Birthday Card for My Brother

Made an 8 x 8 birthday card for my brother this afternoon.

The backing paper is a sheet from the Papermania Bookprint collection. I chose the Italian paper as my brother's wife is Italian and he has lots of Italian connections. Originally the paper was black and white, but I distressed it with my trusty Vintage Photo distress ink - I don't know if you are like me but I use that one on everything! lol

I used a chipboard pocket watch from studio 490's art parts and gilded it with indigo blu gilding flakes. I then cut a watch face out from some Bo Bunny 12x12 paper and glued this behind the chipboard to make a watch.

I then added a couple of tickets (also distressed with Vintage photo), a brass embelishment and a sentiment.  Am quite pleased with it!



  1. LOL Debz I love my Vintage photo too. This is stunning, I love the tickets and the pocket watch.
