Stampin' Up Sunflower Goes Vintage !

Good Morning ! I love all the detail on rubber stamps - they just seem to stamp so well and this Sunflower is no exception. I especially love this stamp as it is just like an old botanical illustration and I also love that it is so big and makes fab large cards and is great for scrapbooking too ! I have double layered this one too - one layer underneath in vellum and a top layer stamped onto whisper white . I have added some sentiments using the lovely Chalk Talk set and vintaged up my card and DSP with Gorgeous Grunge - my inks are pool party, crumb cake , sahara sand and gold ! My card is made from a piece of soft sky co-ordinations card and measures 9 1/2 x 6 inches - I didn't cut off the extra length but scored along the bottom 2 1/2 inches in and folded up to create some inside pockets - these could be used to put a voucher of money gift inside the card ! The DSP on the front is from Epic Day This n' That and I have dry embossed one edge with the delicate designs embossing folder and then inked over to enhance ! 

More gold ink was used to highlight the card stock and the doily and a little looped linen thread and washi tape on the spine of the card add texture along with the essentials wooden element ! I punched a few leaves out with the bird builder punch to set off the flower on the page !
I loved making this card - the colours just go so well and give a nice soft vintage feel - as always and technique questions please ask - you can message me via the link on the right !!
Happy Crafting !
