A Vintage Male Card

Yikes - I am so late with this post. I went to my parents' over Easter and stayed a little longer than I intended hence the lateness of my post!
It's Men and Boys over on Make My Monday and this week we want you to make it Vintage. There is a great prize on offer too - all the details are on the blog.
So here is my card

Now being quite a girly crafter I was having a bit of a problem with this theme - that is until my team mate Fliss helped me out by sending me some stamped images.
I covered my card with some brown vintage patterned paper. The houses (from crafty Individuals) had been stamped twice so I cut out one set - inked them with Brushed corduroy DI and then cut out a few individual houses from the second set to attach with 3D foam pads. The man, hat and balloon were inked in the same way  and stuck down onto the background paper - they are from Oxford Impressions. The french words - from Artistic Outpost were attached again with 3D foam pads.
That's all for today - thanks for looking - Jacqueline xx


  1. I have nothing for this theme either but to say it's not your thing, it's fab! Great layout and vintage effect.

  2. I know you say it's not your usual genre but I have to say you should work with it more as I think what you have created here is fabulous. Love everything about it ...xx

  3. Brilliant card even if it isn't your usual style - those stamps are terrific.

  4. This is absolutely amazing, Jacqueline! LOVE the images you've used--and it is so awesome that there are so many free digi images out there that fit the vintage theme! I've just started to dabble more in it myself--it's fun! ;) And you've done it justice!!!

  5. Superb Jacqueline! I love those amazing buildings and the added hat is a touch of genius! Hope you had a good Easter and enjoyed spending time with your parents. Vicky x
