Male vintage card

A vintage male birthday card


I have made this card for my friends Dad, I'm hoping he will like it!!!

I found the topper in my Kanban stash (Steampunk) Love these toppers, They are brilliant for male cards, The backing paper and card stock is also from Kanban, The colours are just perfect for this style The base card is from Craftwork cards and is 8in x8in card, I used cream SPIDER WEB to give some texture



I made my own sentiment and just aged the paper and mounted it on matching card stock, I used brads on the corners of the topper.

 
Think it is always lovely to add the persons name, makes it more special for them. And I used Candi in the corners, You can get these from Craftwork Cards
 
 
The inside I printed a sentiment from the Toread CD and mounted on brown card stock and used a gold die cut to frame the sentiment. I aged the inside with distress ink



I WOULD LIKE TO ENTER THIS INTO EMMA'S CHALLENGE FOR BRYAN BIRTHDAY
