STAMPlorations Bi-Weekly Challenge


Shery at STAMPlorations Challenge blog has a new Bi-Weekly Challenge running from October 4th to October 23rd.

With any theme as a basis for the challenge I created a vintage type two toned Memory Travel Card

Here is my card I created for this challenge.  Click picture to view larger and more details, especially the embossing on the brown textured paper background card base.

Front and Inside

I enjoyed creating this card...not sure why the brown, but I was thinking of two toned at the time.  Embossing the front with the leaves folder for the cuttlebug, to give texture and go with the theme of flowers and leaves in the vintage type look. I then sponge with rustic hinge ink on top of the leaves to make them pop a image for the details.

I also cut a length of textured paper and stamped with smaller flowers and sponge edges with vintage sepia for the top and bottom border.

I then used the die cuts of square and scalloped circle to give definition and frame to the sentiment and flowers which I then edge sponged with vintage sepia.  The sentiment reminded me of the memories I hold whilst traveling on the road.  The flowers and leaves reminded me of the trees and pretty flowers planted along the roads and peoples homes I saw along the way.

I embellished the flowers with pearl stick on's. I then stuck textured paper on the inside of the card to allow for writing.

Inks Used :
Versafine - Vintage Sepia

  1. Monika, I love the "metallic/bronze" look of this card! The embossing is gorgeous and so is the distressing. Great job creating this card based on the sketch!
