I always seem to be a bit behind the times when it comes to Stampin Up sets - I seem to fall in love with them after they've retired!  This is what happened with In This World - a set I've only just started using and I love it.  It gives me the chance to do the sort of cards I really love - which is lots of layers, inking and vintage style.

I started off with a piece of ST Cardstock in Pool Party - with some retired DSP which has been torn and inked up in Soft Suede.  I stamped the butterfly image and the key from In This World and used the dots from Painter's Palette.  The door was inked sponged and cut out and added on top of some Burlap Ribbon.  The butterfly was cut out of Bold Butterfly thinlets and the small butterfly punched out with a retired SU punch.  A touch of ribbon and thread is added to the butterfly.  The words are from the set and were stamped and cut out and added on dimensionals - very fiddly.

This card shows my love of crafting and what got me into it - I love the inking and when I first got my Big Shot it was a revelation.  Global Design Project  #143 have asked us to show what got us into crafting and this has all the elements for me.

I'm also including this into the following challenges

As You See It Challenge - FRESH - this was a fresh stamp set for me 
TGIF Challenges - Doodle - I doodled on the door adding inked bits for shading

Lovely vintage designed card! The added dimension to the door really makes it stand out. I like how you did the sentiment in strips. Thanks for playing with us at TGIF Challenges!

I love this vintage look, Fiona! I was wondering what was fresh about vintage until I read that you were using a fresh stamp set. I had that one for a long time and only used it a couple of times, so it was great seeing how you made use of it! Thanks for playing along with us at As You See It!
