Handmade Cards, Very Vintage

Very Vintage…Project Makes

I made these lovely vintage cards a while back using cardstock from a very vintage buy from Create and Craft TV.  I prefer to make my own embellishments rather than use the standard printed elements that came with this set.

Card 1:

I added some ink to a white doily to give it that rustic, vintage look and glued to the card. I then added some co-ordinating die cut card stock for the centre piece and added some lovely #TimHoltzIdeaology sentiment stickers. Looking through my vintage scraps I found this beautiful lady’s head die cut and added this to the bottom right side of my card. I then added a ribbon flower embeleshment to her hair for added dimension.

The most fun part was adding some dried press flowers and a gorgeous die cut sentiment of the word “believe”.

Card 2:

After adding three (ink stained card, co-ordinating card, piece of velum) layers to my card I added some ink to a white  die cut border frame to give it that rustic, vintage look and glued it to my the velum piece. to the card.

The most fun part was adding some dried press flowers and a gorgeous die cut sentiment of the word “love” and finishing off with a lovely ribbon bow to give the flowers the look of being tied.

Similar to Card 1 except I used the celebrate pre-cut sentiment / flower on this card as well as my own gorgeous insect die cut, cut from the most gorgeous of gold card.
