It won't be too much longer and I will find myself back in the United States for summer break and Stampin' Up! convention. This year I invited all my downline to join me at our home in Utah for a couple of days before convention for my STARZ retreat. It will so great to see everyone again.
As part of my retreat we each create a wow project and then bring cards to exchange. This card is my exchange card, it has that vintage style to it. I really like how it turned out and hope you enjoy it as well.
I used Stampin' Up! new in color Summer Starfruit for the base and 4 x 5 1/4" Designer paper from Stampin' Up! new paper pack Comfort Cafe. Then I added 1/2 of the Bigz Clear Oval Accent die cut from Cajun Craze cardstock. I stamped a flourish in Cajun Craze on the top part of the die. I also stamped the words on the DSP paper.
I stamped image from the Established Elegance stamp set and punched and added them to the card. The Typewriter stamped in Black stazon; framed in Soft Suede. Circle image was stamped with Early Espresso punched with circle punch. Crown was stamped with Cajun Craze punched with square punch and framed with Summer Starfruit cardstock punches with square punch. The key was stamped with Black Stazon and cut out and natural twine was tied in a bow. The accents were popped off the page with dimensionals.
How to make the ribbon flower: The ribbon flower is about 7 inches of seam binding ribbon, you pull a string from one edge gathering the ribbon as you pull, then I rolled and wrapped the ribbon back and forth around itself and stuck the bottom edge to a dimensional. I used the same dimensional to stick the ribbon flower to the card.
