Splitcoast Tutorial: Layered Vintage Card

This week's tutorial over on Splitcoast is a great stepped-out process for creating a Layered Vintage Card! I pulled out a few stamps from my sewing collection to use, and I'll link them below. 

The background was stamped and embossed with clear powder, and then inked with several new Dyestress ink colors - it's sort of an odd combination but I love the new Bumble Bee yellow ink, and I wanted that to shine through. I shared a review of these inks HERE a few months ago, and the 12 new colors are available now! There are layers of inking and spritzing with water, some stenciling, spritzing through a stencil, and stamping as well.

I used the new Cut-Align ruler in a couple of different ways on my card, and I love this - see that perfect 1/16" border around the button card and the ruler panel? Cut-Align. I did find that I had a little hard time seeing the 1/16" line because my light was to the opposite side of the ruler and the slot was casting a shadow onto the side I needed to see - but a quick adjustment of my light fixed that problem for me. I lined up the grid side of the ruler with my card edge to make sure my horizontal panel was straight, too.

The Cut-Align rulers come in this set of 2 - each has a slot for cutting down the center, and a wide array of measuring and guide lines for precision cutting and trimming. If you're interested in trying the ruler out (or any other products from My Sweet Petunia!), you can use code SCSCUT19 for a 15% discount!

The crochet border at the bottom was stamped and cut from tissue paper - I just tucked it along a strip of double sided tape on the back of the ruler piece. (Almost forgot - I used the centering ruler to get that cut down to card width.)

The stamps I used are all from my line at Impression Obsession - this was a fun collection to design!

Hope you're having a great week!
