Okay, this was a labor of love! I can't wait till the new catty comes out so we can start using this set again!
I sorta thought that the saffron had a file folder hue to it (okay, don't yell at me, it's nicer than that but it was 11:00pm :))
I used a black reinker and my old Blockbuster credit card (because it was very flexible) to achieve the markings on the main panel. Pour reinker in a vertical line in the lid of your pad and dip the edge of the card in - simply drag across your paper until you are happy!
Shape Ups used behind the collage with saffron ink.
The postal stamp is versamarked behind the pen.
The first ribbon is white grossgrain dyed by holding it down on the saffron pad and pulling through under a piece of paper. Then I randomly dragged it over the black pad just trying to ink up the edges.
I added the metal accent b/c I saw one on the front if the new Stampin' Success - let's hope there's more metal to come!
Whew - lots of rambling!!!

Great card, Mona. I'm such a fan of all the old looking stuff. I can remember seeing documents at my grandfathers that looked a lot like your card. Thanks for sharing and thanks for all the detail you included!
