Cardmaking - June - Vintage
For our first card we made one with a bit of a vintage look!! After not finding enough of what I needed for these card kits in my decorative paper bucket I decided to make up what I needed. I started with brown paper that came in a box a few weeks ago wrapped around something "important". I wrinkled it, opened it up and wrinkled it again and then started adding different colours of brown acrylic paint washes and then wrinkled it again. Once it was dry I ran a dark brown ink pad over the wrinkles to highlight the texture. Added a lighter colour to soften the dark one and I was happy with that.
I added a piece of my new decorative paper to my card front overlapping the section I had embossed. I added a piece of paper lace - from way deep in my stash - being sure to only dab my glue stick on it so the holes would remain open. I layered my collage element over a layer of kraft and mounted it over the end of the ribbon using 3D foam tape. For a little more texture I added a small flower (TH) cut from corrugated cardboard and adhered it to the card front using a brad to which I had added a gold sequin - just a bit of bling!! The images were all different and were cut from a 12 x12 page of scrapbooking paper. I trimmed each image using my Fiskars stamp edger scissors. Just the look I was wanting.
