Vintage Leaves

Vintage Leaves, Tin of Cards

Here is another birthday card using the stamp set called Vintage Leaves.  This set has a matching set of Framelits (also called Vintage Leaves) but I didn’t use them this time.  Instead, I used the stamps to make a background for this card.  By the way, if you buy both in a bundle, you can save 15%!

The greeting in the middle is actually recessed into the cardstock.  I know it is hard to tell by the picture.  I stamped the leaves onto Very Vanilla cardstock and then temporarily adhered it to the Garden Green cardstock.  Then I ran the smaller framelit from the Tags and Labels Framelits set onto both pieces of cardstock at the same time.  I had to run it through a few times to have it cut both pieces.  Then I took the two pieces of cardstock apart and ran the Very Vanilla piece through using a larger framelit.  It sounds more complicated than it is but doing it this way makes the windows line up perfectly.

Then I permanently adhered the two pieces of cardstock together on top of the Very Vanilla card background and lastly, stamped the greeting in the middle using the Tin Of Cards stamp set.  This is a Photopolymer stamp set so it was easy to line up.

I hope these directions don’t sound complicated because the card was really easy to make!
