Soooo.... I made this card a while ago with my gypsy and cricut. I can't remember what cartridges I used (sorry). I think I used accent essential, and.....? I'm sure you'll recognize the shapes.Everything was cut with the cricut... the card itself, the tiny bird, the flourish, the mats the sentiment is sitting on...okay I did say everything, silly me.
The papers are all DCVW from I the mariposa and crafty stacks...If i'm remembering right.
I bought the crochet trim at Joanns, it was one of the "by the yard" laces. I inked it a bit with some Tim Holtz antique linen.
I stamped the sentiment (Papertrey Ink-mega mixed messages) and then used some Tim Holtz Rock Candy Distress Stickles over the top. I kind of distressed all the edges with my scissors, for a more tattered vintage look.
On the inside of the card, I used the flourish that you see on the front (before I adhered it to the front) as a mask. I made up my own glimmer mist with Worn Lipstick Distress Ink re-inker and gold perfect pearls. I just added a few drops of the re-inker and put a tiny scoop of the perfect pearls into a ranger mini mister, then filled with water. You can't see it in the picture but its really very shimmery.
Lately I've been doing a lot more stamping (thanks to a PTI addiction) and so my poor little cricut is sorely neglected. I was looking through my cards and found this one, and it reminded me that I can make a whole card with just my cricut and still achieve that shabby or vintage look I love so much. I really need to take it out and use it more! I really do love that machine.
