Concord Vintage Cards—Simple To Stepped-Up!

Today's Two Cool cards show you just how easy it is to go from simple to stepped-up!  If you attend my Last Thursdays Monthy Card class this week, you'll choose which version you'd like to create!

CASEd from some awesome stamper…let me know if it's you!

We start with a Concord Crush base and a plain Whisper White card front.  Next, I colored with Concord Crush and Lucky Limeade Markers on the Fresh Vintage image and stamped on Whisper White for a two-color focal point.  After die-cutting the image with the Labels Framelits, I popped it up with Dimensionals

To finish the card, I added a sweet, lone Concord Crush butterfly cut with the Beautiful Wings Embosslits and adorned with a single Rhinestone Jewel.  The sentiment is from With All My Heart.

This simple card is fast and easy, and perfect for so many occasions depending on what words you use. 

Now, let's step it up!

Concord vintage stepup  

Concord vintage stepup 2Here is the same basic design with a few more details that really give it lots of texture!  I made several changes:

  • I texture embossed the background with the Perfect Polka Dots Impressions Folder.
  • I added a 3/8" Rich Razzleberry Taffeta Ribbon around the bottom.
  • I added Rich Razzleberry to the flowers when I was coloring with markers.
  • I added two more Beautiful Wings butterfly die-cuts.
  • I made the Petite Pairs greeting two-color and double-punched it with the Decorative Label Punch.

Even though the simple card is lovely, this stepped-up version is more my style.
