Yes I know, I know… I’ve shown off the Vintage Vogue stamp set before as I said earlier this week, I had a hostess request a “Make and Take” with this set to get some ideas as to what she’ll do with hers – no worries I said. And as I knew this lovely lady also had some of the Cottage Wall DSP it really wasn’t difficult to design something for her! Also, for a change of direction, I chose to make this card as a 6″x6″. This is what we made…
Plus I won’t deny I had recently viewed a card by the creative Susan Joyce which really tweaked my interest so was able to combine the two… BONUS! Of course it wasn’t until I was collating the kits that I realised that by using the DSP as a background on the 6″x6″ I would only be able to do eight cards MAXIMUM with this particular DSP… DOH! So this is what I did as Plan B… (which was lucky as we had two very late attendees to the workshop that needed to do these cards… phew!)
Anywho, on the Rich Razzleberry card base, I stamped with Rich Razzleberry Classic Ink the leaf stamp from the Vintage Vogue set around the outer edges on the front of the card to create some interest as a background as opposed to a plain background. On the bottom left-hand corner I used the Double Rectangle Punch for threading the ribbon through. It makes ALL the difference, I can’t recommend it enough!
However, I couldn’t stop there could I? As I cut down the Kraft (soon to be renamed Crumb Cake) card-stock I had some substantial off-cuts, the same with the Cottage Wall DSP so wanted to give an example as to how everything has as a use, be it intentionally or not. I think you’d have to agree with me that unless you knew better, you wouldn’t guess the above card was basically made with left-overs!
