Remember when …

Do you remember the old telephone boxes.  Back in my childhood very few people had their own telephones but there was a telephone box within walking distance of most homes.

I made this card to enter in the SUO Challenge #64 (suochallenges.com) and this one was to use something that's included in this year's Sale-a-bration catalogue (or catalog as the Americans spell it).  In compliance with the rules everything used in this card is Stampin’ Up product.  See the full list of what I have used below:

I wanted this to look like an old black & white postcard but used red for the phone box (which now I look at it appears a bit ‘drunk’).  This was to make it the focal feature and have it stand out from the black & white.

Stamps:
Feeling Sentimental (Sale-a-bration catalogue)
Lovely as a Tree
Word Play
French Foliage

Cardstock:
Basic Black
Whisper White
White Creped Filter Paper (used over the Whisper White to give an aged fragile look)

Ink:
Basic Black
Real Red

well you sure did make it pop & I still think it looks like the TARDIS, so it's landed in a forest - looks great & sentimental

Stamping over the creped paper... that's really a cool look! Love how you paired the telephone box with the "Remember When" sentiment. Thanks for joining SUO Challenges this week.
