We’re at the end of the marathon!! Unless I get some cards done tonight and feel like posting them….at this moment I can’t see that happening…..lol. So this card is right up my alley I tell you. A bit of a vintage feel and I’m in heaven!
Check out this stamp!! If this doesn’t scream vintage, I don’t know what would!! It’s from the Stampin’ Up! set called ‘Rue Des Fleus’ and it was in the Jan – Apr flyer. I never did order it and I really hope I don’t regret it….lol. It was stamped onto the cardstock in versamark and embossed with clear embossing powder. Then the image was inked over using a dauber and the Soft Suede ink. The image was then punched out and matted onto the front of the oval Designer Frame embossed image that was embossed onto the Baja Breeze cardstock and torn off. Love the look!
The Designer Series paper was embossed using the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder to give it some depth. Sentiment stamped, punched and inked and we have ourselves a neat little vintage card!
Okay, now I’m off to finish making supper and then to my room to craft the evening away!!
We been having a long stetch of unseasonally mild weather lately and yesterday it decided to go from rain to snow to cotton balls!!! I’ve never seen snow come down like that in Saskatchewan before and I tell you, those flakes were HUGE!! They were honestly the size of cotton balls!! It was still very mild out so we”ve ended up with this wet icy mess now and it’s made driving and walking very interesting! I went to my Stampin’ Up! cardmaking class last night and I tell you, I could have skated out of the house when we left. There was a layer of ice on everything.
Anyway…..we made some gorgeous cards last night and I always have soooo much fun with these ladies. I’ll share the cards we made with you cause they’re so fun!
I love the colors on this card!! The card base is made with Very Vanilla. We started the layers of the card front with a piece of More Mustard and a strip of Spice Cake designer paper. We added a square of Chocolate Chip that had been embossed with the Lattice Square embossing folder. I love the versatility of that folder……had to order one for myself!! The beautiful blue Pool Party cardstock piece was layered over the embossed square and then we got to play with the ruffled ribbon. A strip of the 3/8″ Pool Party ruffled ribbon was wrapped around the layers. I really like the texture of this ribbon. The sentiment, from the Happiest Birthday Wishes set was stamped onto Very Vanilla in Chocolate Chip and attached to another piece of Chocolate Chip. This was attached to the card with Dimentionals to give it some depth. I love this Birthday stamp. I decided to color in the ‘i’ of Birthday with the Pool Party marker to tie the sentiment into the color palet of the card. I love all the layers on this card and we had allot of fun putting it together. We decided as a group to make two of each card this year and so some of us took our piece of the Spice Cake designer paper and turned it around for a bit of a different look…..
I can’t decide which one I like better……hmmmm
