One for the Men!

The prize this month is fantastic:

Wouldn't this be fab to win?

For my DT piece I decided that I wanted to use a Saturated Canary stamp of a young man, which I thought had a retro feel to it. I coloured him in with my copics and cut him out. I used the print and cut on my Cameo to make the mats, tag and "record". I made a retro centre for the record, punched a hole in the middle and then glued it to an old cd. I cut the sentiment for the tag out of viyl on my Cameo, I just love how tiny you can cut the letters! I then put the pieces into a cd cover to keep safe and thought, "I like that look!" so I thought I would use the cover on my card. I used the cameo to cut a black film strip to go behind the cover.
When I went to finish the card I had a cup of tea and was looking for a coaster... light bulb moment! 

I sprayed the record with varnish and hey presto, a coaster !!! A card and gift in one :) 
Hope you like it,
Denyse XXX
I would like to enter this for the Crafting Cafe Challenge Anything Goes
