Vintage Collage features Sanded Chevron Folder

I had so much fun making this Vintage Collage Using the Chevron Folder and Postage Due stamp set.
The sanding technique adds to the Vintage Feel!

No guess work on the layout because
I used the MOJO MONDAY Sketch #280
Here's How to Create the Vintage Flair.....

1.  Create a Vanilla card base, sponge edges with Crumb Cake ink.
2.  Using the VERY VINTAGE Jumbo wheel and Tangerine tango ink, roll vintage
     design on the bottom of the card.
3.  Cut a Sahara Suede panel 3" x 4 1/2".
4.  Cut a Crumb Cake panel 2 3/4 x 4 1/4".
5.  Using a Tangerine Tango printed DSP from the Summer Smooches    
     collection, cut a piece 2 1/2" x 4".
6.  Run the DSP thru the Chevron embossing folder (look at sample for the 
     correct zig zag direction) 
7.  After dry embossing your paper, gently sand the raised part with 
     a sanding block.
8.  Glue # 7 to #4
9.  Attach a strip of Victoria Crochet Trim at an angle before 
     applying to #3
10. Cut a strip of Crumb Cake, Punch with Scallop Trim Border and attach
     to the underside of #3
11. Cut a Soft Suede panel 1 1/2" x 2 1/2".
12. Stamp POSTAGE DUE image on vanilla card stock with Soft Suede ink.
13. Punch image using the Postage Punch, sponge with Crumb Cake ink.
14. Punch a 1 3/8" circle Tangerine Tango circle and mount under
     stamp image.
15. Stamp "friends" from the Tiny Tags stamp set  directly on #11 or
     on a small piece of Soft Suede, trim and attach to the larger panel.
16. Die 2 Flower Trim Roses with Tangerine Tango Ink. Cut away some of
     the rose trim on one of them to make it smaller in size.
     TIP: I like to spritz my flower with water first, then either smash my flower
            face down on my ink pad, sponge with a dauber or ink with a marker.
            The water will allow the ink to BLEED thru the rose petals for a 
            softer more natural feel.
17. Attach an Antique Brad with the flower cluster.
18. At this point I found that my card needed just a little more balance of the
     Tangerine color so I cut 1/8" x 1 1/2" strips to add the final touch.

  1. wow, this is awesome, luv how you have used the SU sets, very sweet! Hope you have a fabulous weekend!

    enjoy *~*

  2. I saw a card of yours on Splitcoaststampers using the Postage Due stamp. Here is the link: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/photo/2309690?&si=SUO I am wondering how you made that beautiful bow? I can't find it on your blog. I appreciate your beautiful cards!

    1. Hi Adriane,
      It was super easy...just take about a 3" piece of the SU Scalloped Tulle (retired), fan fold it with the scallops on the outside. I then took a piece of thread and wound it around the center to hold the folds in place. Tie a piece of SU Suede Ribbon around the middle and attach to the card with the knot on the underside . I hope this helps!

    2. Oops, two N's in your name....aghhhh
