When I saw the challenge at My Time To Craft was Vintage I have to admit I panicked a bit, I don’t own anything to make a “Vintage” style card. Talk about a challenge!
I found an old paper pad, Moments Remembered from Lasting Impressions that had a DP with old postcards on it – it was a start at least.
I dug through my stash of paper scraps and found a script DP from The Paper Studio that I used in the background.
I took a paper doily and aged it with a Distress Ink pad.
Thank goodness for Create with TLC as I was able to find several vintage style images and I thought this one was just so sweet. I changed the ink color to brown as I didn’t want the printed image to appear to harsh.
The sentiment is also from Create with TLC, I printed the sentiment from the computer again changing the ink color to brown to better fit the color scheme. I then used a Spellbinder die cut to cut out the sentiment. Did you notice the pealescent sheen on the sentiment? I just love how special this paper is.
All in all, for my first Vintage style card – it turned out pretty well.
I hope I’ve inspired you to give Vintage style cards a try. Check out the cards from the other girls on the DT, you will be truly inspired.
I can’t wait to see your creations!
