Artistic Etchings

I just love all of the vintage items and stamp sets in the new catalogue!  Not that I am the best vintage cardmaker or scrapbook page person....yet.....I just aspire to be!  So, today I worked on my aspirations of being a vintage person by making this gift card/envelope with the Artistic Etchings set. 
I loved making this because A) It was quick and easy B) It turned out as a simple, but gorgeous looking enclosure for a wedding gift!

For the envelope, I cut out a Very Vanilla Scallop Envelope using my Bigz diecut.  I stamped my images from light to dark - Pink Pirouette, Cherry Cobbler, and Basic Black.  I finished off the front with a sentiment from the Teeny Tiny Wishes set.
For the gift enclosure, I used a few of the same images and the same color scheme.  My sentiment came from the level 3 hostess set, Occasional Quotes.  At the bottom, I used a tiny piece of the Newsprint DSP with a torn edge at the top as well as a small strip of textured Pink Pirouette cardstock.  And that's it!  Less than 30 minutes from start to finish!  Gotta' love that!
