I love this card, I made it for a Pootles team card swap and it has proved popular on YouTube and I realised today that I never blogged it! Oh dear - better late than never!
To make this card I used:
A standard card base from Extra Thick Whisper White cardstock 5 7/8th x 4 1/8th
A mat in Crumb Cake cardstock 3 x 4 1/8th
A mat in Whisper White yardstick 1/4 inch smaller on both sides 2 3/4 x 3 7/8th
A Delicate Doilies - 1 cut in half
Background Bits hostess stamp set
Tranquil Tulips hostess stamp set
Inks I used were - Crumb Cake - Smokey Slate - Sahara Sand - Powder Pink - Lemon Lime Twist
I started by using Smoky Slate with the words stamp and stamped the top and bottom section of the card blank - you will not see the middle section so no need to stamp on that.
Then I used Powder Pink and the rectangle lacy stamp and stamped a stripe through the text on both sections.
Then I used the long border stamp and stamped in Sahara Sand over the Powder Pink stripe.
Then I used the fancy flour de lis stamp from Timeless Textures and stamped in Lemon Lime Twist, but I wanted it really subtle so I stamped off twice before I stamped on the card. one was then stamped in each corner.
Then I stamped the tulips on the Whisper White mat - I did this first in Powder Pink
Then I went over the Pink in Crumb Cake to give it that faded vintage look.
I then stamped the stems in Lemon Lime Twist, but stamped off once so the colour was not so strong.
Then I once again stamped over the stems in Crumb Cake.
I then stamped the sentiment in Crumb Cake.
I then sponged the mat using Crumb Cake to give it the full vintage affect.
I did the same with the card base and the Crumb Cake mat.
Then I also aged the doilies with the Crumb Cake in the same way using a sponge.
I used Tombow to assemble the card and finished off with 3 pearls.
Hope you like this - let me know what you think and of you do it yourself I would love to see your cards so please share your pictures with me. Thank you Gez x
