Tuesday Trigger: Vintage Vagabond

Hello there!

I finally had some time today after a busy week, and decided to make a card based on the current Tuesday Trigger inspiration:

I love the colors and the geometric designs here, not to mention the stripes in the background!

But before I go to the card, I want to thank all those who left such nice comments on my last TT card (the button card). I didn’t get a chance to thank you individually as I had a jam packed week, but each comment made me smile, and I appreciate your taking time to leave a few kind words 🙂

Now onto this week’s card:

TT Vintage Vagabond

For the main panel I stamped the Hero Arts Canvas stripes stamp with Black on Gray card stock. Then I die cut the “Absolutely” on top using the Simon Says Stamp die. The coordinating sentiment is embossed in white.

The eye-catching black&white embellishments were made using the SSS Delicate Dahlia die. I simply glued the die cuts on the contrasting card stock and used a circle punch to punch them out.

I used the Hero Arts Bold Pop designs for the brown burst. I also added a SU! Antique brad at the center, then decided to cover the the center of the brad with a rhinestone (which shines white) to balance the other two embellishments.

One thing I want to mention about this card is when I was designing it, I hadn’t seen the trigger photo for some days. I thought of taking a peek but was a little pressed for time, so I just went with what I remembered. Frankly, what I did remember was two black & white prominent elements and the background stripes. Later, as I was posting this, I realized that the brown burst resembles the cage and even the antique brad resembles those brass pots  in the picture. Complete coincidence but good ones 🙂 I think sometimes it is a good thing not to have the inspiration photo in front of you or look at it too much, and just go with what you remember from the first look.

I gave this card to my husband today. I think he liked it, as he asked me to make another for his father 🙂

Thanks for stopping by!
