Ooh...I love Vintage!
And I do....just don't do it very often and never know if I am doing too much or not enough. I love this card, even if it is my creation. I stopped by Stampin' Sisters in Christ's blog on Sunday and found their challenge to be to make a vintage card this week. If you've never visited before, please go by as they have a very inspirational blog and I mean this in many ways. I started the card by using Gina K Designs Kraft card stock as my base and then layered their brown with a piece of K&Co dp from the Life's Journey pack. My latest Stampin' Up order included the set Elements of Style which I had admired for a long time. I used the floral and the flourish from that set. I pierced and sponged my dp, two of my fav techniques. I added a brad that I picked up this week by Making Memories...the crochet ribbon is from Walmart and that lovely grosgrain is my clearance buy from SU.
I am also going to send this in to the challenge to use ribbon on your card at Create with Bubbe . I found her through a good friend Olga, check her out at craftieodamae .
Look for a post later on, I had a commission to do some masculine birthday cards and I'll show you what I came up with.
Thanks for stopping by!
