Imagine The Possibilities- A Vintage Graduation
I needed another graduation card for a young lady that likes to read historical novels so I thought the retired set, Friendship’s Journey would be the perfect choice.
To create this card:
Using the Embossing Buddy®, de-static a piece of Whisper White cardstock and stamp the image from Friendship’s Journey and sentiment from Word Play using Versamark™ ink. Apply Stampin’ Emboss® Early Espresso Embossing Powder and heat with the Heat Tool.
Once cooled, color with the vintage girl image using Stampin’ Write markers- So Saffron, River Rock, Wild Wasabi, Crumb Cake, Blush Blossom, Bashful Blue, Elegant Eggplant, Wisteria Wonder and Perfect Plum. Distress the edges with the Distressing Tool and use a Sponge Dauber to apply Crumb Cake and Soft Suede Classic Ink to “antique” the paper.
Ink the vintage girl image with Crumb Cake Classic Ink and stamp over the sentiment. Punch out using the 2 ½” Circle Punch and adhere a 2 ½” circle of Early Espresso cardstock behind the sentiment.
Use the Big Shot™ to emboss a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock with the Lacy Brocade Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder (ink the interior of the folder with Crumb Cake Classic Ink prior to embossing).
Add the 5/8” Satin Ribbon triple ribbon bow and sentiment. Adhere the focal image using Stampin’ Dimensionals®. Add the Elegant Eggplant rolled flowers with Pearl centers to finish off the card.
Stamp Sets: Friendship’s Journey, Word Play
Ink: Versamark™, Stampin’ Write Markers- So Saffron, River Rock, Wild Wasabi, Crumb Cake, Blush Blossom, Bashful Blue, Elegant Eggplant, Wisteria Wonder and Perfect Plum
