Herrekort med Tim Holtz preg!:)

Hei på dere!:)
Her skinner solen i dag også, men det ble tid for et kort allikevel!:))
Jeg har laget et herrekort..og det er ikke noen enkel oppgave, for meg!:) Men med denne koffert dies'en fra Tim Holtz ble det bare gøy:).
Jeg har brukt T.H. "Black Soot" distress kartong, og embosset det med Tim. H embossing folder-Steampunk set, for så og pusse litt på det, sånn at kofferten ser litt sitt og velbrukt ut:). "Reimer", hjørner osv, er stanset ut i kraft kartong, og svertet med Vintage Photo.


 Og..et par tannhjul fra T.H!:)

 Teksten her, som er stemplet på Tim H.'s "Journaling Tickets", er fra en stempleplate fra Et Trykk-Norsk Stempelblad.
Under har jeg satt en bit "tissue tape":)
Nøkkelhullet og nøkkelen er også fra Tim'ern (ble et veldig T-H preget kort dette her, hehe).

Kortet inn, som jeg har laget en lomme til tag, for å kunne skrive en hilsen til jubilanten!:)
Teksten som er stemplet er fra Tim Holtz stempelplate-Stuff to say, og mannen med paraplyen er fra "Creative Muse set", + "post card" som også er fra Tim Holtz. Tannhjulene som er festet på lommen, er chipbord fra Whimsy Stampssom jeg har farget med Distress Stain-"Vintage photo og Walnut Stain" 
Baksiden er enkel, og det er tøft nok med dette embossede inntrykket!:)

Det var alt for meg idag, så da ønsker jeg dere en strålende dag, og tusen takk for at dere tok dere tid til et koselig besøk!:)

Jeg legger in kortet mitt på disse utfordringen:
Southern Girls - Boys/Men
Truly Scrumption - Distressing
Use it Tuesday - Use something you hoard (my clock)
Klem fra Ellen:)
