Kindness Matters

I'm going vintage today with this pretty card. Lots of layers, texture, and sponging add that vintage charm. This was my swap card for a recent swap with a group of demonstrators.

Stamping Vogue Tips:
  • Use the new Designer Frames embossing folders to create a quick frame for your focal image. You can trim around the folder as I did for this card or emboss the frame directly on your card base.
  • When you are going for the vintage look, the En Francais background stamp is perfect for adding another layer of detail to the focal layer.
  • Use a blender pen to softly color the butterflies.
  • Emboss the Very Vanilla layer using the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder to add texture.
  • Sponge the edges of each layer using a sponge dauber.
  • Choose your embellishments to match the theme of your card. The soft seam binding ribbon is easy to tie and matches the soft, aged look. The Antique Brad and Basic Pearls are the finishing touch.
