Check out my card idea for today’s Trend-Alert Tuesday design, on June’s theme of retro style gadgets
I got the chance to dig in and use a couple of new products for this one, hehe!
The ephemera ‘typewriter ribbon label’ and diecut shape vintage typewriter are both from the new October Afternoon ’5 & Dime’ collection: Miscellany pack.
Frankly anything called Miscellany and you can sign me up straight away.
It is one of my favourite words. (That and placket. Placket. And godet…. Goh-day.
What’s not to love?
Find out more about plackets and godets here if you are uninitiated. And if you are wondering… yes, I have experience of making my own clothes. With plackets and godets.)
Back to the card… So clearly a Miscellany pack from one of my fave papercraft companies (OA) is going to be an absolute winner. And I can happily tell you… it is.
The vintagy button is also from the pack:
It was Jackie, over at Rockwell Designs who inspired me to use the delish woodgrain paper (My Mind’s Eye, ‘Stella & Rose – Mabel’) after I saw her use it recently.
Check out her card here.
Mmmmm, thanks for the lovely inspiration Jackie
And the cute tag – I stamped a hello message (Stampendous clear set ‘Window Box’, which I think is now retired) and die-cut the mini label on my Cuttlebug from Nesties ‘Labels 18′, a new purchase/ investment from Waltzing Mouse Stamps.
Drop me a line in the comments if you have any questions.
Thanks for stopping by then,
