Back to Basics

Lately, I've been seeing a LOT of vintage and distressed cards. These REALLY aren't my style, though I do LOVE the Vintage Vogue set that was in the Occasions Mini and will carry over to the 2010-2011 Idea Book and Catalogue - YAY!

So, for today's card, I'm going "Back to Basics":

My card today is 3 X 6. This is such a fun little size! And, as an added bonus, you can actually get 4 cards out of one 12 X 12 sheet of cardstock - BONUS!

I stamped the image using markers and the direct to rubber technique. I used Always Apricot (retiring - SAD!), Certainly Celery and Pretty in Pink, both of which are hanging around after the Colour Renovation.

That little strip of paper you see there is one of the NEW colours called Marina Mist. It's a little paler IRL than it is in the pic above. The colour combination that I used was found in Stampin' Success (a demo only magazine) and I love it. It's included in the new Colour Coach that will be available on July 1st. I can't wait to get my hands on it because I can already tell I'm going to LOVE it!

What do you think?

STAMPS: Hello Again
INK: Apricot Appeal, Certainly Celery, Pretty in Pink
PAPERS: Whisper White, Marina Mist and Certainly Celery Cardstock

Happy Stampin'!
