Those of you who know me, understand that I am not really a "vintage" type of gal when it comes to papercrafting. But, I have a dear friend who adores everything vintage. Because we were going to be roommates at Leadership and I wanted to make an appropriate card for Ann, I needed to put aside my comfort zone and attempt to make a card that would suit Ann's taste. You should have seen my table by the time I finished this card! But, all-in-all, I am pleased with how it turned out.
The color coach was my source for the color combo of Old Olive, Pretty in Pink, and Night of Navy. Paired with very vanilla, this color combo gave me the "vintage" look that I wanted.
Texture is a must for any card headed to Ann. An assortment of embossing folders and edgelits provided an extra punch. And, of course pearls add a sweet touch. The Labels Collection Framelits provided a base for the flattened Soda Pop Top that was enhanced with stamped images from the Collage Curios stamp set. Applying Crystal Effects to that image produces a shine and it blurs the stamped image just enough to enhance the vintage feel of this card.
The splotches of ink on the very vanilla cardstock are courtesy of the French Foliage stamp set. I've learned from Ann that EVERY vintage card must use this stamp somewhere on the card.
Thanks for stopping by my blog today. Please take a moment to leave me a comment. I do read them and I appreciate the feedback. As always, if you have any questions about this card, just email me.
