Vintage Vogue and NEW goodies :)

This Vintage Vogue card is on its way down to Florida to wish one of my dear friends a very happy birthday! This card features all new goodies from the Occasions Mini :) FUN!!

* Started with a standard card base of Kraft cardstock and using a Sponge Dauber distressed the edges with Soft Suede ink

* I chose to purchase the NEW Vintage Vogue set with the NEW Clear Mount option and it made it SO easy to line up my Soft Suede border to the left of my new Satin Ribbon.
I was skeptical of the acrylic clear mounts at first, BUT they are fabulous!! Of course it is the absolute same great quality SU always produces!!! Silly me, I never should have questioned it!! Have no fear, if you remain skeptical, the great thing is you still have the option to purchase the sets in wood mount as well!! Next to the item #, you will see a 'C' for Clear Mount and a 'W' for Wood Mount. Back to the card...

* The NEW Very Vanilla Satin Ribbon is gorgeous. For some reason I think the satin ribbons kreate the prettiest bows! In the center of my bow I attached the NEW Choc Chip 1/4" Sending Love Epoxy Brads and adhered to the card with some glue dots.

* Using another image from the set, a floral vine, I inked it in VersaMark for a soft tone on tone look.

* The NEW Scallop Trim Corner and Scallop Trim Border(can only be received from the Sale-a-bration brochure for FREE with a $50+ order), kreated a delicate matte in Pretty in Pink behind my image. I had a very difficult time figuring out how to make the last 'leg' of my rectangle work. I found this tutorial from Linda Heller, which finally got 'er done!!!

* The 'F'riends' image was stamped in Soft Suede ink on a distressed Very Vanilla cardstock. Inked it up a second time and stamped it on a piece of Very Vanilla scrap and with my Paper Snips, cut out my 'F'

* With my VersaMarker, I outlined the cut out 'F' and heat embossed with Gold Embossing Powder. I layered it on top of my stamped image with dimensionals.

* The final touch was the NEW Beautiful Wings Embosslit die. I ran a piece of Pretty in Pink through the Big Shot with this new die and kreated the prettiest textured butterflies, only used the 3 littlest on this card. Distressed each butterflies wings with Soft Suede and gave them Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint bodies (YES, these shimmer paints are still available to order during this catalog period!). Using the back of a paint brushed dipped in the shimmer paint, I lightly 'dotted' in bodies.

* Each butterfly took flight and landed on a glue dot to keep them put! :)
