Vintage Labels with a Twist
I am sure you can all empathise with me when i say that this is a card that took me 2 hours to make. It may not look like it BUT i had this great idea in my head to use the FREE Sale-A-Bration Vintage Labels set with punches to create a different looking stamped image depending on the punch i used. Well that part actually worked and the Scallop Circle Vintage Label stamp looks fabulous and entirely different when punched out with the Scallop Circle, the 1 3/4" Circle, the 1 3/8" Circle and the 1 1/4" Circle punch. What didnt work was the layout for the card i had in my head so after a while i thought of the flower pot with some layered flowers and this is what it turned out like. I like that it is a different twist on the stamp set but it is entirely different to what i had in mind.
The flower pot is made using the Kaleidescope Designer Series Paper and the Greeting is from the Chit Chat Rub On s both from the Summer Mini Catalogue. The stems are made from the Baroque Motifs stamp set and the flowers are layers of the Vintage Labels decorated with some Designer Series Paper and a Clear Round Button.
