Make it Mondays - Vintage Typewriter

Happy Wednesday! I hope you are all well! We are, but we miss summer here - still waiting for it to return for some days! Today I have a very masculine card for you. Something different from my usual projects! I played around with this week's Make it Mondays technique and just wasn't able to receive a satisfying result with the ribbon and the Copics. I ended up with a small piece of ribbon that looked quite ok for me. I had to improvise and used it like this:


That vintage typewriter die-cut was sitting on my desk for a while and I wanted to use it. I think it works really well with the Newsprint stamp set! I don't know why, but I always think that a masculine project has to have something metal on it. I had to add those staples to the corner. Because they were silver and didn't match that vintage look, I colored them with a brown Copic to make them look older.



Here is the closer look (although you better don't look at that ribbon too closely):


Finally a card I can give to a man. An old one. Hehe. If you are interested in watching how beautiful a copic-striped ribbon can look, just go here. Nichole's project is breath-taking again.

Have a sunny day, sweet friends! And thanks for visiting!

Hugs and Love,
Vanessa

Great card, I just love it. Wonder how many of us even know what typewriter tape is. I am that old.
