Vintage Card using August kit from the Crafty Alley

Hi All,

This is a vintage style birthday card I have created using elements from The August kit at the Crafty Alley Shop. This kit came with 50 12x12 K & Co pages, loads of embelishments and goodies.

Firstly I distessed the papers with Vintage photo.
I stamped the image and embossed it using copper embossing powder, as I don't have any copic markers or promarkers, I coloured the image using distress ink!

I added the lace trim around the bottom edge and added two gold brads to support the card once standing.

I then die cut the heart and key with chipboard and embossed them using the copper again. I added the flower and the tag (its a 90th birthday card!)

This was also my first attempt at an easel card, which I really enjoyed doing

There is a tutorial on how to make an easel card by Katie on the Crafty Alley ning network, visit www.craftyalley.ning.com
