Men's Fashion

Good Morning everyone, i hope you are having a good week. 

Its time for a new challenge over at cardz4guyz, the theme this fortnight is


So a real challenge for me too, i don't really have any stash for this theme but came across a sheet of paper in a 12x12 paper pad i got from B&M.  Its printed on kraft background so i decided to use Kraft card as my base and a gatefold, with the kind of wardrobe idea. 

A4 gatefold made from Kraft card. I rounded the middle corners.  I found some bluey papers in my stash to use, which i layered onto the front panels., i then cut out from of the icons and a dapper looking chap, inked the edges with vintage photo distress ink.  I arranged these on the front.  Threaded some brass buttons with blue twine and added to embellish.  I then added some chit chat stickers saying
Create Yourself Be Original.

Another view of the front, peeking into the inside

So the inside of my 'wardrobe'   I layered pattern papers onto the panels and more items of clothing etc.  I die cut the sentiment circle from white card and added the circle image of the chaps head - had the idea of being like a mirror or portrait. 

This is the sheet of paper, so it came in useful.  The B&M paper pads are all great quality, almost thin card, and such varied designs in them.  They are all double sided so if you don't like one pattern you can use the other side.  

Items Used:
Crafts You Create paper pad - 'Chic Vintage' by B&M
paper pad - 'Vintage Chic'  by poundland 
MFT birthday sentiment circle die
Tim Holtz Chit Chat stickers
TH vintage photo distress ink
Kraft Card
Brass buttons

How funny, just realised both paper pads have similar names!  

Anyway please do hop over to cardz4guyz to join in and see what everyone comes up with.  

Enjoy your week. Emmax
