Vintage love

Tried something different today. I have been in a horrid mood since mid-morning so I don't know what I've been doing with this card... I mis-positioned many things on this card. Anyhow, here it is:

Tried a better view in the next.

The sentiment is printed. The image is a free digital stamp from Sliekje. Something that is not visible in the previous images is this clock that has been masked in the background:

The folded Label 3 is an inspiration from something similar in Laura's card (nothing close though!) and the ruffled ribbon is inspired by Heather (not close either) [both 2S4Y].

And aaah... the only bit I truly loved is the distressed red background... Loosely based on the Acrylic distressing technique in SCS.

I am entering this card for:
> 2S4Y : Laura's sketch #49
> The ABC Challenge: R is for Red.



  1. Hi Smita
    Yes I really believe the Spellbinder's Labels 3 will work for an easel card. It's got a beautiful shape
    For the floor: The card is folded like a normal easel card. Then I cut out a another piece the same size as the floor to glue on top. My main easel part of the card was white and I wanted a gray floor, so the floor is 2 cardstocks thick and then the pink. Then I just glued a smaller sized piece in the pink.
    Hope that answers your question
    Take care Yogi

  7. So sorry you're in a nasty mood, Smita! Hope it's better now. I hate it when I get that way. Nothing seems to turn out right when I'm feeling irritable. Your card is adorable, though. It doesn't seem to have affected your creativity at all! xxD

  8. Adorable!!
