A vintage card

July 23, 2011

Well I hope it is anyway.  This is the last card I made for the Design Team at Late Night Stampers this week.

My base card is Early Expresso and I have added a layer of Crumb Cake card.  I embossed the Crumb Cake card with the Framed Tulips Embossing Folder and then using a sponge I lightly rubbed Early Expresso ink over the embossed section.  I stamped the flower image from the  Nature Walk stampset onto Very Vanilla card  using Early Expresso ink which I stamped twice onto scrap paper first.  I also stamped the bee image from the Nature Walk stampset onto the Very Vanilla card using Early Expresso ink which I stamped off onto scrap paper first.  Then I stamped the bird image  and the butterfly image from the same stampset using Early Expresso ink without stamping onto scrap paper first.  I used my Paper Distressing Tool on the edges of the Very Vanilla card and then scrunched it up tightly into a ball and opened it several times to make the paper very soft.  I created a couple of tears and separated the layers in several places,  sponging Crumb Cake and Early Expresso ink onto the exposed inner layers.  I also used a sponge to add Early Expresso ink to the fold lines as well.  I attached the Very Vanilla card to the Crumb Cake card using Mini Glue dots.

Here you can see a close up of the distressed Very Vanilla piece of card.  This is a new way for me to use this stampset which hasn’t seen enough ink since I purchased it.  I’d love to hear your thoughts on this one.

Bye for now, Kris.
