This was a fun card to make. I really didn't know where I was going when I started this card, normally I have it all planned out in my head before I start. I might have to change around an element or two to make my plan work. This card was kinda fun to play around with and work it out as I went along!
I used a sketch from the http://retrosketches.blogspot.com/2013/02/retrosketches-49.html
Here is the sketch:
What a great sketch!!! I wanted to use bottle caps again. As soon as I saw this sketch, bottle caps popped in my mind!!!! I am telling you, smooshing them in the Big Shot.....BIG FUN!!!!! LOL!!! (maybe I need to get out more!)
I had the lace wheel stamp from Stampin' Up since the new catalog came out, but I had never used it. I think I need to set it on my desk to add a little detail to the background. It was perfect for this card. It can add a layer without bulk! I used Crumb Cake ink so it matched the card base of Crumb Cake. I used Elegant Eggplant, Very Vanilla and, Lucky Limeade cardstock.
I love the new stamp set Collage Curios from the new Spring mini catalog. I love filling those bottle caps!! But I have had fun seeing what other sets could fit in those bottle caps! I used the 1" punch to punch out the circles so anything that fits in the 1" punch will work in those bottle caps!
I used another stamp set in this card. It is on the Elegant Eggplant cardstock, it is a stamp from the You're Amazing stamp set. I loved the detail around the edge but didn't need the word inside the image. No problem, I covered it up with the banner and the bottle caps. I used versamark ink to stamp it. I love layering stamps! Great way to use our stamps in your projects in ways that you don't always think about!!! I need to do this in my scrapbooking too!
I had a lot of fun adding all the elements to this card! Hope you enjoyed!
