Today I will show a card I made for a man who turn´s 80 in February next year, ha ha, I thought it was this year but it is great to be ahead schedule.
Then I made the background of the card. A piece of Distress Heavystock, used the Gears 3D texture fade and put some crackle paste on the folder, then through my Big shot. After that I inked the hole surface with Distress ink Walnut stain. Covered it with Distress collage medium. Then I used Distess Crayons in Walnut stain, Black soot, Rusty hinge and Iced spruce. Then I used my sewing machine round the edges.
I diecut gears from chipboard and used Distress Oxide in Rusty hinge to cover them, then I sprayed them with Distress resist spray. Then I used Distress crayons in different brown and black colors. I like the texture you can get with the Distress spray. I also diecut a globe from Tim´s Sizzix Globe die, from Kraft cardstock and sanded it for a more distressed look.
I used Tim´s Ideaology Hexagon fasteners in the middle of the gears.
Here you can see the texture that the Distress collage medium crazing did.
Here you can see all the layers of the card. I mounted the background on sanded Kraft cardstock and then mounted that layer on a Kraft core metallic piece that was diecut with Tim´s die Stitched rectangels and then also sanded.
The "arrows" are from a Sizzix Tim Holtz die called Shape strips. And the number´s 80 are from a Sizzix Tim alphabet die called "Deco" which I love. I cut 80 both from metallic Kraftstock and from blue Kraft stock and sanded both and glued them a little bit offset.
To finish off my card I colored a paper doll with Distress markers on some of his clothes and also put a Small talk sticker on the card.
I will try this card in this challenge:
