Have you ever come across some vintage cards from days gone by? Well I wanted to create a card today with a vintage feel. Core'dinations Tim Holtz Shattered Kraft-Core is the perfect cardstock collection to achieve this look. The Shattered look to the cardstock takes you back to days gone by.
Here I have started out by using the Tombow mono glue on the back of the die cut tree allowing the glue to dry semi-transparent. This re-positionable option is my favorite.
The next step was to ink and tear the Shattered cardstock. The ink embeds into the cracked pattern of the cardstock giving the cardstock a weathered feel.
Add some twine, ribbon and rhinestones and you have found your vintage card to mail to someone who will truly hold the card in their hands and think back to a Christmas from the past.
Some days, we get side tracked and while making this card, looking for my supplies, I got side tracked.
Look what I discovered....
A wonderful use for the Tombow adhesive tabs.
Apply the soft side of the tab to the backside of the sponge pad.
Apply the coarse side of the tab to the back of your stamp pad.
Thanks for stopping by my blog and letting me know you were here for a visit to play along with the teams.
Here is the hop line-up for to-day. Hope you enjoyed our week of inspiration with the Tombow and Core'dinations Cardstock team.
