I'm enjoying putting my Fresh Vintage stamp set through its paces. Today I made a sympathy card with it using the fabulous sketch at Young Crafters Unite.
The card contrasts sharply with yesterday's bright creation - I just wanted to show you how well the set works for a sombre occasion. Come and have a look:
I've used the large plant image to create the background and by stamping off have introduced shades of grey as well as black which gives it a bit of depth. The edges of the panel were sponged with Early Espresso ink.
I loved the sentiment banner in the sketch and have simply recreated it with a line scored either side to add interest. The sentiment is from Petite Pairs, a set which contains double sentiments to use inside as well as outside a card, and I inked only part of this one using a Basic Black marker. To accentuate the sentiment I stamped the large single flower in the set, cut it out and added one of the wonderful Vintage Brads. I cut my flower out by hand but I understand that the snowflake builder punch fits beautifully and will make shorter work of the task!
Supplies needed for this card:
Stamps: Fresh Vintage, Petite Pairs
Ink: Basic Black, Early Espresso
Card stock: Very Vanilla, Naturals Ivory
Other: Vintage Brads, scoring blade, paper snips, stamp-a-majig
