Thanks, Man!

i have a vintage style thank you card this morning to share. As its for The Male Room Challenge it is, of course, designed for a man with more than a little help from the sketch over at The Paper Players.

This card started life as a technique workshop, where we used dark card stock, embossed and rubbed over with a metallic ink pad, to resemble metal work. Here it is black card and a copper coloured ink on a printing press themed embossing folder ( no idea which brand as I borrowed it on the evening)

I have used this as a top layer, and put some vintage K&Co paper behind it. The banner is stamped with a sentiment from Vintage Verses- I used Chocolate Chip on Kraft card.

I have made a small mat from some DP, from Adventure Bound- these are brilliant papers for masculine cards, and added a small Kraft tag with a stamped vintage car image. I sponged all the edges of the layers with Crumb Cake

The finishing touch is a little clock hand added to point to the sentiment and I've used a small Brad to attach it.


  1. Wow!! This creation is stunning!! I really love the background with the faux metal design!! I love all of the Vintage style elements too!! Great card! :)

  2. What a wonderful vintage creation! Great embossed detail - really has a metallic look. Super vintage car on the tag too. Great work - super take on the challenge. xxx

  3. Oh I love this! Such a fabulous metallic effect on the embossing, reminds me of vintage book covers.

  4. I love this! The 'metal' work is so good, what a great effect.

  5. Great technique, I thought it was metal until I read your post!


Thanks for leaving a comment. I love reading them all!
