This first one is CASEd from a card I saw here. I already had the old hymnal from 1913--something I'd bought at an antique store with a different project in mind (still haven't done that other one yet!). When I saw her card, I KNEW the hymnal I had would be perfect.
The stamp sets are Aged Ornaments and Savvy Sayings. The paper is Amberley Grace, kraft and ivory ultrasmooth. The inks are Burnt Umber and Versamark Champagne Dazzle (hard to see the sparkle in the photos). I sponged the edges with a hydrasponge, and used my Corner Chomper on the 1/2" setting for the corners. The Cloud Scissors gave a nice scalloped edge. It's tough to see, but the button is tied with brown Scrapper's Floss.
