Red vintage card

I sat up late last night to finish this card in time for a challenge, I had so many challenges I wanted to make this time – I found a lot that go well together, like Vintage with lace, pearls and lace, bingo including lace and pearls, book (making me think of the old books I found second hand)… However, I did have some trouble finding the right composition until I remembered the ”red” theme at Creativica, and there it was – the main thread (in Swedish it’s even called ”the red thread”! :)) to hold it together!


The stamp ”Grattiskramar” (celebration hugs) is stamped in an old book and punched. Behind it I’ve hidden two stamped tickets.


The image is punched with the same punch and matted on the same red cardstock as the whole card.


Papers: Tim Holtz- Distress Core’dinations cardstock Fired brick, Maja design – Lantliv, BoBunny – Et cetera, old book
Stamps: Inkido – Grattiskramar, unknown – ticket
Colour and effects: Versafine – Onyx black + embossing powder, Distress Ink – Vintage photo
Decorations: Prima marketing – flower, Youdo – half pearls Sepia, vintage lace, ribbon
Tool: Blade rubber – scalloped circle punch
