You're a classic!

** 11/4/16 Top 3 at artbymiran Challenge! **

Hi everyone! As I mentioned yesterday, I'm an October guest designer for MHK Designs and having a wonderful time as new digi sets are released over the course of five days! I hope you enjoyed yesterday's release as much as I did! And I hope you stick around to see them all... you definitely won't be disappointed!

This is Day 2 of the October Release and I have a masculine card to share with you, a vintage Father's Day card created using the 'Various Vehicles' digi set. All the images in this set are so crisp and clean they don't require any coloring. I printed the old car image on ivory antique linen cardstock and layered it on black cardstock.

The gingham background paper is from MHK Designs 'Ginham in Rustics' digital paper pack, also printed on ivory antique linen cardstock, which coordinates beautifully with the dark chocolate cardstock layered behind the focal image. I played with Crystal Drops which I'm really loving these days. Brads, buttons, a vintage key and twine are the only other embellishments used.

I layered the inside sentiment on some of the gingham paper and layered it on the brown cardstock.

Proud to enter this card into the following challenges:

  • Cardstock/Paper: GKD Pure Luxury Ivory and Dark Chocolate cardstock, Stampin' Up! Soft Suede cardstock, MHK Designs 'Gingham in Rustics' digital paper
  • Stamps: MHK Designs 'Various Vehicles' digital stamp set
  • Accessories: Stampin' Up! silver mini brads, Dark Walnut Crystal Drops, vintage key, 3 Girl Jam vintage buttons, twine

I hope you've enjoyed today's project! Be sure to check out the new releases at the MHK Designs store! Thanks so much for stopping by today - we'll see you next time!
