The Stamp Man challenge- Men and Boys

Yay, it's Stamp Man challenge time again! This fortnight, Michelle is challenging us to make a card for a man or boy. I thought I'd get ahead of the game and make my Dad's Father's Day card. Now I vividly remember making last year's Father's Day card, so I can't believe where the time has gone to!

I went for a diamond topped card, which looks tricky, but is really VERY easy to make. If I get chance, I'll do a tutorial on how to make one later today.

The background sections are layered up with stamping and ink blending. The little tickets and the sentiment are bumped up on 3d foam. I'm particularly pleased with the vintage gold paper I used to mat up- I got a pack of about 20 sheets from Hobbycraft in the sale for 50p!

I'm entering this into the following challenges:
