Just Add Ink have a new challenge this week. They are asking for something that has a Vintage look. It has been some time since I last did a vintage layout, so this was an interesting challenge for me. I started with a standard base card made from Camel coloured textured cardstock. I then trimmed a piece of Cream textured cardstock that was slightly smaller than the face of the base card. I embossed the cream cardstock with the Devine Swirl embossing folder. I then trimmed 2 sheets of 6″ Kaiser craft designer paper from the Tea at Elsie’s Collection. Using my fingernail, I ran it along the edges of the trimmed designer paper to distress the edges slightly. I adhered the designer paper to the embossed cream cardstock as well as a piece of lace around the cardstock. I then trimmed a piece of camel cardstock and designer paper to use as a backing for the sentiments. I pierced the corners of the designer paper to add some dimension to the paper as well as using the distressing technique I mentioned above. I stamped the Birthday sentiment from the Sincere Salutation stamp set using Chocolate Chip ink. I stamped the greeting on a piece of designer paper, which I then punched out using the Large Oval punch. I then punched out another piece of designer paper using the Scallop Oval Punch, which I adhered to the back of the punched out birthday sentiment. Using foam dots, I adhered the sentiment to the backing cardstock, which I then adhered to the card. I finished off by adding two flowers from the Kaiser Devonshire embellishment pack, to make one flower. I placed a pearl in the centre of the flower and adhered it to the card. I think my card has a vintage look and I hope its okay.
