For the Boys

Hello friends,

Today’s creation is a masculine card, inspired by the new Double D Challenge. I am joining Team Darlene for this challenges and the theme is “One for the Boys”. With such a lovely inspiration June Collagephoto you can create anything but we would like to see sports, cars, motorcycles, checks,or fishing. For more information about the challenge and the lovely prize visit the Double D Challenge blog. Looking forward to see your card!

I created a card in the vintage style using gears and a vintage car die cut. I layered everything on a red background, a strip of checkered paper,  an embossed panel and two tags cut from Kraft paper. I added some red and black buttons for interest. Please see the project details at the bottom of this post for the dies I used.

I entered my card in  the following challenges:
