H2H #8 Stamp Your Own Background

Yay me! It's Monday and I managed to get my card in early for a change! This week's challenge from Heart to Heart is to random stamp your own background. 

I random stamped a vellum overlay to created these cards:

Since I had stamped whole sheets of vellum, I was able to make a whole set in different colors.  The clocks just screamed pocket watch to me, so I made them in mascline colors. I never seem to have enough manly cards (I have 7 brother-in-laws!) I left the insides blank, as the outside sentiment could be suitable for a birthday, grad or thank you.

Here is what the card looks like spread open:

The card is standard size 5.5 x 4.25". I random stamped the vellum in Staz-On white ink, then cut 8 x 5" pieces to fit over the card, scoring them in the middle. Place the vellum inked side down, and adhere with mini glue dots at the fold and under the sentiment so they don't show. The sentiment was stamped in ink to match the cs used, and embellished with a matching button.
