Here's the sketch for A Crafty Little Place's card challenge--classic vintage. I don't know exactly what "vintage" is. I don't think I've made a vintage card before. Is it like "shabby chic?" I don't know what that is either. But here's my card:
I tried to find my most vintage looking DP. I wanted to use something like tissue paper for lace but couldn't quite get it right so I did the ribbon pleating thing. And I have this really cute Martha Stewart floral punch but it doesn't punch through my PTI cardstock! It's so frustrating. In my head, I used the punch on the tissue paper but in real life it didn't work. Shucks! Even tried to thicken the tissue paper up a bit but it kept tearing. Maybe it's the punch? Maybe it's defective. I don't know. I think I'll keep trying.
This cute little girl and bunny is from TGF called Snuggle. She's so precious and reminds me of when my daughter was a baby and carried around this little bunny too. She used to suck on the ears and then they got all stiff after they dried. Kind of gross. So I had to buy this stamp. I do that a lot--buy stamps that remind me of my kids.
I made the sentiment using PTI's Simple Alphabet stamp set. I stamped the letters and cut them out. I wanted to copy the look of Cosmo Cricket's Tiny Type alphabet stickers.
I liked making this card even though it didn't turn out the way I had envisioned in my mind. It's a little different from what I usually make. But more importantly, this challenge is also to help out Michelle at Stampavie. See HERE. DCRU will be donating $1 for every participant's entry this week. That is just so thoughtful and generous and all I had to do was make a card. So simple.
Well, thanks for reading. Have a great Aloha Friday and weekend!
