My sister’s birthday is coming up and she has recently found some blogs and websites featuring vintage designs and she loves them as much as I do, so I thought I would make a birthday card for her using some vintage ephemera:
The next time I try this technique I’ll do my velvet ribbon/lace treatment a little differently…still on a learning curve with that! But I love the effect of the snowy glitter on the metal frame as well as the Dazzling Diamonds on the die cut leaves:
The little postage mark is cut from an envelope I had gotten at my church’s yard sale many years ago…I bought a whole box of them mostly for the postage stamps, but I love the look it gives here…although it would have been cool if I had chosen one from the year she was born! Hmmmm…maybe I’ll have to swap that out before it goes in the mail! I cut the swirl from the same envelope as well. I also sprayed the entire card with a mixture of More Mustard ink, alcohol and white Shimmer paint. You can’t see it here, but it added a nice antique color to it! Hope she likes it!
Pumpkin seems intent on commandeering my computers….yesterday it was my laptop!
Have a blessed day!
