This card uses a few items that are retiring and a lot of my favorite accessories, including the Mocha Morning Specialty Designer Series Paper (retiring) at the bottom of the card. I just love the metallic prints with the Soft Suede and beautiful prints. Soft Suede Taffeta Ribbon (not retiring) is used here to wrap the Window Pane (retiring) and the mini safety pins from Vintage Trinkets (not retiring) are some of my favorite accessories!
For the main element on this card, I stamped the raspberries image from Clearly for You in Whisper White Craft ink onto Bravo Burgundy cardstock. This is embossed with White Embossing Powder. I wanted a more vintage look and the white was just so stark and, well, WHITE, so I used a Sponge Dauber and rubbed around and over the embossed image with Soft Suede Classic ink. This gave the image dimension with the shadow it created and also stained the White Embossing Powder to a vintage color. This piece is cut to fit inside the Embossed Frame from the Designer Frames Textured Embossing Folder.
