To a SU soft suede card base, I added a full size pc of PTI vintage cream c.s. which was stamped in SU creamy carmel ink, with the SU linen bg stamp. I added a misc. black layer. Next is a pc of PTI vintage cream c.s. which I stamped with the SU feather ticking bg stamp. Then another layer of misc. black. I stamped a Tim Holtz stammp on PTI vintage cream c.s., in Ranger distress vintage photo for the focal image. I trimed it and cut the corner. Added All Night Media dimensionals to raise it. I made the button with mulitple layers of recycled packing material, using my SU circle punch. I inked each layer and the edges w/Ranger distress walnut stain. Piereced holes with SU piercer and tied it with jute.
PICTURE - The stamp is supposed to be an old, grainy photo with lots of texture. I took multiple pics trying to get one that looked "smoother" but it was made to look that way, so it's not gonna happen. :)

Whooooie! You worked HARD on t his one. I always wanted to make a quilt with old family pics like this one, but am running out of days. This is what a block would look like. I LOVE your card. Vintage is one of my favorite words.
