Vintage Soho Subway
When I saw the PPA178colors at The Pals Paper Arts this week, I immediately thought of the Soho Subway Designer Series Paper (DSP) and decided to pull out the page that has “Soho New York”. I have found it a bit difficult to figure out what to do with this particular sheet of DSP, so I decided to create a vintage collage using previously stamped images along with distressing.
If you have not had the chance to stop by to visit The Pals Paper Arts site yet, I hope you will find the time – they have a fantastic Design Team and many wonderful entries each week!
To create this card:
Stamp the typewriter image from the retired set, Established Elegance and the Jumbo Wheel, Shop Around using Early Espresso Classic Ink onto Whisper White cardstock.
“Fussy-cut” out the typewriter and cut the wheeled images apart. Use the Distressing Tool to distress the Shop Around images and apply Crumb Cake and Early Espresso Classic Ink with Sponge Daubers to “antique” the paper on all of the images.
Cut the Soho Subway DSP apart, distress the edges and apply Early Espresso Classic Ink.
Use the Big Shot to emboss a piece of Crisp Cantaloupe using the Woodgrain Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder and the Lacy Brocade Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder to emboss the Soho Subway Summer Starfruit DSP.
Distress the edges of the embossed Summer Starfruit DSP layer and sponge Early Espresso Classic Ink to both of the embossed panels. Adhere the Crisp Cantaloupe embossed panel to the Whisper White card base.
Adhere the Summer Starfruit layer to a piece of Early Espresso cardstock (distress the edges of the Early Espresso as well), add the 5/8” Early Espresso Triple Satin Ribbon bow and add to the Crisp Cantaloupe card base.
Arrange the elements onto the page and add the rolled flowers with the Pearls to finish off the card.
