For this card I wanted to try to make a card with a bit more of a vintage feel. This is not my typical style but I wanted to try somethng different. Let me know what you think. The paper colors are SU Chocolate Chip, Kraft, and Pear Pizzaz. The image & sentiment are stamped with Early Espresso and the edges inked & the embossing highlighted in Chocolate Chip. I distrssed all of the edges except the card base. The embossing folder is Vintage Wallpaper (one of the must haves in my opinion). The "ribbon" is Pear Pizzaz seam binding. I made the gathers using the technique where you pull a thread on one end & gather the binding by pushing it down the single thread. I also used some bling with the Basic Rhinestones. The corner brads are some retired chocolate chip ones.. you could substitute many other ones for this. I also used the new Dazzling Details SU glitter glue that is in the holiday mini on the pear & the kraft accent around the sentiment. I am so excited SU has this it is just like the Dazzling Diamonds glitter!! There is also some retired chocolate chip felt ribbon under the seam binding. I'm not sure why the cardstock looks a bit lighter than the seam binding in the picture...in real life they look the same.
