Amanda, our fearless leader, is also our hostess today and she's asked to CREATE A VINTAGE CARD OR PROJECT.
I chose to use the new Just My Type stamp set again. I love it so! I went with a mono-chromatic theme of neutrals which I believe fits right into the vintage style. It's a little shabby and a little chic and very sparkly!
I cut a piece of patterned paper using my Perfectly Pierced Victorian Ovals die, stamped the Love Multiplies sentiment on it using Distress Frayed Burlap ink and then sponged around the edges with my ink blending tool and the Frayed Burlap ink.
I layered some soft suede cardstock onto my kraft base, then added a layer of Flourishes Classic Ivory cardstock, embossed with polka dots, and popped up using foam mounting tape. Next I adhered a strip of crocheted lace, a neutral multi-colored ribbon, some eggshell seam binding and a couple of rows of hearts cut with my Silhouette.
I punched a vellum heart, sponged the edges, then glued it to the back of my Maya Road Vintage Kraft Flag Pin. I popped up a tiny heart (from the center of the open heart border die cut) onto the flag. This was attached to the back of the Victorian Oval die cut then it was all adhered to the card front using foam mounting tape.
The last step was to apply lots of sparkly glitter to all the polka dots and the tiny popped-up heart.
I hope you'll play along in this fun challenge with us! I'll probably make a couple more vintage themed Valentines Day cards before February 14th rolls around!
