Celebrate Vintage Card

Hey everyone!! I’ve got another Tuesday Tips and Tricks post to share with you guys. I created this project for the iCopic blog.


At the end, there is also a video tutorial!

Here’s my card:


I am not very good at vintagey distressed type of projects, but I gave it my best shot. Here’s what I did to get that vintage distressed look:

I picked out some vintage style patterned paper from Simple Stories, which is now available at iCopic. This pack is called 25 Days of Christmas.

I used muted Copic colors to color in the stamp image, called Pickle with Sledge from Wild Rose Studio, and I based these colors off of the patterned papers I used. I wanted everything to flow. I used the following colors:

  • E40, E41, E42, E43, E44, E47, and E49 (for all the penguin fur, sled, fuzzy part of his hat, and ribbon on the presents)
  • YG93, YG95, and YG97 (for the presents and his scarf and hat)
  • Y28 (for his beak and feet)
  • #12 AtYouSpica Glitter Pen (Silver) for the metal parts of the sled.

Then as shown in the video, I inked around the edges of the Christmassy bingo paper and the image I colored.

To add a little more of a distressed look, I curled up the edges of the bingo paper and also of the scallop. Curled and crinkled paper always reminds me of vintage.

Here is another close-up:

Additional Card Details:

  • I created the scallop using the Papertrey Ink large scallop die.
  • The card base is Kraft cardstock from Stampin’ UP.
  • I used the EK Success Large Corner Rounder on the top right corners of the card and patterned paper.
  • The sentiment is from the Papertrey Ink stamp set called Tree Trimming Trio.
