Just Your Type Of Birthday.......

........using the Vintage Typewriter set by Sam Poole from Creative Expressions.
I have stamped the vintage typewriter onto cream card using coffee Archival ink, added Happy Birthday and cut out.  I have stamped the image once again but this time onto shrink plastic.
I have used strips of calico in the background which I have machine stitched onto the card.
I have added some of Tim's Idea-ology, a pen nib, jump rings and a hinge clip and added VINTAGE using the typewriter alphabet stamp.

Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment, much appreciated.  Tracy x x

Another fab card and I LOVE what you've done with it!! All those details are just wonderful!!

Hope you manage to get a copy of Making Cards soon - I'm lucky that a small WHSmith opened in our local town and they always seem to have it super early and I'm usually there as soon as the doors open!! lol
