A Vintage Journey - Day 3 of My Personal Challenge

As I have been creating cards with this challenge, I remembered the vintage looking die cuts I used on this card.  I decided to use them!  They would go great with the Technique Junkie stamp set called Vintage Travel Cases - http://techniquejunkies.com/vintage-travel-cases-set-of-5/.

I used Antique Glimmers on all of the base pieces -- the background layered on the base card stock, the tag, and even the "picture wheel" cut from background paper.  For the picture wheel I used the left over glimmery inks on my craft mat on the picture wheel die cut. .

I also stamped the Technique Junkie background stamp Houndstooth Check - http://techniquejunkies.com/houndstooth-check/ - a vanilla piece of card stock.  I used black Stazon ink and let it dry.  Then I dipped it in Antique Glimmers over the ink.  I used Stazon ink so the ink wouldn't run and create a mess.  I used this piece of card stock to cut out the word "Journey" and to cut two of the vintage cars. I used a black marker to color the canopyin the top of the card and the wheels.  There is a second car inside the card.

I also used these other Technique Junkie stamps to add texture here and there:
Wasted - http://techniquejunkies.com/wasted/ and Key Script - http://techniquejunkies.com/key-script/.

I stamped and heat embossed the couple on the tag and a smaller scrap of card stock. From the smaller  scrap of card stock I cut strips of just the heads to fit in the windows of the picture wheel on the front of the card.

A few ribbons and the filmstrip are the "embellishments!"

Do you use die cuts on your cards?

Have a great day -- and get inky!

Hi Judy. Love your card. I always look to see what people put in the picture wheel windows. How clever of you to put the couple's faces! xoxo
