Hello and welcome to the Maja Design Blog! It’s Nancy again today, with a new card to share. Father’s Day is quickly approaching, so I decided to try Maja Design’s beautiful Vintage Romance collection in a more masculine theme.

My husband enjoys restoring vintage automobiles, making this paper collection absolutely perfect for his card! The papers are distressed, layered, and stitched to form a base. The vintage gentlemen and automobile embellishments are fussy cut from the paper collection.

I stamped a couple of Tim Holtz sentiments along the edges. The gears are die cut and embossed with Frantage Chunky Metal embossing powder. The Tim Holtz metal clocks are aged with gesso and rusting powder. A few scattered Tim Holtz metal elements and a bow add the finishing touches. You’ll find a couple more close ups below.

    Great card for a guy. I didn’t recognize it as one of yours at first, because no flowers or shabbiness :-)) The layers are just wonderful.

      Thank you so much, Marci! It is definitely a departure from my usual style. ? Father’s Day and my husband’s and son’s birthdays are about the only time I do a masculine theme. It always intimidates me a little-Loll!
