Pantry and I chose this fabulous vintage set to use on my card. It comes with a digi to colour, several pre-coloured images, digi papers and several sentiments. A wonderful set to use for male cards.
I decided to go with a pre-coloured image for my card this time around, one of the papers (which I enlarged slightly) and also one of the sentiments.
Here is my card......
SU Chocolate Chip cardstock for the cardbase and mattes
SU Sahara Sand cardstock for the embossed pieces and a matte.(It looks a bit grey here, but it is a pale brown/sand colour)
Image is from Doodle Pantry - Vintage Gentleman
DP is from the same set
Sentiment also from the set
Cuttlebug embossing folder (not sure of the name - it's one I had before I started saving the packaging)
Punch - oval
SU Chocolate Chip inkpad
Bling from stash
I am entering my card into the following challenges:
Cuttlebug Mania - Anything embossed
Deep Ocean Challenge Blog - Challenge #86 ~ Vintage
Through the Craftroom Door - Anything Goes
Crafty Cardmakers and more - Challenge #122 ~ Make an impression (dry embossing)
Sentimental Sundays - Challenge #223 ~ A Touch of Vintage
This was a reasonably quick card to make due to the wonderful pre-coloured image and the added bonuses of the digi paper and sentiments that came with it. Just had to work out the layout and voila! a great male themed card to add to my already huge stash of cards, lol.
Please pop in to the challenge blog and check out my teamies fabulous makes and we would love to hear from you too. I'm looking forward to seeing all the wonderful creations this time. Some of us find it harder to do male cards and I for one am always open to some inspiration, lol.
Thanks for stopping by today
