Vintage Love


I'm so glad it's Friday! Yaaaay! Starting this weekend, I'm going to start celebrating my "Blogiversary!" On Monday, it will be 1 year since I started blogging and creating consistently. I've enjoyed every moment and have accomplished a lot. I appreciate each of my blog readers. To celebrate, I plan to have a few freebies up for grabs. Please check back frequently to cash in on some goodies and fun!

Anyway, today's card is a vintage style and uses Dawn's damask set again. I never thought I'd stamp over top polka dot, but this new bitty dot paper is perfect for that!

Have a good weekend!

Instructions:
  1. Trim close to cocoa cardstock to A2 greeting size and distress edges of card.
  2. Trim ocean tides bitty dots pattern paper into a rectangle.
  3. Stamp damask designs and sentiment on pattern paper.
  4. Distress pattern paper using paper distresser, ripping, and chalks.
  5. Trim melon berry cardstock to fit below bitty dots paper.
  6. Add loop trim.
  7. Tie ribbon into a bow.
  8. Add flower.
  9. Adhere to card front.

A very beautiful card Ashley. I love all the dstressing you've done and the damask design stamp used twice on the the DP looks very effective. Happy Blog Anniversary!
