Today I am sharing with you an easy, vintage feeling card that I created by doing a bit of distressing and inking of my papers.
Begin your card by first cutting card stock and pattern paper to fit the front of your card base. Distress the edges of all the pieces with distress tool, ink edges with Colorbox Nutmeg Blend ink. Adhere all pieces to top of card base using Xyron Mega Tape Runner.
Run a piece of ribbon through the Xyron 1.5″ Sticker Maker; place on front of card.
Die cut “Peace” from card stock; run through Xyron 1.5″ Sticker Maker and add to front of card.
Cut pattern paper and card stock to create a strip for the top of card front. Repeat the distressing and inking method on all pieces. Adhere together with Xyron Mega Tape Runner.
Die cut doily and punch scallop circle out of card stock. Run both pieces through Xyron 3″ Disposable Sticker Maker.
Adhere the doily to the scallop circle. Add to front of card front.
Stamp image to white card stock. Distress and ink edges; mat of distress and ink mats. Adhere together the Xyron Mega Tape Runner. Add to front of card with pop dots. Add bow to card.
Stamp second image on white card stock; color with markers. Fussy cut image and add to front of card with pop dots. Add enamel dots to card.
