Framed Shop

Good morning, Friends! Man, it is getting so hard to get up this early in the mornings! I can't wait for the weekend when I will be able to sleep in a little! Nick has an orthodontist appointment and then soccer practice tonight. As for me, I need to finish up some design work for next week and then try to work ahead on some design work. I hope I can get a lot accomplished today! My legs are itching to get out for a run but I am still sore from the last one. I may have to postpone that for tomorrow. 

Today's card is another that was created for a display. I think that you can guess that my display was about the Notable Notions set and the Shop Around wheel. Love the vintage look of these images! I am not very good at vintage and so I was thankful for the challenge! I think this one was my favorite! Here are the card details:

  • Card base is Baked Brown Sugar
  • On card base, use Baked Brown Sugar marker and a ruler to draw a "frame"
  • Layer of Baked Brown Sugar that was sponged with Baked Brown Sugar ink then popped up onto card
  • A second layer of Baked Brown Sugar that was stamped with the Shop Around jumbo wheel in Baked Brown Sugar and then adhere to card
  • Stamp tag image onto Very Vanilla in Basic Grey, cut out and also cut out center part of tag
  • Use glue dots to adhere a folded piece of 7/16" Trim behind tag and then pop tag up onto card so that it frames one of the adds (I chose to frame the Queen ad)
  • Stamp sentiment from Bring on the Cake in Baked Brown Sugar onto a strip of Very Vanilla and flag one end
  • Tuck the other end of the sentiment behind the tag and adhere to card
  • The button was made with the Simply Pressed Clay and the Buttons and Blossoms mold then colored with a Calypso Coral marker
  • Tie a piece of linen thread through the button and adhere to card
  • Finish it off with a large pearl at the tag top
Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
