|Manly "Clockworks" card|
I was really pleased with the result. I had fun with lots of new product to make this card. As I mentioned, "Clockworks" is a great new Stampin' Up stamp set and includes a great "splat" stamp which I stamped in Crumb Cake first. I then used the "seagull splat" stamp in Soft Suede and finally stamped the cogs in Cajun Craze and Midnight Muse.
One of the other new product "bundles" I used was the "Itty Bitty Banners" stamp set and matching "Bitty Banners" Framelits dies. What a great combination. The DSP is "Comfort Cafe"....love it! This collection of Designer Series Paper contains such versatile patterns and I really like the colour combinations.
I finished off the card with Early Espresso Baker's Twine and Linen Thread. I found that the Baker's Twine was a little too white against the Very Vanilla so I took a sponge inked with Soft Suede ink and ran it along the thread a few times to "antique" it a little. I also distressed the edges of the cardstock.
I mailed it off almost as soon as I finished it. I hope he likes it : )
