Old Fashioned Love
Hello BPM Fans! Mercy here with a blast from the past of sorts. As a fan of all things vintage, this project really was something that allowed me to use Victorian inspiration (and my stash!) to create a card for Mother's Day.
4 Small Red Roses
Black Pigment Ink
Black Embossing Powder
Page Corner Rounder punch
Alcohol Ink Pens in green, purple, orange, & red
Tim Holtz Alterations Sizzix 3D Impresslits -Scallop
Yellow Dylusions Spray Ink
Red Glossy card stock
Velum with decorative star bursts
Purple A6 Greeting Card blank
White Cardstock postcard (4.5" X 6.5")
1. Stamp the corner curvy flower stamp, centered on the top of the card (right up against the edge) with pigment ink, corner pointing up. Rotate the card 180 degrees, add a corresponding corner stamp facing the first stamped one like a mirror, placing that one centered up against the edge of the card.
3. Pour black embossing powder across the card and heat emboss.
4. Spray a few spritzes of the Dylusions Yellow ink across the card. Leave some of the white cardstock showing.
5. On either scrap paper or on other white cardstock, stamp and emboss in black embossing powers a few more "Love" stamps. Color those in red and one in purple. Fussy cut each letter out from the scrap ones.
6. Color the rest of the flowers/vines. Glue roses to be just above and below the "Love" stamp in a square (in my case, I ended up spray dying white roses I had to red). Using foam tape, layer the letters over the base "Love" to add more dimension.
7. Using the Tim Holtz 3d Impresslits border, emboss four strips of the glossy red card stock. Cut those down to wrap around the postcard base. Glue them to create a border around the stamped image.
8. Mount a 5X7 cut of the velum to the card base. Once that is mounted, use foam tape to glue down to the velum card, centered. Use a page rounder to trim the edges.
9. Add a note or greeting to the inside of the card.
This project is definitely themed to fit for a variety of holidays and reasons to create. Changing out the messaging on the inside of the card is key towards versatility.
