I will explain some of the details that I used. The letters above the card are his initials. I used Rock Candy crackle on them to age them a bit. I stamped the year that my grandfather was born on the front cover.
This is a closer look at the front cover. I covered chip board with some scrapbook paper that looked like old leather. I would love to take credit for making it look like worn leather but luckly for me it is just the way it came. The pocket watch is a stamp that I stamped on some scrapbook paper and used a Perfect Medium Pen, went around the outside of the watch and embossed it with Pirate's Gold embossing powder. My sister gave me some watch faces and they were a perfect fit.
Here is the inside of the card. My handsome Grandfather probably in his early 20's. Some of the methods that I used putting this together were new to me and I did learn that vellum does not work well with glue. Hence the bubbles in the images on the left.
A closer look. Although I was extremely disappointed when it happened, now I think it give it character.
