CAS-ual Fridays: Shaped Cards

I'm just slipping this CAS-ual Friday shaped card in under the wire! ;)

I'm hoping that despite the vintage look that this card is still considered Clean And Simple...


There are so many wonderfully original shaped cards already submitted but I wanted to try out m new stamp set from Technique Tuesday.

After die-cutting the front and back of the card, I embossed only the front. Leaving the die on, I stamped the gingham. Stamping over Spellbinders usually causes imperfect stamping so I made this work by inking the edges and fussy-cut typewriter with vintage colors: Antique Linen and Old Paper Tim Holtz Distress Ink.

I used the Antique Linen on the lace as well.

I used my Martha Stewart scoreboard to score the back die-cut and adhere it to the front.

Thanks for stopping by!
