Embace the Old

I am entering this card in the Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge : Embrace the Old.  This is what was said about the challenge:
"Let’s embrace the old, the classics, the stuff that maybe has been forgotten due to all the lovely new goodies out there now. Create something with an old favorite technique, share a project made with a favorite supply that has been around a long time, or craft something that looks truly old. 

I used some of my older stamps, older (newspaper) paper (I've had it around forever).  I also recycled some old paper in the back of a book I am altering.  Distress Ink and Distress embossing powder by Tim Holtz were used.
The honey cream stamp, black tape, and olive cardstock is from Club Scrap.  The label had peeled off the woman stamp so I have no idea who made it.


  1. Hello Karen. Your vintage style card is very pretty. I love the text in the background. Perfect for vintage work! Then, I love your matted collage on top. So pretty and well done! Thanks for sharing your work with us at Simon Says Stamp and Show. <3 Candy

  2. Oh my Karen, you did it again! I just love it. A lot of nice colors and interesting to look at. Vicky
