Good Morning Friends,
I was up blogging late last night, just wasn't sleepy and Tom was watching a TV show that I wasn't interested in...so I think at 10:30pm, that was my first late night post!
On my day off last Wednesday, I decided it was time to make some guy cards...I always put it off! But actually once I got into it, I was actually enjoying a day of male cards very much and I'll share them on here over the next week or so, starting off with this one using this Sherlock Holmes stamp set by Sam Poole.
The actual idea for using the book, I got from a card posted on Sam's blog, but I adapted the actual card to my own ideas otherwise.
I matted and layered a 6x6 card blank with black and then white card and then stamped this newsprint stamp (also by Sam Poole) and added that as the next layer. I cut out a little open book shape in black card and then used a script stamp (from Vintage Labels, Creative Expressions) on two pieces of white paper, cut to represent pages.
The magnifying glass is from the Holmes set - I cut out the centre and added a piece of acetate. The sentiment and 'for you' are from another Sam Poole stamp set, Your My Type.
This was a quick card, a bit of fun!
Have a great Saturday!
