Hello Everyone,


Autumn is here and it is getting much cooler up the valley, but still quite reasonable here, just like late in the season should be!!


So I made a card that is a bit like me.  Vintage and getting better with the age of it.




This is just a stunner that has completely blown poor Ted away.  When I think Vintage, I think lace and pearls, muted tones, burnished edges and roses and other flowers.  I also think of script or running writing and memories to be fondly remembered.


So I took a piece of paper I got in a pack recently called Arcadia, it is a little pack about 4 and 1/2 inches by 6 and a 1/2 inches with four sheets of each pattern in it.  Mostly oldish, mostly muted and lots with flowers on them.  Perfect I thought.  And the size makes it perfect for a card, it covers the font and gives a bit left to decorate inside the card.


So I put it on a panel for an A6 size card and distessed around the edges with the  Paper Distresser and then inked it with Ranger Distress Ink Antique Linen.  Attached the ribbon along the botttom, inked that too… added the inked leafy flourish (die by Boskut) and then attached some pearl stings.  Then I inked the flowers, and popped them on.


The sentiment is by Lucy’s Stamps and is good one.  The label with the sentiment is attached with dimensional foam.  Finished off with sticky back pearls.


Hope you like it!!


Hugs 🙂
