Im sure many other crafters, like me, struggle for mens cards. I came across a lovely little set of stamps from My minds eye that are perfect for a vintage theme mens card.
All the backing papers are from the luscious Prima Romance Novel collection. I have overstamped the corners of the paper with tags and fingers from My Minds eye and the crackle from the Time after Time set from Visible Image. My card is pretty embellishment free (not like me!) but Ive made up for it with enthusiastic stamping!
The focal point of card is the Balloon from MME which I stamped in versafine ink then covered in Ranger Sepia Accent for a bit of texture and added three wee dots of it in the corner, just to tie it together. I mounted it using 3d foam onto 2 layers of patterened paper to give it lift (balloon...lift...oh dear think I should stick to crafting and avoid the comedy attempts) The sentiment, which I love is K and co. I then matted it onto a Kanban matt which I coloured with distress markers and my crackle stamp again.
Im entering my card in the following comps -
