Wow, the last month of the year, yes, this year has flown by, a definite sign of age I am sure! Just 24 days till Christmas so since the next few weeks we will be making lots of Christmas stuff, let's start the month off without Christmas.
As a Stampin' Up demonstrator, we get a magazine each month from Stampin' Up called Stampin' Sucess filled with lots of information and card samples. One of the cards they showed in the December issue was a pocket card. I used the basic template changing up the stamps and colors. The card uses a standard 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 cardbase, with the fold on the bottom to form a pocket. Fold down the top edge, tear and sponge on some color to add texture. Use sticky strip to seal the pocket.
I used Crumb Cake (I still type Kraft first) for the card and rolled on Very Vintage wheel using Crumb Cake ink. The pocket holds a Very Vanilla card matted with Rich Razzleberry.
The flower is from Charming and I inked up the stamp with Old Olive and Rich Razzleberry markers. Using the 1 3/8 and 1 1/4" circle punches, I punched the circular matting for the 1 3/8" tag which is attached with Linen thread onto Rich Razzleberry 1/8" Tafetta ribbon.
certain items from past minis are still available? Charming is one of those sets and it is one of my favorites. This simple card uses Ruby Red as its base and then the Square Lattice Impressions folder on Close to Cocoa and a thin strip of Ruby Red punched with the Scallop Edge punch. Mellow Moss frames the image panel that uses two of the stamps from the Charming Set, the background stamped off once in Close to Cocoa and the flower spray that uses Ruby Red and Old Olive markers to ink it up. And inside
The stamp set Charming was in our Holiday Mini and is still available. It is a lovely set with a bit of a vintage feel.
Today's card was for a Case challenge over on SUDSOL, a demonstrator site. Since I am trying to use up my retiring cardstock, today's card uses Barely Banana, Ruby Red and Old Olive( yes, Old Olive is NOT retiring)
is definitely not my usual style but I must say you got to try it. I am pleased with this card and it definitely has that "Vintage feel"
I used Kraft cardstock and Close to Cocoa ink for the entire card and gave distinction to the layers by sponging ink on all the edges. Card base, simply sponge all edges, next layer, wheeled Very Vintage jumbo wheel across the entire piece and then sponged the edges. The flower from Charming ( a set in the Christmas Mini, but still available) is stamped on another piece of cardstock and edges sponged. I then scalloped a strip with the Scallop Trim FREE Sale-a-bration punch and sponged all the edges and tied on a piece of Kraft Taffetta ribbon. Wonderful Mother comes from Well Scripted in the Occasions Mini and punched with the Large Oval punch and again, sponge those edges.
