Hi folks! Here's a card I gave to my Dad for Father's Day.... making it took me right back to my childhood as my Dad, 'Manny', had his own business 'Manny's Typewriter Services' and little shop/workshop of which I spent many a happy hour watching him repair and service typewriters. I can remember the smell of the oil and noise of the machinery. Dad's shop got me started on my love of paper and road to creativity!
For this card I made my background by using the stamps from the Sam Poole Vintage Typewriter A5 stamp sheet. I stamped the alphabet strip onto kraft card with versamark and embossed with clear powder. I inked the edges. I stamped the typewriter onto kraft card and cut it out. I then used a graphics program to print out the sentiment. I stamped over the sentiment with the typewriter stamp (I cut away the blank rubber from the sheet of paper on the rubber stamp so I could centralise the sentiment) I cut out paper/sentiment and made a couple of slits on the bar on the typewriter and threaded the paper/sentiment through. I popped some cream twill tape on the card, topped it with the typewriter and held it in place with the paper clip.
I used the fabulous typewriter keys stamps to stamp out the letters onto kraft card. I cut each one out and used little foam pads to adhere to the card. I added glossy accents to the letters as a finishing touch.
Ciao for now
