Vintage Journey

It's inspiration time with the second week of our challenge at Crafty Ribbons where our theme is Vintage. I decided to join in both weeks as I love making vintage cards as you know.

The backing paper is Bo Bunny Et cetera and was perfect for the card I had in mind. I used ric rac ribbon with a brad to look as though a journey was plotted on the map. Both the ric rac and seam binding which I distressed with DI Vintage Photo (there's a lot of that been used on this card) are from Crafty Ribbons. The car is Tim Holtz stamp from the Journey stamps set and the destination stamp from a Papermania journey stamp set.I used a Tim Holtz Sizzix die with thick kraft card and heat embossed them with copper. I rarely heat emboss bt love the effect so will try to do it more often. Finished off with a couple of TH wheels and cogs and a Kaisercraft travel ticket.

Here's the fabulous prize on offer.

I would like to enter this into the embossing challenge at Simon Says.
