Naki and Nina's Double Dare Challenge 15

Saturday, December 1, 2012

Welcome to new Naki and Nina's Double Dare Challenge! Can you believe it is December already!? We had our first real snow yesterday here in upstate NY...

After a week off, we have a very interesting combo for you:-)
I needed a Birthday card for my husband's little cousin who is turning 18!

Make a vintage card

No stamp

When I saw the combination, I immediately thought about using the Fan Fair DSP because of their distressed, vintage prints. But I ended up using only the numbers 1 and 8 from the pack, which was so perfect for this card!

Turned out, the World Spectacular DSP was a better fit for this card since I could not use any stamps. I snipped out the hot air balloons, the tickets, the banners... everything I needed was all on this pack of Designer Series Papers... You gotta love them:-)
Now, I LOVE vintage cards but my style is more of CAS, and am not sure how to make vintage cards... I did learn the distressing a card stock technique from one of my fellow pretty pals Ann Schach's blog though, she is so talented...:-) Her vintage cards take my breaths away...

Of course, no vintage card is done without daubing some ink on card stocks to give an aged look, right;-) 

My Recipe for This Card

Stamp set: None!
Paper: Early Espresso, Very Vanilla, Fan Fair and World Spectacular DSP
Ink: Early Espresso
Accessory: Linen Thread
Tool: Apothecary Accents and Itty Bitty Banners Framelits Dies, Argyle Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Stampin' Dimensionals

Thank you so much for stopping by!
 Hope you enjoyed it!
Now let us all go to my friend Nina's blog and get inspired by her always beautiful cards:-)
