Birthday SASS!

Hi there VLVS friends!!

Pinky here for my first official 
Viva Las Vegastamps post and I am so very excited!

I went for a card this time just to get my toes wet and
to check out the incredible stamps I found- 
can I just say I LOVE THEM?
I really do! Brash, Sassy, and FUN!

Since it is my birthday this month I decided to create a
 birthday card that  says exactly how I feel this year....
and the Older I Get 1X2 stamp was perfect. 
Because I wanted a more faded vintage style for this card I pressed
black ink onto the stamps, then I spotted grey ink over it. 
It leaves a more vintage ad style impression. 
  1. Trim out 9X6 card stock for base. 
  2. Use bone folder to crease middle (fold for card base).
  3. Trim 4.5X6 patterned paper for card front. 
  4. Trim out 4X5.5 to layer. 
  5. Layer card front using Miracle Tape 1/2". 
  6. Using die cut or die cut machine- trim out 2X3" scalloped oval and slightly smaller straight edge oval (Cream card stock).
  7. Using VLVS Housewife in Kitchen 1 3/4X3 stamp pat stamp using black in, then layer on gray ink. Stamp image onto 2X3 straight edge circle. Repeat using VLVS Older I Get 1X2 Stamp onto scrap Cream card stock. 
  8. Trim out VLVS Older I Get 1X2 Stamp image -1.5X3.
  9. Layer stamped images and embellishments as shown in photo. 
And this I will proudly display all month long!

Until the next project, I hope you check out the fun and sassy products
