Vintage Vehicle

     I was thinking of my blogging friend, Linda (Linda's Crafty Piece of Heaven), when I made this card.  She does such incredible masculine vintage cards and I love every one of them.  Actually, she does heavenly vintage cards and many of them are masculine!  Thanks for all that  marvelous inspiration, my friend.

     This is the second of our October release sets at MHK Designs and the set is called "Various Vehicles."  You will find a photo of the complete set at the bottom of this post.  I also used "Chevrons" from the "Snow Day"set and a photo of it is at the bottom, also.

     Although the car itself isn't colored, I used one of my dies from Spellbinders to cut it and chalked around the image while it was still in the die.  Because the die cut piece was larger than my card base, I trimmed it to fit an A2 style card.

     I laid two strips of the chevron paper onto a blue card front and then added the image piece.  I dug through my stash for some blue ribbon, wrapped it around the card front and layered the sentiment on top of the ribbon.  The final touch was one of my bow ties made with polka dot ribbon.

     Be sure to visit the MHK Designs blog and then visit all the other designers to see what they've done with the images from this set.   They are so many different ones that the set is very versatile and so great for masculine cards.  The distressed chevron paper really works with any of the vintage images.

     Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie
