I couldn’t wait to make a card for The Paper Players Challenge (PP220) this week!  The theme is Vintage, and I love making vingtagy cards!


I needed a thank you note for a special someone for something special, so I couldn’t wait to start vintaging up a card.  (Do you like the vintage adjective and verb I [ahem] created?!)

And the SUOChallenge (SUO109) is to make a Thank You card, so I am submitting this card for that challenge too.  Bonus – a twofer! 🙂


Stampin Up’s Hello Doily and Dress Up Framelits seemed the perfect start. I had seen some great inspiration on Pinterest done by Lyssa Griffin Zwolanek and Cheryl Garratt  that gave me bits and pieces to create my final Vintage Thank You Card.  I used the distressing tool to rough up the edges and sponged with crumb cake and and soft suede brown inks.   I used SU Flowering Flourishes to stamp onto the dress form.  A little lace, an antique-look button, some linen thread and lots of little pearls all added embellishment to finish up the vintageness.  Finally, the sentiment is from SU Petite Pairs.



Girly girly – eh?

I kinda love it.  Hope my special someone does too :).

  1. It’s okay, I guess, if really beautiful things are your cup of tea. I love every single detail on this little gem, Jodi. The pearls on the dress form, the lovely “vintiqued” look on the crocheted doily (is it a doily?) are all just perfect. Great job and whoever gets this card is going to love it with a passion, I know.

  2. Jodi this card is perfectly ‘vintaged’ (see what I did there? 😉 ) I LOVE it! The pearls and lace, the subtle browns and creams and the overall ‘aged’ feel. Thanks for joining us over at The Paper Players for LeAnne’s vintage challenge this week!


  3. Oh my, happy sigh! This is simply lovely, Jodi. I love the monochromatic color scheme and how you combined the doily stamp with the dress form! Especially love the pearls and twine “belt” on the dress and the stamping you did on the dress form–perfect! So glad you joined us at The Paper Players!


  4. I absolutely love your vintage card!! The use of the dress form, all of the pearls and lace, not to mention the beautiul distressing- what a fabulous card!! Thanks for playing along with us at SUO Challenges 🙂
