Stepping it up!!

When ever we attend our SU mum's fabulous training events, Julie always shows us a quick and easy card for workshops and then a stepped up version, well today's card is a really 'Stepped-Up' version of the black and whisper white card I featured yesterday, using the 'SALE-A-BRATION' 'Fresh Vintage' Stamp set.
Its larger in size too!!
Measuring in at 8x8"!!
I made this to give, to Deborah yesterday,
for her 21st Birthday!! ;-)
I gave the numbers, which were die-cut with the 'Big Shot'
and the 'Timeless Type' dies-
a sprinkling of the 'gold antique glass glitter'
I created some paper flowers, using the very vintage looking 
'First Edition Newsprint- Designer Series Papers'
I added a double bow using my last piece of crochet trim and
the lovely 'Crumb Cake- Seam Binding',
with an 'Antique brad' for embellishment.
It doesn't show up to well, but I gave the flowers a squirt,
with some watered down,'Champagne shimmer paint'.
Here you can see that the inside got a little stamp action too, and as the card was a little too big for an envelope,
I decorated a brown lunch sack for it!

I hope you like this 'Stepped Up!' card, I love that you can get so much use out of stamps! I will be back tomorrow with another make that features, the 'Fresh Vintage SALE-A-BRATION' stamp set and the lovely 'Simple Adorned' 'Stampin' Up!' jewellery line. 


  1. What a grogeous card. I love this stamp set, it's down on my list for this months Stampers 6. The glitter looks fab too. Hope Deborah loved it - I'm sure she did. Nice work, as always Sally xx
