A vintage male birthday (that's vintage labels stamps - not a vintage male, heehee)

What's that I hear you say, just like buses, no sign of any hardware and then a bunch at once? Lol! I know, I know, I really should use them all more often. I had a card to make for a male friend and figured the Vintage Labels would be ideal. This particular one is not too fussy and teamed with some DSP and hardware, it isn't too plain either.

Stamp set: Vintage Labels
Cardstock: Glorious Green, Whisper White
DSP: Groom, Kaleidoscope
Ink: Basic Black, Glorious Green
Other: Hodgepodge Hardware, Clips Assortment, Silver Brads

I used the stamp-a-ma-jig to position the text centrally within the frame. The layers of Groom DSP are raised on dimensionals both for interest and to give room for the hardware to lie flat on the reverse.

I've reversed the text and frame colours for the inside of the card.

Have a great weekend.

I love how you've matched up the inside too, brilliant idea and fab card. I've just scrolled down and looked at some of your other lovely cards - please stop using SAB sets, I need to spend £90 now! xxx
