Time flies...

Et ordntlig maskulint kort dette, litt vintage og med nye flotte stempler fra Viva Las Vegas Stamps. De har utrolig mange stempler som passer til mer 'røffe' kort. Av og til virker det som om stempelverdenen er helt overfyllt med vakre og søte motiv, deilig og lage noe grungy ;)

..Worlds best Dad..

A very masculine card today, with some of my new stamps from VLVS ~ they got a whole lot of motifs for the more vintage and 'rough' types of projects. Sometimes it seems the crafting world is overflowing with cute and pretty ~ it is such a relief to go grungy once in a while! ;)

  2. I love this card it is so grungy, masculine and fab. I struggle with male cards though and find girly, cute ones so much easier, I think it's because as you said there are more embellishments and papers to choose from in the feminine styles. Love the stamps you have used and your newsprint paper.

  3. Fabulous card :-) the whole design of this is absolutely awesome! I love all the masculine details! :-)
