Very Vintage


A quick card for you today; hopefully later I can do the CAS challenge at SCS....I have an idea in my head!

I am working on techniques for my club and thought I would use my new Very Vintage jumbo wheel with the emboss resist technique. I am still waiting for my Vintage Vogue set to arrive...the first one I got was in French! Oops! Very pretty, but not what I wanted! So what do you think?


The center panel is stamped in Versamark and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. I took a sponge dauber and added Rich Razzleberry ink to the unembossed areas. I also used the new heart border punch on the this monochromatic card. Do you think it looks silly with the hearts upside down on the top panel? Let me know!! Cardstock is Rich Razzleberry and Confetti White; ink is Versamark and Rich Razzleberry.

Oh and here are a couple more Christmas cards.....

A cutie-patootie from Julia:


A lovely creation from Chris (mudmaven):


An awesome, embellishment-filled, lotsa fun card from my CTD teammate, Broni:


And a sweet old-fashioned card from my friend Toni:


And last, but not least......a cute little Merry Chris-moose from my creative friend MaryAnne:


and you can see she added a little bag of goodies with this little fella!

Thanks for being patient while I showcased all my RAKs. I get so much positive feedback from my blog friends and I love to show off their creativity! Thanks for visiting today!
