Middle Aged old Fart......

I am trying to get through some of my list of millions of cards and I was putting off my brother’s card. Male cards are not the greatest to make at the best of times but when you are making a card for someone who you know wont appreciate it just makes it worse! So to increase my enjoyment I decided to go with something that I know will annoy him (aren’t I great baby sister to have! lol) He thinks he is all hip and trendy but he is just a middle aged man going through a crisis *wink*.

The base of the card is made from DCWV Cardstack in Clove (that implies its green to me. …or is that me…but it’s a lovely brown) . There are actually 8 layers to this card, a combination of K&Company Maison range of designer papers and matt card stock in creams and browns. I used 4 brads from Making Memories to anchor some of the layers down. The image is from Ibrakeforstamps, which I stamped using Adirondack Pitch Black ink, coloured with Prismacolor pencils, blended with white spirit, and the whole card is chalked with chalks from Pebbles Inc.
