Retro Inspiration Cards

I love stacked suitcases so i figured lets make some chipboard designs.  At first i wasn't 100% sold on how they looked but, once i painted, distressed, inked, and added latches- in love with them.

You could paint the suitcases any color you want to match whatever project you are looking on

I used Mintay Haromony Papers- This is my first time working with these brand and I love it.  They have a paper embellishment 12x12 page with great emphemera.

First i paint chipboard, allow to dry  completely (I like to dry overnight).  Lightly sand, then ink (I used vintage photo distress ink)  Wipe off excess ink, the ink will settle into sanded portions, and wipe off painted portions.  All latches painted gold then glued on.  You could distress them too but they are super tiny so i didn't bother.
