Vintage Style Card & Treat
Welcome to this month’s One Stamp at a Time Design Team Blog Hop. For the month of July we are all featuring projects with a vintage style. I have chosen to create a greeting card and treat package for a family friend that is not well. My oldest son, Trip, decided the treats needed to be chocolate for his friend. This gentleman means a lot to my son and so we made him a special card and treat. It comes together very easy and is simple enough to duplicate.
During the month of July, I will feature more ideas and tutorials for 3D gift giving. Be sure to check back often!
Scroll down for the link to the next blog featured in this hop. I am thankful to be included in this talented group of crafters and hope you like all of the projects offered. Be sure to visit as many of the design team member’s projects as you can for more great ideas!

Cracked Glass Technique
The cracked glass technique is surprisingly easy. Vintage style and this technique are a perfect pair! For such a striking finished result, it’s a simple process. The glass effect is created by adding layers upon layers or clear embossing powder on a stamped image. That’s basically the entire technique! For this project, I added 11 layers of clear embossing powder, melting the powder in between applications. Once enough layers are built up, place the paper in the freezer for 5 minutes. Once it comes out, immediately “crack” the image in places you would like to see it appear as broken and there is your “cracked glass”! It’s a really fun technique and hearing the crack is the best.
To enhance the vintage look, I added brown ink from an ink dauber, concentrating on the cracked areas. Then wiped the image with a damp napkin and the ink residue was wiped away to give the vintage look. For a visual demonstration of this technique, please see links below to the YouTube video tutorial.
