I’ve found a spare minute to make something to post! WOW! Between Sale-A-Bration workshops and classes and other creative journey’s, I’m super excited to share this card with you.
The colour combo for this card is Chocolate Chip, Tempting Turquoise, Very Vanilla and Ruby Red. Not your typical colour combo and certainly not one I’d think of as vintage, but I think it works for a masculine card.
I was inspired by the Stamping 411 sketch for this week and knew I wanted to give a try to making a masculine vintage card (not sure that even really exists, but I’m trying!).
I used my Very Vintage wheel on some white tissue paper and embossed it with black embossing powder. I then crumpled and adhered it to some Very Vanilla cardstock using an Anywhere Glue Stick. This just gives the imaging some great texture and the vanilla shows through the tissue very nicely.
I layered this on a piece of Tempting Turquoise on which I’d paper pierced down the sides and roughed up the edges. I then adhered this to a piece of Vellum cardstock. Again, just for extra texture and dimension.
Before adhering this to the card, I stamped the large floral stamp from Elements of Style (coming soon in the Summer Mini!) in Basic Black on the Chocolate chip base.
For the finishing touches, I looped a piece of 5/8″ Chocolate Chip grosgrain and added a tag to the centre. The Chocolate Chip tag is cut with my Sizzix Big Shot and the Lots of Tags sizzlets. Layered on that is a Ruby Red Modern Label punch and onto that I added a Word Window in Very Vanilla. On that I rubbed on “forever” from the Chat Room Rub Ons. I then added a couple of Tempting Turquoise brads.
I really enjoyed making this card and think I’ve made headway on making vintage masculine!
Oh, side note – I’ve noticed a lot of hits on my Artisan Award projects from last year. Thank you for looking! I wish all demonstrators who will be participating this year the best of luck and the most original creativity you can muster. I promise I’ll be posting a little more frequently once my projects are in the mail (by week’s end – wahoo, ahead of schedule!).
