Something different for me

~~~~~~~~ how fun... this card is going to be in Scrapstreets Mag November issue ... I'll be able to put the picture back then~~~~~~~

Though I've done many vintage print cards in the past, I had gotten away from them with the surge of digital designs. I had an anniversary card to make and thought I'd go back to using a vintage flower print. I did my usual printing of a few copies, cutting some parts out to be used as layering for a 3D effect. With this one I decided to give the print itself a little more texture and used my Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder and debossed the print and the parts to be used for layering. I kind of like the effect... what do you think? Then I embossed the background paper with a different Cuttlebug folder and added some stitching, finishing it off with some dew drops and a gold butterfly.

Stamps: none, vintage print
Ink/Color: printer
Paper: Kodak photo paper, Bazzill
Misc: Cuttlebug machine and folders, sewing machine, dew drops, gold butterfly

This project got a Shout Out by Card of the Week.
