Vintage Blue


Although I love lace and the vintage look, I don’t often make vintage themed cards.  I was inspired by a card I saw with an embossed, then sponged background.  I used the Textile cuttlebug folder  and sponged lightly over the top.  I stamped my flower and my sentiment then cut them out.  The oval was cut using the CM oval cutters and the tag with the ticket corner punch and a little trimming.  I wanted the same thread on the tag as is in the lace so I unraveled some of the lace to get enough thread to tie a little bow.

Thanks for dropping in today.  I hope to be back tomorrow with my CASE from the Sunday’s featured stamper on Splitcoast.

  1. The delicate colors, your lacy trim, and the toile-like image are beautiful! I always see Bordering Blue as a soft subtle, and you certainly made a soft, subtle card!
