Old Friends Card With Pull Out Tag

Hi everybody, it is officially the middle of the week and I am still no where near getting caught up from my vacation-lol! Oh well, life goes on!!  I would love to share a Vintage look card that I created using some of those wonderful stamps and products from The Rubber Cafe.

I started with a 2 layers of the Graphic 45 papers, inking and staining the edges of the second layer with some Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Stain from The Rubber Cafe Store. I then added my Vintage photo and stained the edges with the same stain. I added a Graphic45 photo corner sticker , and accented it with some Pearl Jellie Dots. I added another Graphic45 sticker as a header, staining those edges as well.

I then took one of the Melissa Francis Mini Bags & Tags, removed the tag and stamped the bag with the epherma stamp from The Rubber Cafe's Vintage Treasures Stamp Set. I then stained some cream cardstock with Tim Holtz Tattered Rose Stain, and then stamped it with clock stamp from The Rubber Cafe's Vintage Treasures Stamp Set and then embossing it with some Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Embossing Powder, adding a Root Bear Jellie Dot to the center for accent.

I then stained the tag with the same Tattered Rose Stain, and then stamped the corners using The Rubber Cafe's Paisley Border Stamp, and then stamped the sentiment using one of the Friends Stamps from the Friends Stamp Set.

I mixed different colors of Tim Holtz Distress Markers to get the rich color variation, and then added a hand dyed ribbon to the top of the tag.

For the bottom of the card, I added some Vintage look lace, a Kaisercraft Honey Flower, some hand tinted mini roses and then stamped some leaves using one of the leaf stamps from The Rubber Cafe's Leaf Stamp 1 Set.
I appreciate you stopping by and taking a peek at my card, and hope you have a wonderful ending to the week! ~Renea
