Feeling Sentimental

I love the vintage, nostalgic feel of these images from the SAB Feeling Sentimental set. They seem to want to be done in monochromatic and sepia tones, like an old photograph. I used Crumb Cake as the base and ran it through the Big Shot with the Lattice Squares folder. I ran it through again with no folder, just the plates, to flatten out the pattern. This gives it a nice look of textured cardstock. Inked edges in Soft Suede. The main image was stamped in Suede also and edges inked in Crumb Cake. The matting was Espresso, the paper Tea For Two, the tickets were from the wheel, button from Artisan Embellishments kit with some Espresso baker's twine. This set will be great for masculine cards!

just found your blog thanks to Nancy's picks and I'm totally enjoying it! Love this card; black is always so striking as a back drop.

I love the idea and the look of running the embossed piece through with just the plates! A great look and a wonderful card!
