I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! We spent yesterday cheering on our Saskatchewan Roughriders to a Grey Cup victory! I couldn't be more excited or proud of our team!
I decided to try something a little more vintage when I sat down to make this card. I've always admired the soft colors, torn edges, and lace trim details of cards done in this fashion, but I find it hard to execute when I sit down to try. Oh well, practice makes perfect they say!
Stamp sets: Stippled Blossoms, Woodgrain, Best of Love,
Cardstock: Blushing Bride, Very Vanilla, Soft Suede
Ink: Blushing Bride, Pink Pirouette, Soft Suede, Chocolate Chip, Crumb Cake, Old Olive, Always Artichoke
Accessories: Antique Brads, Crochet Trim, Sponges, Distressing Tool, Large Oval Punch, Stamp-a-ma-jig, post it notes, Tombow liquid adhesive, Sticky Strip, Stampin Dimensionals
Begin by stamping the brown flowers onto Very Vanilla cardstock. Stamp the flower images onto a post it note and cut out with papersnips. Overlay over the brown flowers and stamp the pink flowers and the green leaves. Overlay all flowers with a post it and stamp the Woodgrain image onto any remaining white space. Using a Distressing Tool distress all edges of the cardstock. Using a sponge and Crumb Cake ink lightly "burnish" the Woodgrain stamped area and all edges. Cut a mat slightly larger than the Very Vanilla mat from Soft Suede. Distress all edges before adhering the Very Vanilla mat on top. Stamp the sentiment from the Best of Love set and punch out with the Large Oval punch. Sponge the edges with Crumb Cake ink and adhere with a dimensional. Add a bow made from Crochet ribbon and add an Antique brad to the center before adhering to the cardstock with Sticky Strip. Glue the layers onto a Blushing Bride card base.
I'm off to catch up on weekend projects that got pushed aside for football! Stayed tuned later this week for Blog Candy - I'll share all the details tomorrow! Have a great day :)
