Vintage Birthday Card
I made a vintage style birthday card using a Crafter's Companon Vintage Decor embossing folder and an old vintage style phone stamp. This card will be entered into the Double D's Challenge which is entitled Looking Back in Time.
The embossing folder from Crafter's Companion was a freebie with an order quite some time ago so I decided that design looked very much like the old wall paper designs did when I was younger. So using some Gina K. Designs Prickly Pear ink I swiped some onto the embossing folder before I embossed the design. I also used Prickly Pear card stock for my card base.
Next I took the Gina K. Designs Just Calling to Say stamp set and with Gina K. Designs Amalgam Jet Black ink I stamped the phone and the sentiment onto Ivory card stock. Both the embossed panel and this panel then were die cut using the Cottage Cutz Double Stitched Rectangle Die set. The next step was to layer them onto black before adding them to the card base.
I finished the card by adding some black gems and an Ivory card stock panel inside so I can write a special message or add a stamped one.
Well, the snow quit yesterday evening and so today we cleaned out the yard and drive way. So until the next round of snow we are good to go again. We only got about 4-5 inches this time too. I heard other places were getting quite a bit more so we were lucky. So if you were in those areas I hope you stayed safe inside and warm. Good card making or crafting weather I guess.
I thank you for the visits and comments and I hope your weekend is a great one.
