Let’s get away – masculine card

20180621_113420

 

Hello and happy first day of summer!

Today I am sharing a masculine/travel card that I created for the latest Male Room Challenge #88 – Inspired by a film title

https://themaleroomchallengeblog.blogspot.com/2018/06/challenge-88-inspired-by-film-title.html

I love movies and choosing just one that would inspire a card was not easy. I finally settled on a few favorites (The Bucket List, Secondhand Lions and Around the World in 80 days) that inspired this card with a travel theme.

The stamp I used is from Brutus Monroe June 2018 Stamp club and I just love this versatile little stamp.

I started by stamping the image with Memento Tuxedo black ink and coloring it with alcohol markers. The luggage stamp image has a vintage look so I decided to color the suitcases in browns/earthy tones. Once it was colored I fussy cut the image and started on the background.

I stamped the image with Altenew Mocha Crisp Dye Ink repeatedly on the background creating my own patterned paper.

I used MFT stitched rectangle die to cut the background and adhered it to a top folding A2 sized card base (Recollections 110lb), then secured the colored luggage image with foam tape.

The sentient ~Let’s get away~ that came with the stamp set was stamped on kraft cardstock and die cut with a tiny pierced tag die from MFT – Pierced Tag Stax.

I thought this vacation/travel card would be the perfect way to celebrate the first day of summer πŸ™‚

    I do like this card – the stack of luggage is just perfect for a trip around the world in 80 days! Fab! Thanks so much for playing along with our Film Title challenge at The Male Room. Deborah, DT. PS Sorry to be so late commenting!!
