Vintage Vogue Valentine

This is one of the fabulous cards from Sherri Robinson's swap event at Leadership. The card was created by Sharon Trauth. Thank you , Sharon! I finally finished it. This was the very last card of 21 that we made at the event. We got a total of 42 cards - it was quite a marathon of card making within 4 hours but a very satisfying time. Sharon's card was in a portrait format, I decide to make mine landscape (influenced by a fellow demonstrator: Diane Tritz who sat next to me at the event). Never the less, I think this card is so beautiful! It incorporates the new stamps and accys available in the Occasions Mini!!!

Here's the inside: The Very Vanilla is sponged with Real Red.

And here is a close-up of the belly band: Isn't it feminine and sweet? Yes, after stamping the images on Real Red, hand cutting is necessary to create the beautiful edge.

To make this card (4-1/4" x 5-1/2" finished size), you will need:
(1) 4-1/4" x 11" Real Red CS, score @2-3/4, turn paper score @2-3/4:
(1) 4" x 5-1/4" Pretty in Pink CS
(1) 3-3/4" x 5" Very Vanilla CS
(1) 2" x 3-1/2" Pretty in Pink CS
(1) 4" x 3-1/2" Very Vanilla CS
(1) cut 5/8" wide Pretty in Pink Satin Ribbon 12" long

Here's how I secured the satin ribbon for a clean look (hidden by the front stamped image)
Supplies used for this card:
  • Stamps: Vintage Vogue, Well Scripted, Very Vintage Roller, Holiday Best (Level 1 Hostess)
  • CS: Real Red, Very Vanilla, Pretty in Pink, scrap of Sending Love DSP
  • Ink: Real Red
