A VINTAGE FFF!

....BE SURE TO CLICK HERE FOR A CHANCE AT MY BLOGAVERSARY CANDY....

I love vintage so I was excited to see that the FARM FRESH FRIDAY CHALLENGE suggested by our smokin' hot Farmer Randi Wall, was to make something in this style.

I used CHEEKY GLAMOUR, one of the three new "vintage" CHEEKY CHERRIES available on Monday, Febraury 15th. Since she seems to be a bit enamored of herself I made a huge vintage hand mirror to decorate my card. It was made using the oval, scalloped oval, fancy tag, and swirl spellbinders dies. I cut them out of brown CS and then embossed the entire thing with copper embossing power. I aged it around the edges with some black Stazon ink. It was the only type that would stick to the slick, embossed surface. I used a CB embossing folder for the top of the mirror and the swirl.



I then went straight to the sassy and sexy Mae West for the perfect quote.


I think the Cherries are perfectly wonderful for all kinds of romantic cards for that special someone in your life.
Have a great weekend and make sure to stop back on Sunday for the Cheeky Blog Hop starting at 8pm CST!

Mrsqueenvee/mrs-flopsybunny said...

Question? What do u use to make your embosiing power stick on such a large area? I would normally use a permanant ink pad but it's never the best? Please tell us your secret!
