Vintage Birthday Card

Hello!  I'm so glad you are here!  It's time for a new challenge at My Sheri Crafts and this time we are hosted by Sue.  She has challenged us to make a Vintage Guy Card.  No clean, crisp cards, thank you!  Let's get inky!

Now cards for guys are a challenge for me, but add vintage to it and I'm really having to get to work!  But here's what I came up with:

Not too bad, I suppose.... ;p

Patterned cardstock - Paper Loft
Sentiment stamps - Fiskars
Tag - Winter Woodland (I has been laying on my worktable waiting to be used for quite awhile)
Rope - recycled from a package received
Stickers - Rebekah Sower
Key - one of the many found when we cleared out Dad's house 
Distress Inks - Tim Holz

This was really a fun project, once I got started.  So come on over to My Sheri Crafts and join in the fun and get inky!

I'm entering this card here:

Cardz TV - birthday
Open Minded Crafting Fun - monochrome
Really Reasonable Ribbon - one for the boys


  1. Oh Sarah, this is such a great card. I just love the sentiment and the key is great too. You do guy cards and vintage so well.

  2. Great card Sarah! You pulled off a rustic vintage card! Looks great!
