I seem to be stuck on square cards these days! And vintage! But I just couldn’t help myself when I saw Kristin’s pretty MTME papers……..they just whispered “shabby” and “vintage” to me, so that’s the way I went. I used the square Mojo Monday sketch #176:
to make this:
I had bought this squiggly satin trim at a yard sale for 10 cents and was just waiting for the right moment to use it…finally! It was the perfect embellishment for the sketch. I stamped images from Nature Walk on the striped paper; made a little “grapevine” wreath from hemp twine (thanks, Erica, for that idea!) and embellished it with miniature vintage postcards, lace, old buttons from my stash, some ribbon and pearls. I stamped the sentiment from Artistic Etchings on a scrap of Crumb Cake that already had Medallion stamped on it and punched it out with a small oval punch. Really, the whole thing did not take as long as I thought it would and my trusty little hot glue gun made short work of the assembly! It is quite a dimensional card, though---I will need a padded envelope for this one!
This also qualifies for the C4C72 challenge—shabby chic! Thanks for visiting today—be sure to link your creation to the CTD blog so we can see it too! And here are the other designers—please check them out and give them some love!
