For my card this week I used an image I cut from a Graphic 45 sheet. I love this vintage image. I'm such a fan of vintage photos. Whenever I see a vintage photo at antique stores I feel a bit odd purchasing them. I mean, who are the people in the photos, and why aren't in someone's family photo album? With the images on the G45 sheet I don't feel so strange using them.
For my card I used a white card base and layered and aqua paper distressed with evergreen bough. I then used a scalloped scallop punch to create waves cut from Graphic 45's Tropical Travelog. I then tucked the image behind some of the "waves" and added some simple lace. The "RELAX" is a stamp from Verve and was stamped in blushing bride ink. I added a hint of distress ink on the edges of the word RELAX and popped it up with pop dots. If my sewing machine didn't weigh a ton I would have liked to stitch around the edges. Yea when the Bernina dealer made the pitch "yes it's made from all steel parts" I should have realized it then that it would be VERY heavy. Oh well you live and learn. I hope you get a chance to participate in our challenge this week. Head on over the the Papercraft Star blog to see the new look and what beauties our fabulous design team have created!
