This week Penny is hosting our Masculine "Anything Goes" Challenge at Watercooler Wednesday Challenges. For my card, I decided to do little stamping and more die-cutting. I'm a huge Downton Abbey fan and used some of my Crafter's Companion product for this design.
The card base is Naturals White to which I added a layer of Cherry On Top Designer Series Paper Stack. First I cut a strip of Tip Top Taupe. I ran it through the Big Shot using the Brick Wall Embossing Folder and attached it to the card front. The silhouette is cut from Basic Black using the Downton Abbey Die. Then, I ran it through the Big Shot using the Square Lattice Embossing Folder. I placed it right on top of the Tip Top Taupe wall.
The car is from the Downton Abbey Collection. It's stamped using Basic Black Archival ink. I did fussy cut it out and popped it up with Stampin' Dimensionals. What you cannot see well in the photo, is that I covered it with Clear Wink of Stella to give it a shimmer. That stuff is hard to photograph. The sentiment is from the Sprinkles of Life stamp set and stamped in Basic Black Archival ink. A few silver sequins and it was all done.
Most of the Stampin' Up!® is retired but I still love to go back and play with some of my favorites.

Thanks for stopping in at the Coffee Pot Stamping Cafe,
The design of your card is terrific! You have truly captured the Abbey and that vintage car fits right in! A perfect card for any Man.ReplyDelete
Thanks, Heather! It was a fun card to design.Delete
Marsha what a great mix of stamping and dies. Love that old vintage car and all the texture you've added with EF to the dies and background. A wonderful masculine card.ReplyDelete
Thanks, Penny! I always forget to use my embossing folders. Now that I've moved them to the shelf in front of my face, maybe that will change. :-)Delete
Marsha - you might like to know that I live only 15 minutes drive away from Highclere Castle where they filmed Downton Abbey - and go there often. Great card xReplyDelete
Thanks, Fiona! What fun! I think I'd drive by every day if I had the option.Delete
Great masculine card, Marsha! I like how you've placed the castle skyline there and the strip of gray stone patterned paper looks just like a road for your wonderful vintage car to drive on.ReplyDelete
Thanks, Shani! I'm a big Downton Abbey fan and love this die and the vintage car is from a Downton Abbey collection.Delete
