Let's Go

Time for a vintage style card today. I do love making this style of card a a complete change to the girlie cards. I have used one of my current favourite paper pads, Bo Bunny Weekend Market. You only need to use one paper as it is quite busy with lots of suitcases. I coloured some scrim with a Promarker, stamps are Papermania, Tim Holtz and Crafty Sentiments. They have been stamped onto kraft and then distressed with a TH tool and DI Frayed Burlap. I added some baker's twine, a globe charm from Ebay and I made a couple of hinges using part of a Marianne die and kraft card.

I hope you all have a fabulous weekend and that the weather stays fine. I am selling at a craft fair all day Saturday, having a day out at a steam fair on Sunday and selling again on Monday at a large fete, weather permitting as it is outside and I am not putting up the gazebo in the rain.

Hi Marianne. I really like your use of Tim's vintage suitcase paper in your background. It looks fantastic and is perfect for your travel theme. The postcards and stamping on them is a great embellishment. I also really like the twine and the little globe charm. Thanks for sharing your card with us at Simon Says Stamp and Show. <3 Candy
