Meet the Gentleman

Here's a quick look at how I made this vintage masculine card, using lovelies from Stampendous:
  • Cut card base from Artichoke card stock 
  •  Ahead of time, spritz coffee water onto Birch card stock; sprinkle coffee grounds and allow to dry. 
  •  Cut Saltillo card stock in three panels; add patterned paper to one and coffee card stock to another. 
  • Stamp Poised Gent image on Birch card stock; shade as desired with alcohol markers. 
  • Apply Walnut Stain ink directly to edges adhere to Saltillo card stock. 
  • Adhere largest Birch panel and patterned paper panel to card base; tie cording around in a knot. Add Poised Gent panel.
Stamps: Poised Gent 
Card Stock: Saltillo, Artichoke (Bazzill); Birch (Neenah) 
Patterned Paper: Joyous Noel (Graphic 45) 
Ink: Vintage Sepia (Versafine); Walnut Stain (Ranger) 
Accessories: Brown, Tan Cord (May Arts) Tools: spray bottle filled with coffee water, dry coffee grounds

Pin It
