Creating A Card With Older Supplies From My Stash

By | 06/30/2020

I have a craft room with lots of stuff that I’ve had for a long time.  I have a lot of embossing folders that I used all the time.  I haven’t used an embossing folder in YEARS.

I’m not kidding!

I decided to pull one out today and create a card in a distressed style.

Distressed style is not my thing, but I love using mixed media and I have some ephemera tidbits that I wanted to try out on a card.

The sentiment is a new one from Catherine Pooler’s Grace in Bloom set.  The embossing folder is a very old Sizzix.  The embellishments are leftovers from old kits and things.

I embossed on white cardstock and then used my blender brush and the Tea Stain distress oxide ink.  I heat embossed the sentiment in gold and added a gold wire element that I curled around a paint brush.  I also added some fabulous leaves that are almost like thread leaves.  I put some gold thread under the leaves and added a compass element on top.  I added it all to a chocolate card base and added some black splatter.

I used this week’s Paper Craft Crew sketch challenge to create this card.  I thought it was a great layout!

I flipped the sketch 90 degrees for a taller card.

This is a quick post today!  I’ve attended a couponing virtual class that was free, a Vicki Boutin texture paste class, and a watercoloring virtual workshop with Altenew. I’m exhausted!!

I had a great day!  If you haven’t participated in a virtual live event or a virtual crafty workshop, make time to do that.  It’s such a treat to yourself!

Thank you for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day!
