Vintage Style!

Happy Sunday!

Here is a card I made while chatting with my mom on the phone yesterday.  I had fun creating the vintage look with the Log Cabin Smooch Spritz, Creamy Caramel sponging, and the distressing tool from the Cutter Kit!

The stamp set is Elements of Style, and will be available beginning May 1st from the new Summer Mini!  (Contact me if you'd like me to send you one in the mail!)  I first stamped the flourish on the Kraft card base with Bravo Burgundy Classic ink, then spritzed the card base with Log Cabin Smooch Spritz (it's like a shimmery bronze/copper color).  I colored in the main image with Rose Red, So Saffron and Old Olive stamp pads and a Blender Pen, then spritzed that as well.  The hummingbird just looks so pretty floating above the flowers.  :)

I just love the look the distressing tool gives the card!  You simply rub the tool along the edge of your cardstock, effortlessly lending to the vintage feel.  I left a sentiment off the card, making it more versatile.. it could really be used for almost anything!

Hope you have a great day!  Thanks for stopping by!
