Days 180 and 181

I'm getting pretty good at doing these cards at night...Of course, keeping them simple helps a GREAT deal! Gotta remind myself, more is not necessarily better!

Anyway, here is Day 180 - Going Vintage for 365 Cards...
It kinda ended up being a "shabby" vintage as I distressed the edges of the graphic and crumpled up the paper lace to make it look a bit more like fabric lace...not sure I achieved that, but it was fun to do! Colors are Kraft, Always Artichoke, and Very Vanilla. That's generic brown satin ribbon, sentiment was printed on the computer, and Nesties were used to cut the ovals. I didn't have a vintage looking stamp, so broke out a book of scrapbook images that are all vintage in appearance (thanks mom for those!) and printed it on Very Vanilla. Tried to distress it a bit with ink...think I got a bit too heavy with that.


On to Day 181 - White SpaceI kept this one VERY simple...the hardest part was using the corner rounder to make the scallops...maybe I can ask my NEW SU! demonstrator to order me a fancy scallop edger punch! hehehe! The stamps are from the SU! "Love Matters" set. Used generic brown ribbon (again...well it was out!), blinged it up a bit with a rhinestone and used some generic heart brads. Papers are Pink Pirouette and Whisper White. Ink is Vintage Photo Distress Inks. TFL!!!
