Creative Card Crew: Vintage

Good Tuesday morning; it's time for another fun challenge from the Creative Card Crew!  Our theme for this fortnight is vintage and our sponsor is Simon Says Stamp!

I have to say that while I love vintage, it is very hard for me to pull off, so this was really a struggle....  I had several different ideas before I came across this DP from 7 Gypsies...I knew it would be perfect and went to work!  There is no stamping involved with this card; mainly die cutting, scoring, and sponging.  I used my Scor-Pal to score a few lines on my Kraft cardbase, then gently swiped an ink pad along the scoring before adding a bit of sponging.  I like the aged look!  I also added a bit of ink to the DP to "dirty it up" a bit.  I added my felt die cuts, a button, a pearl, and a needle with floss to finish the card.

Paper: PTI Kraft and True Black, 7 Gypsies DP
Ink: Palette Burnt Umber
Embellies: PTI Button, K&Company Pearl
Extras: Scor-Pal, Spellbinders Nestabilities, PTI Dress Form Die, MFT Die-namics Rolled Flower Die, PTI Pure Poppy Felt, Black/Green Felt (my stash), DMC Floss

I would love to see your take on vintage...maybe you can give me a few ideas!

Thanks for stopping by!

Great card Angela! I am also very bad at vintage, I wouldn't know where to begin and what to use...lol. I love the scored lines on your card and the little bit of ink on them is really fabulous!
