vintage flowers

As most of you know I am really not a fan of pink anything, however I always try to get over that when I am making cards for others. I made this for my gram's 88th birthday and since she loves pink, I used only pinks and neutrals for the main colors. I just love the new set Vintage Vogue, and I really like to distress the cards I make with it. I am also working on a scrapbook page using this set, and of course it is a heritage page.

It is hard to see on these 2 pictures, but I actually embossed the pink cardstock first using the elegant bouquet folder, then I misted the cardstock with water and crumpled it up. When I un-crumpled it and left it to dry it looks like really old paper.
I also sponged a little chocolate chip ink on the edges of all the flowers to soften them up a little, and make them look older as well. I did the same with the edges of the very vanilla cardstock. Stamps: Vintage Vogue
Inks: Pretty in Pink, Regal Rose, Garden Green, Chocolate Chip
Papers: Very Vanilla, Chocolate Chip, Pretty in Pink
Misc: Corduroy Buttons, Distresser (from the cutter kit), Crop-A-Dile (to make the little flower centers), 5/8" Chocolate Chip Grosgrain Ribbon

Until next time, Happy Scrappin'
