Sherlock Holmes birthday card

Hi everyone,

I had actually planned a little break for myself, after the 12 tags of christmas. But I still had a to make a birthday card for a friend of mine. And I also wanted to join in again with Simon Says Stamp and Show. This time the theme is depth.
My friend wanted to see the new movie of Sherlock Holmes. So we (Lein and I) give her cinema vouchers as her gift. Yesterday, I visited Ira's blog ​​and she had a super fun idea for a Christmas card with a plain ticket. That was such a great idea for the birthday card. So I visited this site and made a plain ticket. And I wanted to make the card a Sherlock Holmes theme.
This is the result:


The materials I used:
  • Distress Ink: stormy sky, faded jeans, sapphire chipped, frayed burlap
  • Stamps: Tim Holtz
  • Perfect pearls: Pewter
  • Perfect medium
  • Versamark
  • Embossing Powder: Clear
  • Paper distresser
  • 3d foam
  • Gear, spinner, fastener
  • Twine
  • Hinge clip

Thanks so much for stopping by! See you next time!

  13. Hee Sandra,

    Nou eindelijk even tijd om je blog goed te bekijken!

    Het is zo leuk om jouw stijl te zien ontwikkelen, vanaf het begin tot nu, echt leuk!

    Je weet ik ben dol op tim, en vind deze tag echt heel erg leuk gedaan ook met het ticket!
    En de 12 tags...ja super!
    Zelf niet aan meegedaan, had nachtdiensten die tijd, maar wie weet volgend jaar?!?

    Groetjes Daphne

  14. Dag Sandra,

    mooi geschenk !

    Je ganse creatie ademt inderdaad een industriële sfeer uit !

    Het grijs met de spatten als achtergrond geeft echt een metaaleffect.
    Ik vraag me wel af hoe je de letters van Sherlock Holmes hebt gedaan ? Ze lijken geëmbossed...

    Heb je het vliegticket ook helemaal zelf gemaakt ? Met een template op de computer ?...

    groetjes uit België
