Vintage Card using August kit from the Crafty Alley

Hi All,

This is a vintage style birthday card I have created using all elements from The August kit at the Crafty Alley Shop. This kit came with 50 12x12 K&Co pages, loads of embelishments and goodies. If you would like to purchase the September kit, check out, they are brilliant value. 
Firstly I distessed the papers with Vintage photo.
I Stamped the image and embossed it using copper embossing powder, as I don't have any copic markers or promarkers, I coloured the image using distress ink!
I then die cut the heart and key with chipboard and embossed them using the copper again. I added the flower and the tag (its a 90th birthday card!)

This was also my first attempt at an easel card, which I really enjoyed doing.

I hope you like it, please leave any comments or suggestions.

Thanks for stopping by

Design Challenge

Hi Guys,

This is my first entry to a challenge. I really enjoyed using this sketch, thanks Michelle. I have used the August Kit from the Crafty Alley shop, which was so nice to work with. Everything is from the kit, although I think the flower may have been from the July kit!

Anyways, I hope you like it x
