You Are a Classic

Happy Friday and Welcome!
Today's card is a simple one using and old pair of jeans and my Gel Plate.
A good masculine card to have on hand.

So, here's what I did to create my card.
  • I cut a piece of white cardstock first and got out my Gel Plate.
  • I pressed some Uncharted Mariner Distress Oxide ink onto my Gel Plate and using a brayer, I smoothed it all out on the plate. 
  • Next, I took an old pair of my husband's jeans and pressed them onto the plate to transfer the details of the pants.
  • I lifted the pants off and took my white cardstock and rubbed over my plate to take the print.
  • When the piece was dry, I stamped the sentiment into the corner.
  • I glued the card front onto a piece of black cardstock, then onto an A2 card base.
  • To finish the card off, I added 5 silver gems under the sentiment.

Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.

This is fantastic. I have a gel plate but not very good at using it. Lori

What a clever idea. I love this background and your card. I have a gel press and still haven't used it. Need to get it out of the drawer and make something.
