Cheery Lynn Vintage Blog Hop


Hello and welcome to the Cheery Lynn Veriloquent Vintage Blog Hop! I'm so excited to show you a few of Cheery Lynn's brand new Vintage Dies! If you arrived from Bonnie's blog you are on the right track. If not, you can return to Cheery Lynn's blog HERE and start from the beginning. Make sure to answer the questions on the Cheery Lynn Blog for a chance to win a $20 gift certificate.


The base is  a 5.5" white folded card.  I cut through both of the folded layers using the French Flair LG Stacker.  I was careful to make sure I didn't completely cut through the top of the card so the folded top of the card was still connected.  I then cut another piece of 5.5" cardstock with the French Flair die and glued it to the top of the folded card.  I cut design paper with a smaller French Flair stacker and then adhered a Celtic French Flair Boutique Stacker turned in the opposite direction.


I used distress inks and metallic cream pastes to color the books.  To get the worn patina look I rubbed the pastes with my finger.  I added the Dusty Miller Frame Corners behind the center Celtic French Flair Boutique Stacker.  Because of the size and positioning they look like they are part of a larger design.
