A Touch Of Vintage

I have made a card that is so out of my comfort zone this time - I am not at all into vintage or anything olde time like - but - its more to show what can be done!!!

This card was made using the latest Krafty Hands cd - VINTAGE CHIC BOUTIQUE

Its a lovely cd - the colours are quite muted so have that vintage look and feel without really adding much else to it!

Krafty Hands cds generally come with the elements sheet and a backing sheet and they go hand in hand so if you need a quick but pretty card this may be worth looking at!!!

To make my card I chose an A4 sheet of matt black cardstock and after scoring on the eazi score board I trimmed 2cms from the front of the card. Using an EK Success border punch I created a strip of fancy edged green mirri card which I then stuck UNDER the front sheet of my card making it the same size as the back now.

The main backing paper was cut and positioned on the card with double sided tape - then I edged the main panel as well and the inner panel with green holograhic straight border peel offs - this looks like it is matted onto green mirri card - a useful technique to remember when you need narrow borders but dont have the right mirri card!!!

I then used thin sticky pads to place the beautiful scrolled frame in the centre of the design and also for the perfume bottle.

My quickie glue pen was used to edge the bottle and stopper, plant pot and dove, then I sprinkled with the glamour dust.

A large dusty pink heart gem was placed on the bottle neck and I added some green FLOWER SOFT to the tree for something different!

Rather than use a normal sentiment I cut a small piece of the black panel I had removed at the start, and chose a rub on sentiment JUST TO SAY - the corners were decorated with tiny pearls.

And to finish this card I added 2 different shades of green tiny self adhesive pearl to the 3 unused corners!!!

I hope you enjoyed the vintage feel of this card.....

See you next time for a touch of luxury!!!
