Vintage Take on Paper Craft Crew Challenge #89

The recent cyclone has meant that I have had opportunity to craft without feeling guilty about other things that could be done like the washing. . . but because I am now in the mode I have been quite productive in my output. . .

Last night was a late one. I noticed before I went to bed that the Paper Craft Crew had just posted their weekly challenge and I could not resist having a little play before I went to bed. This is PCCCCS#89:
And this is my interpretation:
Epic Day Designer Series Paper is on special as part of the Weekly Deals for Stampin' Up! until Tuesday 22 April so I thought it only right that I feature a project of two incorporating the paper which is one of my favourites from our Annual Catalogue.

Base card is crumb cake and I have used a variety of stamp sets - Shop Around Wheel, Postage Due, Everything Eleanor, Clockworks, Papillon Potpourri, Gorgeous Grunge and the Six Sided Sampler. . . yep nearly every stamp set on my table lol.
Where necessary I fussy cut and used Apothecary Framelit Dies and the Elegant Butterfly and Postage Stamp Punches. I cannot resist daubing the edges of everything with Crumb Cake ink to add to the aged and grunge look that is evoked by the paper design. For added texture I included Burlap Ribbon, Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding Ribbon, Basic Pearl Jewels, a Paper Doily and a crocheted flower that a friend did for me some time ago.
I also added a piece of card from the Artisan Embellishment Kit which is retired now although it was my all time favourite embellishments from Stampin' Up! I have stamped in Early Espresso, Cherry Cobbler, Soft Suede and Staz On Jet Black ink.
Hopefully you can see that there is some dimension in the card as well. I adhered most items with Tombow Glue and used Glue Dots for the Butterflies.
