A vintage-style card using the SplodgeAway Mat for ink blending.
What you need:
Distress Ink – Dusty Concord
Stamps - Crafty Individuals tag; round birthday sentiment
Dies / punches - scallop border punch; decorative corner; plain and scallop circle
Ribbon, lace and flowers
What you do:
Cut a square of patterned paper and use your SplodgeAway Mat to blend Distress Ink around the edges. Mat it onto a co-ordinating piece of cardstock, then onto a square card blank.
Stamp your tag in brown ink and colour the image with pencils, cut it out and mat it onto 2 pieces of cardstock, lightly edging all the pieces with Distress Ink.
Use a scallop border punch on both sides of a wide strip of cardstock then add some lace and ribbon.
Stamp a round sentiment onto a scrap of card, distress with ink, punch out and mat onto a scalloped circle. Fix to the card just under the bow.
Embellish your card with a decorative diecut corner and some paper roses.
