I was about to go to bed last night and I was looking at this huge box of my old DJ vinyl when I had the idea of making a card from an old vintage album cover. Now I'm sure I'm not the first to have this fan-freekin-tastic idea, but I will pat myself on the back anyways. So, I went to the Goodwill and grabbed a couple of old crusty dusty Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass records to experiment with. What I was really looking for was some cool colors and maybe a good image of a chic from the 50's or 60's...but it was a bust, no such luck. So, I just cut up one of the album covers, painted over it with some white paint and used that as my base for the card.

Paper: Vintage album cover, floral print from K&Co.
Inks: Peeled Paint Distress Ink from Ranger.
Other: Paper ribbon from K&Co., flower from K&Co., button, twine, stitching, and collaged cut out from the album cover with some stuff about music on it...cool.


Pattern or design used: My own design
