Kicking It Old Style

 We were given a challenge to pull out our oldest  Idea Book & Catalog and copy a card from it, using current products.

I updated the original card by using the In-Color Blushing Bride.  I also used the new stamp set, Pretty Postage and added some pearls.  I couldn't resist adding a little sponging around the edges!


  • Stamps:  Pretty Postage, En Francais
  • Paper: Blushing Bride, Chocolate Chip and Very Vanilla card stock
  • Ink: Crumb Cake and Pear Pizazz Classic Stampin' Pads
  • Accessories:  Chocolate Chip satin ribbon, Basic Pearl jewels
  • Tools: Itty Bitty Shapes punch pack, Postage Stamp punch 

Happy Stampin',

  2. What a fun challenge and such a pretty card!
