Pink Vintage Rose

This is another craftwork card design that I thought you might like to see.
For this one I started with a 6" square cream easel card from craftwork cards, turned onto its side and folded back on itself to give a different shape.
I covered the card front and the inside with papers from the Shabby Vintage collection in dusky rose.
The square parenthesis shape topper is made from a Kanban white stackables die-cut shape, stamped with a partial image from a Kanban clear stamp. It came in a multi set from QVC a while ago.
I used the same stamp along the inside edge of the card and also around the message tag. The message tag itself was a die-cut from craftwork cards sentiments.
I used just two colours of Ranger distress ink to colour the images, old paper & spun sugar, and also used the old paper ink pad to distress all the card edges and for the soft stamping effect inside the card.

The overall effect is very subtle and muted and I think the card would be suitable for so many different occasions.

Hope you like it :)
