To try something new, I had recently picked up embossing folders on sale at Tuesday Morning. It has a quilt pattern. I wiped wet ink over the embossing folder and placed some of the same tan paper on it and ran my hands over the paper, using it like a stamp. After it was dry, I ran it through my Big Shot to get the impression on the stamped paper. Love how it turned out...you can see bits of it on the right side.
I stamped the sentiment on a piece of ephemera and backed it with the patterned paper.
I placed more of the same red patterned paper underneath the stamped image. To create the card, I used bits of ephemera in various colors to match the flowers on the chair and added faux flowers, twine, Tim Holtz flowers, buttons, enamel dots, fabric, and a metal embellishment.
Felt good to return to return to vintage before I turn back to my ATCs. I really like this stamp, and I’ll need to try another card as I think I can achieve a better look with it. But for now, hope you enjoy this card, and, till next time, happy crafting!
