Cardz 4 Guyz Challenge #16 "Time"
The theme for this week's Challenge #16 at Cardz 4 Guyz is "Time". I went with the obvious on this one—clocks! I used a large Aladine clock face stamp for the focal point, layered with some die-cuts. I wasn't real vintage-y last week—more like retro—so I decided to return to my comfort zone with this one. Those are truly vintage buttons to the left, by the way. I wanted a bit of texture on this card so the card base is made from an A4 kraft envelope that I cut down to a 15 cm square. On it's own that's not a thick enough paper, but with the cardstock inside and out it works great.
The outside says "...it's time" and the inside sentiment says "...to celebrate. Happy Birthday!".
I've used the sketch from Sweet Sketch Wednesday as my base for this card.
