Friends Forever

From The Funkie Junkie

This charming vintage images tugs at my heartstrings. There is something so purely innocent these three little ones playing at having a tea party that makes me want to sit and play along with them, drinking in their simple joy.

This week, the challenge at the Creative Card Crew is to make a card for a child or baby. I seem to be fresh out of those type of stamps so I went to my collection of vintage images. This one if from Shabby Chic Papirskatter. Here is my design team submission for this week's challenge. I hope you will stop by and check out the rest of the DT submissions and maybe play along. Be sure to chck out their blogs and see their other fantastic creations.

For this card, the paper is Melissa Frances. The front frame was cut with the Mega Rectangle Nestabilities and stamped with an Artistic Outpost filagree stamp (yes, its the same one that I used for my last card. I just discovered this stamp in my stash. I had never used it and now I LOVE it - LOL!!). I inked it up with Versamark and Pretty in Pink and clear embossed it to add texture. I stamped it in the opposite corners of two sizes of the frame, which I then layered with craft foam between. The lable was also cut with a Spellbinders tag die and the bottom punched with a MS border punch.



On the inside, I used two heart dies to cut the element and then glued it down together. I like the way the one heart cut inside the other one looks. The sentiment is by Rubbernecker and the floruishes are by InqueBoutique. The lower panel was dry embossed with my Cuttlebug and the With Love set of embossing borders.







So that's my design team entry for this week. Hope to see an entry from you over at the Creative Card Crew blog.



Update: This card was featured on Card of the Week.
