Inspired by Your Example

Hey Everyone! I hope you had a great weekend. I had a great time. I survived the kiddie birthday party and was pooped afterwards. I napped for about 3 hours! HA! I'll share a few of the photos when they're all processed.

Today, I'm sharing a vintage card. I used many elements I do not typically use, such as patterned paper. AAAACK! I survived and barely stamped! Since there was not as much to do, I inked it up! The card is a larger than my usual A2 cards, measuring 4.5" x 6".

Thanks for visiting and I hope you enjoy your day!

  1. Trim blue damask patterned paper to 4.5" x 6", ink and set aside.
  2. Trim olive cardstock block, ink and set aside.
  3. Trim patterned paper, then stamp text background, and ink edges.
  4. Adhere patterned paper to olive cardstock.
  5. Add ribbon treatment.
  6. Stamp sentiment in blue and pink ink for a shadow effect.
  7. Punch flowers from book print, ink, adhere together, and crumple.
  8. Add rhinestones to flower centers.
  9. Adhere cardstock block to blue patterned paper.
  10. Add to a 4.5" x 6" card base.
