Happy Saturday everyone! Ever since Vintage Van was released, I have wanted to use the van to create a Valentine's Day card. I had a blast creating it!
The background on this card started out as a test piece for another card I made for the January release. I messed up the embossing and decided to test out background colors on it. Once I was done testing out the colors I was going to toss it, but decided to hang onto it for a bit and I'm glad I did.
I embossed the hearts from Grunge Elements 2
with clear embossing powder on white cardstock and cut with a stitched
rectangle die. I ink blended with cracked pistachio, weathered wood and
chipped sapphire distress oxide inks. At first, I wasn't sure I liked
this combo but it grew on me.
I stamped the Van and love sentiment from Vintage Van with VersaFine Clair Nocturne ink on white. I colored with the above distress oxide inks along with mustard seed and black soot. I stamped the sentiments from Love Wordfetti on white and trimmed down to size. It's hard to see in the photo but I popped the sentiments and van up with foam tape.
Love Wordfetti and Grunge Elements 2 are part of the awesome Overstock Sale
going on for the entire month of February. Check it out!
I hope you enjoyed today's card and thanks for stopping by!Karen
