Vintage Floral- Black Cherry Suede

Hi Stampers! 

Since I love vintage style, I had to create another card for the FU14 Friday MashUp Vintage Floral Challenge and loved the colors in this week's JAI75 Just Add Ink Color Challenge.   

Trust me, if you have time, check out the Design Team samples at both sites, the samples are truly gorgeous! 

To create this card:

Stamp the scroll image from Elements of Style in Basic Black on Soft Suede cardstock. 

Stamp the floral image from Elements of Style using Basic Black onto Very Vanilla.  Use blender pens with Cherry Cobbler and Soft Suede ink to color the flowers.  Use a Sponge Dauber with Soft Suede ink and sponge the edges/center to “antique” the paper.  Tear the paper and crumple by hand followed up by more sponging.  Mount onto Soft Suede and add the 5/8’ Black Satin Ribbon.  

Stamp the sentiment and punch out with the Large Oval Punch.  Sponge the edges and layer with the Cherry Cobbler and Basic Black using the Modern Label and XL Decorative Label Punches. 

With the Big Shot and the Beautiful Wings  Embosslit Die, cut out two butterflies from Very Vanilla.  Using Basic Black, stamp the floral image onto the butterflies and sponge with Cherry Cobbler and Soft Suede ink.  Spray with Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint and adhere with glue dots to the card front.

Add pearls to finish off the card. 

Stamp Sets:  Elements of Style, Peace Within
 Ink: Basic Black, Cherry Cobbler, Soft Suede
Cardstock:  Very Vanilla, Basic Black, Soft Suede
Accessories:  Big Shot, Beautiful Wings Embosslit Die, Sponge Daubers, Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint Spray, 5/8” Basic Black Satin Ribbon, Pearls, Punches- Large Oval, Modern Label and XL Decorative Label

I hope you like this card- I had a great time creating it!  Thanks again for stopping by- praying for safety for those of you on your way to convention :-)
