It’s a YAY- SUNDAY again!!! Time to show you another of the week’s new releases at Digistamps 4 Joy:

This image is called “ Briefcase” and I think it will be just great for a masculine card.  There are so few vintage images in the store and so, although this type of drawing is not my strong point, I drew this briefcase.  (When last did you see a vintage briefcase like this?  I can remember one of my teachers having one – and I finished school in 1975!)

To create this card this is what I did :

-          Background DP with a VINTAGE postage theme print  has inked edges
-          I hand cut a red striped shirt and tie and added some faux stitching to the collar and button stand.
-          A maroon die cut was used as a mat behind the fussy cut image that was coloured using alcohol markers
-          Three odd gold coloured buttons from my gran’s button box of vintage buttons were used as embellishments (I used pliers to nip off the loopy thingies at the back)
-          The gold sentiment is a stick-on

This is not the only new release that I think you might like…
