This is my submission for the Vamp Stamp Magazine for the November 2010 issue with the theme of "Moving cards".

I absolutely love this old lady image by Stampavie. She has such life and joie de vivre to her.

I stamped the old fence (Artful Stamper) on cream toned cardstock with Versafine Vintage Sepia and embossed with Distress Old Paper and Vintage Photo, then brushed off excess. Stamped part of it again on the left side.

Stamped the mailbox (Flourishes "Friendly Reminders" set #66) with Versafine Black Onyx, then stamped the bottom section only of the birdhouse to create a rocky area. Colored with Prisma Colors and wrote the words "Special Delivery" with a black pen.

Sponged some Broken China and Faded Jeans in the sky area and Crushed Olive in the grassy area.

Stamped the sentiment "Thinking of You" (Quietfire Design) with Versafine Majestic Blue.

Scored the cardstock and adhered it to the back scored piece.

Stamped the old lady on white cardstock, colored and cut her out and adhered her to the card.

Adhered the circle piece to the inside side wall of the card.


Cut 2 pieces of cream toned cardstock 4h x 8.5"w. Score the first line at 1" and the 2nd line at 2", fold and burnish in a mountain and valley fold. Do the 2nd piece the same way. Flip one of the pieces over. Adhere a mountain fold flap to the edge of a flat end (left side of top view). Do the same on the flipped piece to get what looks like the top view.

Cut a circle (#85 on an EK Success Orbis circle scissor), approx 3.4" diameter, without cutting through the left hand rectangular flap that is approx 1"H x 1.75"W at the bottom edge. 

Measure from left edge the width between the card score lines (1"), mark that point on the bottom circle protrusion, and score a diagonal line. Fold and burnish. The left hand portion of the scored triangle will adhere to the side wall of the card. Do not let any part interfere with the folds of the card.

Words written with a Micron Pen, various colors follow the circular form.

Dance as though no one is watching you. Love as if you've never been hurt before. Sing as though no one can hear you. Live as though heaven is on earth.
