So Old Fashioned

Hi everyone.  It's Karon here with you today, from Karon's Krafty Korner - thanks for having me pop by each month Pam.

It's a bit short and sweet this month I'm afraid.  I am in the middle of decorating the second of two bedrooms, but I had an hour on Monday and couldn't resist popping in to my craft room to make a quick card to share with you.

I had bought this little telephone stamp by Hot of the Press called "Hello", and as it came with the perfect little sentiment - I had to make an old fashioned card.  Here is a close up of the stamp, which was stamped with CTMH Chocolate and the little sentiment actually comes separate so you can place it where you wish.

The papers are from a lovely little Paper Collage Kit by Sarah Lugg, called With Love.  Lots of fabulous papers, tags and borders and thought they were perfect for this card.


I distressed all the edges of all the layers and then used Tim Holtz Tea Dye distress ink, to ink all the edges.

I raised the stamped image up on some pop dots to add a little dimension, as this card is otherwise very flat (great for posting though).

For the inside, I used the same papers as the front.  Also, I decided I just had to use the telephone stamp once again, however, I masked off the edge as I only wanted part of the stamp to show and therefore leaving room to write a message.

Sorry, for the short and sweet post - I really must get back to the decorating :-)

Thanks for stopping by.

Happy crafting.
