Vintage Birthday


This week is stamp camp at Inkup. I had two cards to create for camp. This first one
was to use Established Elegance to create a birthday card.

I always see this set as vintage (though I have seen some great ideas in the catalog that don’t go that route). So when designed this card, I wanted a shabby chic feel.

I started by stamping the typewriter image where I wanted it on the main panel. Then I went back and added the details – flourish and seal in pretty in pink, partially inked Travel Journal wheel randomly stamped down the right side (in crumb cake), and finished off with some spritzing with the Suede marker.

I distressed the edges of the panel and then adhered it to the card base. I laid down a strip of sticky tape and adhered the ribbon, making ruffles along the way. The final touches were the popped sentiment and button (which is centered in the seal).

Thanks for taking a peek!
