Re-visiting Collage

June 17th, 2008

I haven’t made a collagey/vintagey/shabby card in forever!  I had some Soft Sky and River Rock cardstock out on my stamp table and felt inspired to try something really soft and kind of old fashioned looking.



It didn’t turn out nearly as shabby or detailed as I originally planned, but I like the soft collage look.  I used several SU sets including Fresh Cuts, Always, Frames with a Flourish, and Boho Backgrounds.  I’m not sure if you can really see it, but there is a Friends sentiment stamped on the River Rock scallop circle (Marvy punch) – it’s from Inque Boutique and I purchased it on our trip to Santa Barbara.  Cardstock is River Rock, Soft Sky amd Very Vanilla with just Soft Sky and River Rock ink and ribbon.  Pearls are Kaiser Crafts from eclectic Paperie.  I like this card, but I just might have to make it again and give it the More is More treatment.  *wink*

Curt has been asked to drive the Model T as the getaway car for a wedding at church on Saturday.  I bought yards and yards of white tulle and ribbon to decorate the car to surprise the couple.  I plan to work on that tomorrow after work.  Then I need to make a Just Married sign.  I’ve decided to forego the tin cans.  Hopefully I’ll have some pictures to share next week.


Thanks for stopping by.

    This is absolutely wonderful, Jami! Just beautiful. You made some very soft and pretty, feminine background paper for your card. I like your idea for the wedding car, too. Much nicer than tin cans!
