Such A Gentleman

What a Gent? Well he is from a new e-kit coming out soon from Making Handmade Cards. Isn't he cool? I just had to make a vintage style card for him with the 'writing' paper which comes in the kit.

I love paper with writing on it. You know the type of designs I mean where it might be a page from a dictionary or just paper with old writing in the design? I seem to just collect it - is that just me? LOL!

Have a Vintage Style Sunday

  1. Really gorgeous card Kim, know what you mean about the paper, love it too and have been known to rip pages from an old dictionary now and then lol.

  2. Hi Kim

    Beautiful card. Great image and I am totally there with you on the old writing thing. It just doesn't always fit in with what I am creating though so it "stays around" just waiting for that special moment when it will come into its own!!

    Have a lovely Sunday.

    Love Jules xx

  4. What a fab card Kim... love the colours of it & how you've distressed the written paper.
