The Stamp Man Challenge- Cards for Men

Time for another Stamp Man challenge! This fortnight we want you to make Cards for Men! I took the opportunity to make my Dad's birthday card (it's not til December, but there's no harm in being prepared, eh?)!

I used the Aspects of Design stamp plate 10- Mens. This particular stamp reminded me of Dad when I was little, he always wore a trilby.

I stamped onto a tag and then did a bit of ink blending round the edges. The metallicy bits are gilding flakes over a quickie glue pen, and they really brightened it up a bit. I turned over the bottom of the card to slot the card into (it's also glued on!), and inked round the edges to give it a more vintage feel.

Righto, over to you then. What will you come up with this fortnight? Don't forget there's a nice prize to be won, and lots of inspiration to be had from me team mates over on the Stamp Man Challenge blog.
