I used three folders on my card. I used Sizzix Diamond which is part of the Diamond & Snowcap set and matches the Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses papers. For the small dot strip, I used the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots. And, last, but not least, I used the Tim Holtz Texture Fades Retro Circles folder, which is part of the Rays and Retro Circles set. Oh, and for the Sizzix and Cuttlebug folders, I debossed them. Meaning I used the "wrong side" of the embossing because I liked the look of the debossing with the printed paper.When you emboss printed paper, it just steps it up a notch. For my sample, I used October Afternoon Modern Homemaker paper, from the 8x8 pad. I love me some paper pads! The image on the front of the card is October Afternoon wild cards from the Modern Homemaker set. These are super cool-io vintage items.
My little greeting is an old Stampin' Up stamp, stamped with Memento ink and cut out with Spellbinders Nesties. I also used a Fiskars border punch on the edge of the cardstock. I love my border punches! And that little bit of twine I used is from May Arts. They have some of the BEST trims.
I also decorated the inside of the card with more paper. I think this card weighs about 1 pound! But it turned out so vintage-y. I love it. I hope I can part with it when the time comes to mail it off to someone!
