Very Vintage 1 - Stamping Wheel

This evening I visited my 91 year old Dad in hospital, he is very poorly - all my love Dad and get well soon. Crafting is a wonderful way of helping you cope at times like this as you can loose yourself in a craft project for hours.

I have a class for 8 lovely ladies tomorrow and (for once) that is all prepped, so I have been having a little play and here is what I have made.

Please note that the title of this post refers to the name of the stamping wheel I have used and not my lovely Dad.
On this card the borders have been stamped using the Very Vintage Standard Wheel with black ink onto Whisper White card.

The elaborate sentiment uses stamps from the Style Beautiful set, cut out with the Extra Large Oval punch and mounted onto a Scallop Circle punched from Rose Red card. This has all been mounted with dimensionals onto a fancy square made from Basic Gray card with the Scallop Trim Corner punch.

Tip for using the Scallop Trim Corner punch:
Cut out a square 5cm x 5cm and holding the punch upside-down punch all four corners - your will have a lovely little fancy square to use for sentiments etc.

My next post will be a second card using the Very Vintage stamping wheel - I just couldn't stop rolling and made several cards with the same colour scheme.

Thank you for stopping by, Julia x

    Lovely cards again and I had a great evening as usual. You're right when you are crafting everything goes out of your head. Hope your Dad goes on ok.
