Here comes another card for the men in our life, a dad.
The papers that is used is from Graphic45’s 8×8″ paperpack from the collection Le Cirque. Everything have been distressed with Vintage Photo. The Layout is this weeks Inspirational Card Sketches.
The image is Tina Design the train from the store Arkivet, here in town. The buttons at the bottom is from Provocraft’s Babyface Alphabet dies. The divider between the two patterned papers is a selfadhesive paper-lace from Panduro, also treated with Vintage Photo. I kept goinhg with the stitching from the buttons (embroidery-thread treated with Vintage Photo) on the other side if the card and on the inside.
This card is for my Cousin that turn 18 this Wednsday.
The papers are cardstock and the black one is a Cor’dinations that i have dry-embossed with Provocraft’s embossingfolder Clockworks and then i sanded it to make the white core appear better. All edges have been thorn and distressed with Vintage Photo. The the light block with the sentiment has been wrinkled and distressed with Vintage Photo.
The image is from Tina design found at the store Arkivet. I bought this one and a steam-engine train this Wednesday on Arkivet’s 7th birthday and i love them, it’s gonna be much easier to make masculine cards. The senitiments are from Penny Black set Critter Party.
The ribbons is put through a couple of eyelets (white ones) that i have sanded a bit and lightly colored with black stazon. The ribbons have been colored with distress-inks. The brown one is only Vintage Photo and the other one is a mix of Black Soot and Weathered Wood. I first mixed some water and ink and make some spots on the cotton ribbon and then i used my blending tool to color in the rest, then they were the dried with my heatgun.
The layout is by this weeks Sketch Saturday (the first picture to the right) and the Technique is from The Shabby Tearoom and is about dry embossing (the second picture to the right).
