The challenge at CD Sunday this week is a card for the boys - always a difficult subject. Last week I treated myself to a couple of very reasonably priced stamp sets & one of them was geared more towards mens cards. So I wondered if I would be able to combine it with CD crafting to meet this challenge.
The CD I used for this challenge was Jem's Designs "Cardz 4 Men" & the design I chose was Travel. The background paper has been created to print on paper/card or vellum - so I chose the vellum version but printed it on ordinary copier paper. I then tore all around the piece to make the size I required for my DL card & used Vintage photo Distress Ink on the edges to make it stand out from the cream card. I liked the way the torn edges curled a bit as I applied the ink which helped the aged look quite a lot. I printed 2 toppers & cut out the image in the bottom right corner & also the globe & stuck those over the design on sticky pads. I stamped the sailing ship in Versarmark ink & heat embossed in gold EP, then cut it out & layered it onto black card leaving a thin border. I also layered the topper in the same way.
I haven't put any greeting on it so that I can add an appropriate greeting when I use it.
Thank you for stopping by today, please pop over to the challenge biog - link at top of this post - & see how creative others have been.
I am also going to enter this card in another challenge via my stamping blog.
