Golden Oldies

One of the fun new sets in the Occasions Mini Catalog is Golden Oldies which consists of three stamps featuring seniors, each with a humorous saying included.

The Card Games set tied right in with the sentiment that says "shuffle" so I used the image of the king card and stamped it in Real Red on the Real Red background layer. It's hard to see in the picture but it's there! The Jackpot Designer Paper was layered onto black to make it pop and two of the card suit images were stamped in black on the upper left of that. The image of the fellow was colored with Blender Pen and ink from the lid of the ink pad then emphasized with markers and softened with the Blender Pen.

The template and pad from the Mat Pack were used to do the paper piercing on the corners with the Piercing Tool from the Crafters Tool Kit.

The sentiment was stamped on So Saffron cardstock, punched out with the Large Oval Punch and layered on Real Red punched out with the Key Tag Punch. Retired diamond-shape silver brads accent this layer which was added with Dimensionals to emphasize it.

On the inside of the card I stamped twice the four card suit images, inking the stamp with red and black markers.
