Vintage Medallion card


I just love the vintage look of this card! I stamped the En Francais background stamp in Crumb Cake ink on Very Vanilla cardstock. Then, I stamped the Medallion background stamp in Cherry Cobbler ink over top of it. I sponged the edges with Crumb Cake ink to give it an aged look. I layered this piece onto a piece of Basic Black cardstock. I used the new 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon in Basic Black, but I sponged the edges of the ribbon with Crumb Cake ink to age it. The words "Here for you" are from the Friends 24-7 stamp set. I stamped them in Basic Black ink, then punched it out with the 1" circle punch. I also sponged Crumb Cake ink around this circle, then layered it on a 1 1/4" Basic Black circle. I wrapped the ribbon around the center, then used Stampin' Dimensionals to adhere the circle. All of this was layered onto a Cherry Cobbler card. The front of the card was dry embossed with the Vintage Wallpaper Textured Impressions folder. I hope you like this! I am just loving these vintage-looking cards! Crumb Cake is a MUST for your stamping supplies -- very versatile, and great for creating an aged look.
