Established Elegance Typewriter Prints out Message

Classy and Simple Today with a VINTAGE FEEL
This simple and Easy card was made for
a couple of challenges this week!
Color Challenge at SCS of
Basic Black, Very Vanilla and Crumb Cake

also the theme challenge of SYMPATHY at
The Paper Players

The Typewriter was stamped in basic black on vanilla card stock using the
ESTABLISHED ELEGANCE stamp set. Let dry then sponge with crumb cake ink. 
Isn't it amazing how detailed the image comes out. Stampin'Up's newest
stamp pads give our images clear and full coverage.

I knew that I wanted to put a Sympathy sentiment in the typewriter so that it looked like it was freshly typed. Searching through my stamps set I found that PETITE PAIRS would fit the bill perfectly.

I stamped the sentiment in black, trimmed it down to as small as I could , sponged it with crumb cake and then I performed surgery, ha (no doctor here) but look out when she has a craft knife! Yep, Cut a little slot for the sentiment to tuck in, luckily no blood.

I'm not sure if you can tell but the Crumb Cake layer is actually the negative
piece left over after I had cut a layer out of it. It measures 3 5/8" x 4 1/4".
You could just cut a black layer but it starts adding to the thickness of your card. The Typewriter panel is popped up with dimensionals, so the crumb cake layer acts as a frame.

The Crumb Cake frame was Smooch Spritzed with Silver Foil spray. It really adds to the vintage feel of the typewriter.
