I have been busy working on my youngest daughter's birthday card over the last couple of days, but can't show it yet as she sometimes pops on my blog, and I would hate her to see it before the day. I can't believe how organized I am, but she is due home from university tomorrow for the summer, so I thought I would try and get ahead!
I have picked another card, which was made for a work colleague, to show you today. It's a little different from my usual style (just to show I can!) Lol. I am always being teased about my 'cutsie' style, so here goes ...
It's a 6x6" card matted with brown pearlised card and then paper from the Tim Holtz 'Vintage Shabby' paper stack which is inked around the edge with distress ink. The main stamp is called 'Collage Take Time' from Hero Arts and is stamped onto ivory pearlised card and embossed with copper embossing powder. I tore the edges and inked with one of my all time favourite distress inks - walnut stain. The two tickets are stamped using 'Invoke' stamps and cut out. The card is finished with a die cut swirl, a couple of punched leaves, three co-ordinating buttons, a couple of amber adhesive gems and some 'birthday' wording. I think it definitely has a 'vintage' feel to it - hope you like it.
