Vintage Cameo with The Kraft Journal.

Hey there and Happy Monday!

At The Kraft Journal this week, we have an "Anything Goes - Vintage" challenge for you! I hope you will come and join us! I have a card that was inspired by an ad I saw several years ago for one of the paper crafting magazine. It was just a snippet of a picture of card that was in their magazine...since it was an ad to get subscribers there was no info. I am not sure who the cardmaker was since I didn't actually see it in the magazine, but I was inspired none the less since I had that same stamp.  I am always looking for inspiration on some of my bigger image stamps. Different ways to use them since they are such a focal point. The original card was a beauty.
I started with a card base of Brown Kraft Cardstock. I embossed the card base with a vintage embossing folder for texture and visual interest.  I stamped the cameo image onto Buff Ivory Cardstock in Kraft Ink. I trimmed the image down adding a row of cream lace to the bottom. Next I took a length of Vintage Winter White Seam Binding and wrapped it around the focal image at the bottom and tied off in a fussy bow adding a kraft brown rose bud to the center. I used foam dimensionals to pop it up in the center of the card base finishing off with a few kraft color pearls.
Please be sure to head over to the The Kraft Journal to check out the projects by the other talented ladies.  We hope to see your Anything Goes - Vintage creations in the gallery this week for your chance to be featured on our "Feature me Friday" post as well as be entered to win a $15.00 gift voucher from The Kraft Outlet store.
Hope you have a wonderful week!
