Yep! Another go at a Vintage card..

As soon as I saw Mynette's post for Technique Tuesday, I just knew I had to give it a go. I really wanted to try another Vintage card for the Make My Monday challenge and thought that this Faux Leather look would be awesome! Thanks, Mynette! (By the way, I made a special trip to the shop to get masking tape because I couldn't find mine anywhere!!)
Ok, here is my card. I found this image on the internet. I made the Faux Leather Panel first and then started layering cardstock behind it. I decided that the black ribbon was ideal and then popped on a metal embellishment with the word "Memories" on it.

How awesome is that Faux Leather look. Using Masking tape.... You have to check out the tutorial. I hope you can see the effect ok. It looks terrific on my end ;)

Thanks for looking xx
