Vintage Memories

It's another busy, busy week but just wanted to drop by and show a card, featuring another one of the fabulous stamps from The Crafthouse Press' new stamp range.

When it comes to making men's cards...I think we all can find it a struggle to find an appropriate image that would suit, but these vintage images are ideal.
I wanted to create a really vintage feel to this card and to achieve this, I used some beautiful papers from HOTP and then using Tim Holtz's On The Edge dies from Sizzix, I die cut the edges of the paper to give this fab decorative border. Once all my matts and layers were cut, I used a distressing tool around the paper and then distress inks for a vintage look.

I stamped the image onto a matt of white card, die cut with a Spellbinders Labels Die and then coloured it in with Aquamarkers. Finally, I used some more distress ink to build up the background to my image. As finishing touches, I added one of Tim's Adage Tickets, some ribbon tied into a bow and buttons.



Thanks for stopping by and taking a look at my lil creation...
Love Emma

    you captured a vintage day out on the links so well...the image, of course, is wonderful but for me, it's the backing paper! and I love how you curled the corner..really nice touch! :D
