"Memories" card
Size: 4.25"w x 5.5"h

Over at Digital Ink they have a recipe challenge for this week and at Created By Hand the theme is "Times Gone By". Not much time to play this week, but decided to sit down and this is what sprung from my fingers, combining two themes in one, definitely saves time. Note, word stamp is from Quietfire Design.

I covered a piece of white 110# cardstock with Amaco Art Emboss "Bright Gold" extra light wt. using a glue stick. Ran it through my Cuttlebug with the Script embossing folder, then selectively wiped of, using  Ranger's Blending Solution, some of the gold leaving behind a silvery gold color. Embossed another white piece of cardstock using one of the borders from the Organic Flourish set #37-1922. Colored it with some brown Pan Pastels, then with a sponging tool and distress stamp pad Walnut Stain over the high points and added some Ritz Micro Fine Glitter "Bronze" along a couple of the curls. Cut close to the design on the right edge. Rubber stamped the word Memories with Versafine "Vintage Sepia" and embossed with Queen's Gold, punched out with Emagination Large tag punch, and colored the edges with the sponging tool.

The layers were put onto cream toned cardstock card. Gold embossed script, beige ribbon and off white lace at the bottom, organic flourish butted right to the fold edge. Then the tag, only putting adhesive down the center so the tag curls and has some shadow. Then tied a bow from the beige ribbon and then the metal button with shank removed.
