Using up the Stash, almost no stamping
I'm back with another card that explores the depths of my crafty over abundance.
Sometimes making these cards makes me sad, like today's card. It features a piece of ephemera from October Afternoon, oh how I miss OA, I really loved their designs.
This piece is from the Farmer's Market collection (I'm pretty sure), and it's probably not an image I'd use on a layout, but I really love the vintage look and feel, and I think it stands on it's own pretty well.
I did add a stamped sentiment (from my Maple Leaves Journaling Card set for Neat & Tangled). Rather than using a regular mat to frame it, I'm using another stash item, a library card pocket from Studio Calico. I like the extra texture the stitching on the pocket added. I did insert a second mat into the pocket to set off the top of the ephemera piece and to highlight that the pocket has an angle to it.
The woodgrain patterned paper is from a MME 6x6 pad.
Super quick and easy. When was the last time you delved into the depths of your stash?
