Classic

Hello Everyone! I'm off traveling this week for work, it's gonna be super busy but mostly driving long hours to get to where I'm suppose to be! So, with that in mind I thought I'd show you a card involving a classic - car that is.

Stamp is from The Angle Company Just Bee-Cuz set. I inked up the stamp in Versamark and Palette Noir and stamped it so that I could get a good even coverage. Then heat embossed it with clear embossing powder on ivory cardstock. Labels 17 used to cut it out and then decided to use the next size up and layer it with black. Nice and simple - just right for a guy card!

The newsprint paper in the back ground is made using the vintage photo distress ink from Ranger and water. Using my craft mat, I swiped the distress ink across it and then spritzed with water. Laid the newspaper in the color wash and then dried it with a heat gun. Repeated this process a couple of times to get the color I wanted.

I'll add this card to my stash for masculine birthday cards, which I never seem to have enough of.

Have a great week!

Really handsome card for a man. Wouldn't it be fun to ride in a Model-T?

Love your newsprint background - it just makes the image popand adds the vintage feel to the card. I am going to have to try this for sure.
