>My "Daughter’s" Going Away Card

>

Well, my “daughter” is leaving us come Monday April 4th for Manitoba.  She’s actually my daughter’s friend, but with the witness of my daughter and us, she became a Christian, and my husband and I have kind of taken her in as a “daughter”.  Since she’s moving to Manitoba permanently, I wanted to do a neat card for her.  I love this card , it’s vintage, but still very clean and simple.

. Using some patterned paper, I stamped the HA classic Fabric stamp in versamark, then clear embossed. I distressed the paper in Worn Lipstick, Dried Marigold and Tumbled Glass. I ironed off the EP, leaving the background. I rounded the corners. I took 4 circles of white cardstock in varying sizes, distressed the edges,, crumpled, then ran Tattered Rose Distress Ink on it. I took a big brad, inked it in black pigment ink, then embossed with Kaleidoscope EP. I attached the flower with the brad, and attached the flower to the scrapbook paper. I added the ribbon, then mounted the piece onto white cardstock, rounding the edges. I finished the card with “Journey” (Quietfire Designs) in chipped Sapphire Distress Ink.
