A Masculine Card with a Touch of Vintage

Today is the start of a new theme at Allsorts challenge. It's Dena's week to host and she would like to see "Birthday Cards" but as usual there is the option of "Anything Goes" so all your new crafty makes are welcome and all will be entered into the prize drawing. 

I decided to make masculine birthday card using one of Tim Holtz's stamp sets - The Journey. The background was done with Distress inks and 3 stencils (clock, stripes and crackle). The text stamp, small clock and classic car are all part of the stamp set. Sentiment is from a Penny Black critter set. I love this font for masculine cards.

I plan on linking up with these challenges - several are for masculine cards:


  1. This is a great masculine card. I need to make a few today for father's day.

  2. I love making masculine cards for any age, but I don’t often make them vintage, I find it easier to make vintage cards for women. But I do think you nailed the vintage vibe for a man’s card with this one, it’s beautifully designed.

  3. Ellie, what a great masculine birthday card! So clever how you used those stencils for the background!! Thank you for sharing your creativity with us at Try Stampin' on Tuesday for our masculine sketch challenge!! -Donna

  22. eliza vecca has a thin, non-greasy texture that I really like. After washing, I use it on damp hair, concentrating on the ends and avoiding the roots. It immediately absorbs and leaves no trace in its wake. I like that it doesn't make my hair seem greasy or weigh it down.

  23. Super fabulous vintage masculine card. Love the truck image.

  24. Super fabulous masculine card. Love that truck image.

  25. Gorgeous Vintage inspired card! Love the layers of stencilling and stamping... Thanks for playing with us at Country View Challenges this month!
