Pocket Watch

This is the third card that I made for Papercraft Essentials on behalf of Crafter's Companion, I created four cards using the Downton Abbey collection.


I think this one would be suitable for either a male or female, just remove the bow and you have a masculine card.


Everything is from the CD with the exception of the gold card stock and ribbon.


I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

PDE Linky Party - Anything Goes
The Sisters of Craft November Challenge - Anything Goes
4 Crafty Chicks Challenge 272 - Ribbon
Southern Girls Challenge - Twine Tape or Ribbon
WordArt Wednesdays Challenge 209 - Anything Goes

I love this kind of gender neutral card. I actually think the bow could be left untouched even if you give this to a man as it's black and not very feminine as such. Love the metal embellies too and the way you layered this card...

Lauren Hatwell said...

Lovely. Very clever construction. Have a lovely weekend Pauline. I hope your son is feeling better too. Lx

Love those corner brads that really are a wonderful final touch to the amazing card. I love everything about this card and as you mentioned it could be an any gender card. Pocket watches intrigue me.

Oooh this is a gorgeous vintage card Pauline… Love those rich, decadent papers and the lovely green ribbon/bow…. and the wonderful metal embellies are just perfect… this is a fab design and I agree, would suit male or female! I also agree with Pia... think you could get away with this bow for male as the colour is dark!
Hope you have a great weekend!
Big hugs, Sue B xx
