SUO77 Vintage Birthday
I created this card for the Stampin’ Up! Only SUO77 Birthday Challenge along with the SplitcoaststampersCC437 Color Challenge – please stop by to check out our Design Team projects and the details- hope you will be able to create a project and join us!
To create this card:
Ink the Ex Libris background stamp using Baked Brown Sugar Classic Ink onto Baked Brown Sugar cardstock. Use the Distressing Tool to distress the edges and adhere to a piece of Strawberry Slush cardstock (distress the edge of this layer as well).
Mount the panel onto a Baked Brown Sugar cardstock base and distress the edges, curling the corners a bit.
Create the rolled flowers from Strawberry Slush cardstock using the 1 ¼” Scallop Circle Punch (cut into the circle towards the center and roll up- see the Splitcoaststampers tutorial here) and cut the leaves from Pistachio Pudding cardstock using the Big Shot™ with the Little Leaves Sizzlet™. Add a bit of Baked Brown Sugar Classic Ink using a Sponge Dauber to “antique” the flowers and leaves a bit.
Stamp the label from Everything Eleanor using Baked Brown Sugar onto Strawberry Slush cardstock- carefully cut out by hand and use the Distressing Tool along the edges. Sponge additional Baked Brown Sugar Classic Ink along the edges and add to the card front.
Ink the sentiment from Wetlands using Baked Brown Sugar Classic Ink and stamp onto Baked Brown Sugar cardstock- punch out using the Large Oval Punch and layer two Large Oval pieces from Pistachio Pudding cardstock behind the sentiment oval. Distress and add to an XL Oval piece from Quatrefancy Designer Series Paper (distressed and sponged with Baked Brown Sugar Classic Ink). Layer onto the Strawberry Slush label and add the rolled flowers and leaves.
Stamp the butterfly from Papillon Potpourri using Baked Brown Sugar onto Strawberry Slush cardstock, punch out using the Elegant Butterfly Punch and add to the card using Mini Glue Dots™.
To finish off the card, add Pearls to the corners, center of the rolled flowers, butterfly and edge of the label.
