Time To Say …

Hello friends,

Today I am sharing a maculine card I created. Male cards are a challenge for me and I always refrain doing these type of cards. I love flowers, lace and dainty embellishments and doing something bold didn’t come easy. I  have the beautiful script paper for years in my pile of papers and it was just perfect for a vintage background.  I distressed the edges with Tim Holtz distress ink for a  weathered look and to let the inlaid clock die cut stand out better. The die cut clock is a Nellie Snellen Vintasia  Figurative die and one of my favorites. To finish off I added some paper candy in shades of brown and white. The sentiment die cut is from Poppystamps “Vintage Happy Birthday”. I really love the final result – what do you think?

Challenges:

Project details:

  • White and brown card stock
  • Script designer paper
  • Nellie Snellen Vintasia Figurative die “Clock” ( VIND013)
  • PoppyStamps sentiment die “Vintage Happy Birthday”  (No 1178)
  • Craftworkscards Candi “Choc-a-Mocha”
  • Tim Holtz Distress Ink “Vintage photo”

That’s it for me today. Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

Regards,

Amelia

    Hi, Amelia, …was vir ‘n ruk weer nie in Blogland nie, want ek was weer doenig met al my ander stokperdjies, maar ek’s in die proses om weer by almal uit te kom en te loer wat gemaak is gedurende die afgelope vier weke!!!!
    Sjoe, en wat se lieflike manne-kaartjie het jy nie hier nie, jong!!! Ek sukkel ook maar met iets vir die manne, maar jy het regtig ‘n wenner gemaak jong!!!! Mal oor die antieke gevoel en die pragtige horlosie!!! Ek sien jy praat van paper candy – wat is dit en kry jy dit dalk plaaslik erens? – dit lyk regtig mooi!!!!! Regtig ‘n pragtige stukkie werk, soos ek jou mos ken!!!!!
    Groete
