Anyhow...enough ranting. Let's look at the card I have for you! I know that last night I said I would post my SIL's birthday card...well I did make her a REALLY cute cupcake card...but forgot to take a picture of it before I gave it to her tonight! Instead I have another card I designed for an organized swap I am participating in at convention. It is simply a vintage card swap and since I just designed it today, I used the sketch from Mojo Monday and the colour scheme from Just Add Ink as the starting point. First of all, here is the sketch:
|Vintage Swap card for Mojo198 and JAI75 using Artistic Etchings, Notably Ornate and French Foliage stamp sets.|
I love doing Vintage...it just is so easy to layer lots of images and embellishments to get something unique. I also love playing with my Distressing Kit...so much fun crumpling, sanding and sponging! I hope my fellow swappers will be happy with this card. I had to start from scratch, since I won't get my new catty goodies in time! As it is, I'm going to have to beg, borrow or steal some cherry cobbler seam binding ribbon...I ran out with seven cards to go! Anybody out there able to spare some till after convention???
The good news (and I sure NEED some after today!) is that I only have one more set of swaps to make! Hopefully I will be able to get them done tomorrow so that I can whip up some general swap cards on Sunday! Off now to design my last one...I'll show you what I come up with!
