A VINTAGE CARD FOR THE OUTLAWZ


The image featured on my card is a digi by Sandi's Samples, and is coloured using alcohol markers and a white gel pen.

I decided that she looked like she was from yesteryear and so I needed to make a vintage themed card.

Here is what I used on my card, from the bottom up:

cream CS base card
cream CS card mat with inked edges
offcut of vintage DP with inked edges
brocade flowers
satin ribbon and bow
stitched on arch of peach coloured beads
stitched on ruffle of vintage lace
string of pearl beads
spray of flowers
Although i spent way too much time and effort stitching everything on by hand, I loved creating this project and I think it's going to be one of those that I pin up on my "brag" board.

  4. Hi Jen, all that tricky stitching work has made for a fabulous card. I love the way the striking curve of ruffled lace and peach beads echo the curve of her hat. Her pearl necklace is stunning. A gorgeous card.
