We have a wonderful theme for the next two weeks at Retro Rubber, create a vintage style card!
I will admit that this is not my current crafting style, however it sure was fun to dig out the lace and butterflies!
I started by searching my stash for vintage feel patterned papers and found a few coordinating sheets from an old Provo Craft paper stack. Heartfelt Creations Fleur Borders and Pockets was perfect to create a background die cut. A patterned paper in a very subtle floral pattern is perfect under the die cut. Next I adhered a bit of lace from the Paper Studio’s Ribbon Scrap Pack Brown/Cream. A brown distressed sheet backs the floral pattern, and the layers are mounted on a 5” x 7” card base. Prima flowers from my stash cover the flowers in the die cut and are topped with pearls. Martha Stewart made a few butterfly punches I just had to have about 12 years ago . . . and they create a delicate punched butterfly that was a match for this card. I used Delicata in Emerald Green, Dark Shimmer Brown, Pink Shimmer, Rose Gold, and small touch of Ruby Red to color the butterflies. The finishing touch was the script thank you sentiment from the In and Out set by Taylored Expressions from Oct 2014. It is stamped in Delicata Dark Brown Shimmer.
