Vintage Pocket Watch, Fob and Key

Good Sunday morning.  My masculine vintage project is a little out of my wheelhouse but I had fun putting it together.  I have had the Impression Obsession Pocket Watch and It’s About Time sets for a while but haven’t used it.  I need a masculine card and thought the watch paired with images from the Border, Label, Medallion and Key and paper from the Botanical Tea Patterns and Solids

I started by stamping the watch face on vanilla cardstock using versa and embossing with gold embossing powder. I then applied versa to a piece of scrap cardstock, heat embossed with gold powder and cut out all the die pieces. I attached the watch to the face with mounting tape and braided strands of metallic gold twine to create the fob chain.

I crimped the blue paper and layered with vanilla to create a contrast piece for the patterned paper and attached to the card base with mounting tape.  I thought the medallion made a nice fob for the chain and the key was a third element to add interest to the card.  Every time I make a card with lots of gold embossing I want to kick myself because they are so hard to get good photographs.  I have a short memory.  LOL!
