Cycle This Way!

Hello Everyone

After my quick and clean card earlier in the week, I thought it was time for something a little more vintage today.

I have layered up a mixture of Designer Series Paper and stamped impages to create this card. I also sponged all the layers with Crumb Cake ink.

My tip for today is how to create the tag. First I used the Apothecary Accents framelit die to cut the shape in Marina Mist cardstock. It has two rounded ends so I snipped off one. (You can see this on my previous video - click *VIDEOS on the left to see it).

I then decided I needed a layer. I cut a piece of Natuals Ivory cardstock in a rectangle about a quarter of an inch bigger than the framelit tag. I then punched a 1 1/4" circle in Naturals Ivory and stuck it to the back. Much neater than trying to hand cut it! Do you like the look?

You can see another Sale-A-Bration sneak peek here. The beautiful Penny Farthing image is from a stamp set called Feeling Sentimental and I have just LOVED using this stamp set. I bet it will be the first choice freebie for many people this year.

Do you like today's project?
