Vintage Style Foiled Birthday Card

I made this card for a friend’s birthday. She loves vintage style cards – both making and receiving them, so I thought this would be perfect for her.

It was very simple but I thought rather effective.

I began with a pink cardbase, then found some lovely floral design paper that matched the base colour. I distressed the edges of the paper then adhered it to the base.

I added some cheesecloth to the front of the dsp, spreading it out haphazardly to the card front.

Using the same card as the base, I foiled a greeting, which is from Couture Creations. (Sorry, it didn’t photograph perfectly. The light often plays on the foiling.)

I added the greeting, then added a small flower on the top at each side. I then decided something was missing, and found some lovely silver ribbon in my stash and made it into a bow. I then added the same flower as I’d previously used.

And that was it. Done.
