Williams' Soap Masculine Pocket Card


I like the challenge of making a masculine card. When I received a packet of free manly-type goodies from The Funkie Junkie Boutique, I put them aside until an idea formed. Well, one did and this is what came out of it.


The papers are from various older Graphic 45 collections. The mustache, Williams' Soap ad, comb charm, and wood button are all from FJB.


I used Alterations Postage Stamp Frame to cut this black layer. The Distress Ink is Walnut Stain.


The wood button is has a clock face with a tiny mustache and pipe. I tied it with some natural May Arts burlap string. It's sitting on an antique gold filigree I got on clearance at Michaels.


The scrap of ribbon was tied around the burlap string. I'm sorry but I can't remember who I purchased it from. I buy a lot of this stuff and have several bundles. I colored the mustache die cut with Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain DI.


 The comb charm is attached with an Idea-ology Ring Fastener. 


The tag is tied through the wide eyelet with black seam binding. An Idea-ology Muse Token is pinned on with a tiny safety pin purchased from Hobby Lobby. I thought this card would made a great holder for one of the Penmaker's turned safety razors. Now if I can get him to make one, I'll be all set.

Thank you for stopping by!
