With only 5 days left 'till Sale-A-Bration, sadly, comes to an end, I wanted to use my favorite sheet of DSP from the Sycamore Street Designer Series Paper Pack. It's not my favorite because it was FREE although that helps 😉 – It's my favorite because it coordinates beautifully with my FAVORITE Textured Impressions Folder: Vintage Wallpaper! Every time I create a card, I look through my collection of Impressions Folders and I try NOT to use it because I know I use it all the time! BUT…it truly goes with just about everything! The "other" DSP behind it comes from Patio Party DSP. Don't forget that your colors coordinate! Look through your paper stash and mix and match!
So, for this card, I wanted a more masculine look so I didn't tie a bow in my ribbon. Instead, I used the Retired copper button. I only have a few left 🙁 so I try to save them for "special" cards! LOL (I know YOU know what I mean!) The corners were created using a technique I call Aged Copper. You use Brushed Gold card stock, run it through the Big Shot using a Textured Impressions Folder of your choice (you know what MY choice was!) and then sand the top of it. Spray it with a solution of 70% Alcohol and Chocolate Chip Reinker in one of our Spritz Bottles and Voila! Aged Copper! The circle behind the greeting was created the same way.
The brads were snipped so that I could just drop them on using Glue Dots instead of having to hole punch and insert the brads – a lazy way to get the same look! Everything was sponged with Midnight Muse Ink and a Stampin' Sponge. Stampin' Dimensionals were used to pop everything up for extra texture. Note – the left edge of the doily need a double Stampin' Dimensional so that it would stay even with the rest of the doily. Just pile one on top of the other until it's even.
