Penny Farthing

This die hadn't been used for a while so I thought I'd use up some more of my scraps and make a male card. Background paper was from a pad which I think is quite handy for male themed cards and a scrap of black card was embossed and then rubbed with silver gilding wax.  The penny farthing was cut from another black scrap and popped onto a pierced square which was left over from making a frame.  The whole thing was brightened by using some coloured card to accent the layers and sentiment.

  3. I felt sure you were going to say this was an SU stamp that I have been telling myself I do not want/need to buy. Don't know whether to feel relieved or peeved!! Lol. Card is lovely. hugs Mrs A.

  4. This is lovely Vaĺ. The penny farthing bicycle is perfect for a man's card and the rings e/f is a perfect accent.
