I thought I would show you a card I created with some of the ‘remains’ from my last marathon card making effort. I went for another vintage style card. I came across a new challenge blog and thought I would give it a go. The site is here at Jac-inks Papercraft challenges. They have just started up so why not give them a go. Their first challenge is a colour challenge with Neutrals plus 1 other colour.
I salvaged one of the Crumb Cake bases I had discarded. This had the swirl from ‘Elements of Style’ stamped in Crumb Cake. On the Very Vanilla Card I stamped the ‘French Script’ in Crumb Cake and stamped the flowers in Soft Suede. I scrunched up the card tightly and reopened it, then scrunched it again. After I opened it out again and flattened it slightly, I swiped some Crumb cake ink over it to pick up the ink in the creases. I sponged Crumb cake around the edges. I scrunched up some Baja Breeze card and inked the edges with Soft Suede. I debated so long “To tear or not to Tear”???? I kept tearing a bit off the Vanilla card and a bit off the Baja Breeze and a bit more on the Vanilla. In the end I had to stop or I wouldn’t have anything left!!
I wrapped some Victoria Lace around the card and cut out a tag with the ‘Lots of Tags’ Die in Baja Breeze and stamped on the text from “Elements of Style”. I punched a circle with the 1 3/8″ in Crumb Cake. These were then both sponged with Soft Suede. I raised these up with dimensionals. I added some pearls and a Vintage Tag with ‘L’ (for Life) in Soft Suede. This one certainly didn’t take as long as the last one!
I hope you like it??? I think I will go with some simple cards for a bit. These vintage style cards are hard work – on the brain!!!
Thanks for looking and I hope you visit again soon. I have some more Sale-A-Bration cards to show you.
