Vintage Thank You!
Thursday, January 3, 2013
Today, my card starts with a standard A2 (4.25" x 5.5") card base in black. On the left side of the card is a strip of striped card stock. I've stamped the word vintage from the sentiment stamp down a strip of twill tape and then stitched it over top. To the right, a rectangle of coordinating designer paper that's also been stitched.
Next comes another piece of coordinating paper in a floral pattern. I used the MFT Die-namics Fishtail Flags STAX cut this piece and again, it was stitched. Then a rectangle cut with the MFT Die-namics LLD Insert-It 3 x 4 insert in a coordinating dot print, again stitched. I've used the MFT Die-namics Mini Double Dot Border for the little black border on the right side of the rectangle.
The typewriter image was die-cut and stamped (you guessed it....the MFT Die-namics Just My Type Die & Stamp Set).
The designer papers have all been distressed and inked. The little paper sentiment has been inked and then I added some water droplets for an aged paper look.
The flower has been made with the MFT Die-namics Flower Medley. Love this set...so many fabulous shapes and sizes to make lots of different looks. A stitched button completes the center of the flower. Another little strip of twill topped by another stitched button is my only other embellishment.
Here's what I used:
Paper: SU! Naturals Ivory, SU! Basic Black and Graphic 45 A Ladies Diary Collection
Ink: Distress Ink in Walnut Stain and Versafine in Onyx Black
Stamps: My Favorite Things Just My Type
All the other stuff: Big Shot Pro; MFT Die-namics: Fishtail Flags STAX, LLD Insert-It 3 x 4, Mini Double Dot Border, Just My Type, Flower Medley; twill tape, sponges, misc. buttons, thread, sewing machine, Jody's Sticky Stuff Dots, distressing tool
So happy you could join me today! Hope you are having a fantastic week! And a very big thank you to Kim at MFT for your amazing generosity!!!
