Such A Gentleman

What a Gent? Well, he is from a new e-kit coming out soon from Making Handmade Cards. Isn’t he cool? I just had to make a vintage style card for him with the ‘writing’ paper which comes in the kit.

I love paper with writing on it. You know the type of designs I mean where it might be a page from a dictionary or just paper with old writing in the design? I seem to just collect it – is that just me? LOL!

Have a Vintage Style Sunday

    Hi Kim

    Beautiful card. Great image and I am totally there with you on the old writing thing. It just doesn't always fit in with what I am creating though so it "stays around" just waiting for that special moment when it will come into its own!!

    Have a lovely Sunday.

    Love Jules xx

    I love paper with script/writing/old book pages. I don't have much though, that's a bit of an oversight…should probably rectify that immediately. LOL!

    Love the image, and love those corners!
