In The Deep End with A Man's Card

Happy Monday fellow bloggers!!

I tackled A Man's Card today for the Secret Saturday Challenge, and decided to link it with the In The Deep challenge from Cupcake Craft Challenges which has asked to create depth on the card.

In order to create the depth on the frame I have used a technique I found on You Tube ages ago and absolutely love, here is the video:

And here is my card:

 I made these buttons out of Polymer Clay and then rubbed over them with some copper crackle paint.

I shall also be entering this into Make It Monday 85
