One for the Men

Welcome to the weekend again and this weeks new
This weeks theme choosen by Kate is
Go for Green ( it's nearly St Paddies Day).
Our sponsor this week is
Crafters Companion and the prize is a £10 voucher.

My card this week is more for the man in your life. The base card is a 8x8 covered with a patterned paper. The bottle and glass has been cut out of gold mirror card on the Cricut placed onto dark green card and cut out. This has then been placed on the front edge of the base card and the edge has been cut to the shape of the image to give a shaped front.

The leaves have been cut from a dotty patterned green paper using a punch and the grapes have been made using  Craftwork Cards Candy. The main greeting has been made using scalloped circle punches in gold mirror, dark green and green patterned papers with the words printed out. With brown and green ribbons hanging from the bottom it looks like a rosette.

The letter spelling VINTAGE have been printed out and layered onto gold mirror card using deckle edge square punches. A simple one this week.
