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 :).
