Handmade Vintage Card: Daring Adventure

Do you love the "shabby chic" style of vintage cards?  I do, and want to share my newest with you! 

Daring Adventure from Stampin' Up!

Stampin' Up! has some wonderful products for this style of card. The Well Worn Designer Series Paper is a great product for a shabby chic project.  I used three different patterns from the set in this card, and distressed the heck out of all but the background.

The sentiment is from the Daring Adventure set.  I used other stamps in the set to create another vintage background, with layers of stamped images, lots of sponging, distressing, and shimmer paint.  A mat of Cherry Cobbler card stock set off the focal piece nicely.

Embellishments include a Mini Clothespin (from this year's Idea Book and Catalog), a bow of Victoria Crochet Trim, and a Vintage Brad

    This is the kind of card that looks like it took FORever to make. Love the paper combination you used and of course the technique. Also, thanks for doing all the videos. They are a super resource.

    Thanks for your comment, Julie. The card didnt really take forever–there are a lot of steps, but none of them is difficult. Im so glad you like all the videos. I love sharing that way!
