Masculine Card with Vintage Travel

A friend’s dad recently had a card shower for his 90th birthday—and he looks fab! I decided to make a vintage car card…love this image, it’s detailed and shaded but you can still hand-color parts of it. So I broke out the Prismacolor pencils and went to town…then I fussy cut the car.

I layered maroon cardstock with the woodgrain vellum and gold washi and gold paper for the sentiment. I die cut the vellum with a stitched rectangle die for a little extra texture. The woodgrain vellum is nice and thick for vellum, with a ton of texture and it takes color from inks well too. I’ve stenciled on top with Distress inks and it works great!

The sentiment is from the Hero Arts Birthday Messages set. It’s a great versatile stamp set and you can custom order it at no extra cost…and also get 15% off your cart of $25 or more when you use my coupon code below!

Here’s a close-up so you can see the vellum texture…yummy, huh? And it comes out the package all ready to use.

Thanks for stopping by!

Vintage Travel Card

Hi, friends, Chark here today with a Vintage Travel digi card. I downloaded the instant stamps and then printed out this fantastic vintage car on kraft paper. I colored it with white, red and black Prismacolor pencils. Then I added a die cut hello in red and outlined it in white gel pen. I die cut it with a stitched frame and adhered it to a white card base.


Easy, fast and fun to make. Now I’m ready for my next nephew’s birthday…and yes, most of my nephews are actually adults, which I do not care for–if they are old, what does that make me?! 🙂

Have you tried a digi kit? We have the exclusive rights to the Hero Arts digital catalog at a2z and it’s so easy to open and print them, you ought to take a look here if you haven’t yet. The other great thing? Instant access! No shipping!
