Vintage 4th by Jearise

Well tomorrow we celebrate America's Independence Day and so to show my love for America and for vintage cards, I made this vintage 4th of July card.

This card was easy to make and I like the way the look turned out in the end. I used Graphic 45 (Le Cirque Collection) paper for the striped background. I then used a blue designed 6 x 6 sheet from Echo Park's For the Record 2 pad (Email Kim if interested) for the middle and finally I used used Bazzill paper (Email Kim if interested) to stamp my generic design on.

To get my vintage look, I used Tim Holtz Ranger Distress Ink in frayed burlap and inked the edges and ran the pad across the surface of my bottom and middle. I then used my finger to smudge the ink and to lesson it's color. For the stamped middle, I used Tim Holtz Ranger Distress markers (Email Kim if interested) to color a acrylic stamp. Once the image was stamped, I sprayed it with Perfect Pearls Mist in heirloom gold. Finally, I layered my card using my ATG tape and gun and added the peals for something a little extra.

Happy 4th of July everyone!
