So I made my DT card earlier in the evening to oblige them - lol. Take a look:
All supplies from Stampin' Up!
Ink and paper colors: Crumb Cake, Cherry Cobbler, Early Espresso, Very Vanilla (sounds like a dessert doesn't it?)
First I embossed the star with Early Espresso and heat set it. Then I stamped the JOY over that with Cherry Cobbler ink and embossing powder and heat set again. Heat embossing gives things such a nice subtle sheen. I sponged some crumb cake ink around the edges of everything to add a bit of distressing. My dry embossing is from a retired snowflake embossing folder (one of my favorites).
For additional inspiration, I used the sketch from MOJO Monday 329
the Colors w/Ribbon challenge at Merry Monday #92.
The Card Concept Challenge #2 Use Texture (my first time here thanks to Sue for the link).
Style = Vintage

I'm really happy with how this turned out. Lately I've been making a lot of "cute" cards so it was a nice change of pace to make a vintage card.
I hope that you will decide to play along with us this week at 52CCT. The rest of the DT have made some gorgeous cards to inspire you as well. Please go visit them and leave a little love. Thanks so much for stopping by to visit me today. Til next time...hugs and happy crafting! D
