Old Crock cards for men

Hello everyone.

 Just realized that I haven't posted anything for ages!!
Today I have cards suitable for men.

 Always difficult I find as I don't seem to have much male orientated stash! However, I do like this Old Crock stamp from Hobby Art and I have stamped it onto metal and acetate for my samples.

 This design uses metal sheet, stamped and embossed.
I love this technique and I never tire of using metal on my projects. The Happy  Birthday stamp is a Woodware, stamped onto shrink plastic. It was a good size when shrunk. The eyelets have been set using a Crop-a-dile, which is a great tool and easy to use.

The car is stamped onto acetate for this sample, and coloured on the back with metallic paint. I have spray mounted it onto an embossed background.

The Sizzix die cut frame compliments it well  I think, and is just the right size to go around the car.

The backgrounds are embossed with different Sizzix embossing folders, to give some texture.

All the products used were purchased at The Craft Barn.

See you soon.
