DIY - Flippin Men!

Good Morning peeps!
Here I am with a little DT card I created for
La Pashe 
I used  the Flippin Men DIY download.

I didn't realise that I had run out of the Flippin' Aperture Cards
when I started this but that didn't stop me!

For those of you not familiar with the Flippin' range, it shows the front
& back of an image & you can decoupage both.
 The special aperture cards are designed to allow this.

I decided to use the fun background image provided but
I chopped off the verse which was at the bottom.
I distressed the paper, which is from American Crafts with pair of serated
scissors & some lemon juice, which I browned using my heat gun

Here's the front of the image decoupaged!
I added 3 little metal tool brads at his feet!

The  sentiment was made in my graphics program,
I tried to give that the lemon juice treatment too, but the ink ran,
lol, so I had to print it again! I popped it up on some shaker tape!

A little side view, you can just see the other side of the image inside!

Finally the inside of the card!
Here you can see the reverse of the image!
I had my hubby draw a little pencil plan on the paper but sadly,
 he drew it a bit smaller than I anticipated, so most of it was covered up!
Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you like my card!
