Vintage Vogue

I just want to share this lovely card with you today, so I can make a note of what we used.  And please don't think I mean it's a lovely card because I made it, as this is one that we made at craft group just before Christmas, so the original idea was not mine.
We used Bravo Burgundy and Old Olive inks to stamp the beautiful flowers and foliage from the Vintage Vogue (SU!) stamp set.  We ran the white section through a cuttlebug with a polka dot embossing folder, added the striped dsp and then made the topper, as you can see, with the pretty white flower in the centre of the biggest stamped image.  I made mine slightly lower down than it should have been, so didn't add the sentiment provided, as it was a bit too big, so I added the 'Just For You' when I got home, using my Stamp-a-ma-jig for accuracy, which meant I didn't have to worry that I might get it in the wrong place.
I've had a very strange crafting week, where everything I pick up I seem to drop, spill, trip over or break!  Do you ever have a week like that?  Such a relief to go to craft group and have it all there ready for me.  I've realised that some of my frustration is down to a blunt blade in my paper cutter and a very peculiar new blade in my craft knife that puts it at the wrong angle to cut with.  I'll be going out tomorrow to buy new ones of both, as I can't stand it any longer!
Have a great weekend, everyone, I hope you get some 'me' time in the busy rush of life!
Back soon
