Hope you can see all the detail I put into this masculine Vintage Birthday card. Stamped a background onto Kraft cardstock using Stampendous Distressed Type stamp which is a large stamp. Bought it at JoAnns on clearance for $2.97 and got add'l 20% off for military wk this wk. Used 3 different scrapbook papers that I cut. Have hesitated in the past & sometimes still do when I think about cutting scrapbook paper into small pieces. Used Tim Holtz items. Did some distressing. Stamped Hero Arts birthday sentiment. Does anyone know if there are some Vintage stamped sentiments? Added twine.

  2. Another great background card! Thank you for playing along with us at MFP Simple Salutations Challenge.

  3. Great masculine card. I hesitate to cut my paper too sometimes. Usually I then laugh at myself because you could bury me in my stash. Really like the typewriter image.
