Vintage Grunge Birthday Card

Good morning.  Today I have a card for you that is way outside of my normal box.  I am going to call it "vintage grunge".  I'm not sure how accurate that description is, but we're going to go with it.  This was an experiment for me, so if you watch the video, you will see how this whole thing came about.  Let's get started.


Here's what I used to make this birthday card:
3 Girl JAM - Harvest Orange ribbon
Paper Trey Ink Kraft card stock
Tim Holtz - "Joyful Song" and "The Journey" stamp sets
Ink - Black Soot and Frayed Burlap Distress Inks; CTMH - Outdoor Demin ink
7 Gypsies "Your not old..." stamp
Foam adhesive
Xyron - repositionable adhesive
Glitter sprays - True Blue with Pewter Perfect Pearls (home made) and Tattered Angels "Tiger Lilly"
Cricut - Art Philosophy cartridge
White cardstock to create mask  (Mine was a left-over cut from the Art Philosophy.  See the video for more information.)
 

How about that video?


Thanks for stopping by today and remember to take some time to enjoy the little things.

I'm linking this to the 3 Girl JAM "It's a Party with Ribbon".  You should come and play along.
