Special Man

Once again, Meg has sourced some wonderful vintage images for her ever growing range of Vintage Journal Cards (VJC). 

Today, I am sharing a group of four cards I have made, suitable for a very special man in your life!

Inspiration for my cards came from the many evocative pictures within Meg's Vintage Journal Card collections. Each, not only giving you creative inspiration, but also memories of yesteryear. 

The bling embellishments with the VJC hot air balloon, not only looks stunning, but acts as the appearance of wind gusts, blowing the balloon along. 
You can never have "too much" bling! 
I also stamped the background in tonal colours, with travel images, and mounted up the VJC, keeping it it main focal feature.

For dimension, each card has a 3D decoration, including tassels and buttons. All in keeping with the style, vintage, and adding a textual element to the cards.
Drawing inspiration from the stack of books VJC, I designed the front of the card as if it were an open page of a book - complete with dog-eared corners and a book mark. 

Meg's collections include beautiful sentiments and quotations. For the "Captain Cook" vessel VJC - in full sail - what could be more suitable than "Life is a Journey"! 
Colouring the sentiment in sepia tones to match with the VJCs, and adding tweed ribbon finished off this card, ready for it to take its own journey to the lucky recipient.
