Vintage Green

I love playing vintage!! At  The Stamp Man they have a Bingo Card challenge:
I chose: Green, Circle, Ribbon

I wanted to do a vintage style card because over at Frilly & Funkie a brand new challenge blog their first challenge is: Your Favourite Vintage Style.  I am just getting into vintage so I would have to say I lean toward the Frilly side of vintage. Here is the card I will be submitting to The Stamp Man & Frilly & Funkie :



When I think of vintage I think of mutted distressed colours, pearls, lace and buttons.  So for this card I used Laura Ashley papers, Spellbinder dies, a doily covered with DI ( Vintage Photo and Pealed Paint), finished off with ribbon, pearls and buttons.  I had a lot of fun stitching on the card.

  1. This is just gorgeous Lainey and I really love the green which is a favourite of mine. You're very brave to do the stitching too - something I tend to avoid as mine always looks wonky!
    Have a great weekend.

  2. Lainey this is really lovely - the colour is gorgeous, along with all the little details! I'm impressed with the stitching too - I can sew but I haven't done any on a card or tag yet!!

  3. Just wrote my comment, pressed publish and the comment disappeared - thanks for that blogger!!

    Gorgeous card Lainey - love the colour and all the details. Really like the stitching - this is something I can do but I've never done it on a card or tag - bit dodgy if you go wrong as the holes would be hard to hide!!
