My friend and sideline, Kim, inspired me to use some vintage images I had gotten from Crafty Secrets. You can see her card here. I have been hoarding these things forever! There is only a tiny bit of stamping, a lot of distressing, some Cuttlebugging, some chalking, I guess that's enough! You can see the Crafty Secrets products here.
The card base is Sahara Sand, the other panels are Night of Navy and Kraft. I swiped the CB panel with Creamy Caramel ink before I embossed it. Then I went over some of the words with a blender pen & chalk. Then I daubered the edges with Close to Cocoa for an "old" look. I stamped the flag image with Linen in Creamy Caramel, and stamped "USA" on the twill with a clear stamp from ACM and NofN Craft ink. I also swiped the Creamy Caramel pad over the twill to make it look old. Finally, I distressed the edges of the Ruby Red & Night of Navy pieces with my SU distresser and added some vintage brads. Although the blue chalk looks quite bright in the photo, it is a little darker! I thoroughly enjoyed making this card! Hope you like it too!
God Bless America!!!
