This card relates to Day 4 of Week 3. Yikes, class is almost over!
I really enjoyed making this card. As you may know, Vintage is my favorite style of card to make. I’m not a big fan of banners, but pushed myself to do them for this card. I also dyed the flowers, which were originally white.
The background paper is from an old book. Before you scream, I don’t destroy books, ever! This one is soooo old it’s falling apart, and a quarter of the pages are missing. I keep it in my stash to use it as I have here.
Very little distressing was needed, as it was already brown and distressed. I did however crinkle it a bit and add some Vintage Photo to the parts I crinkled.
Behind the book page is dry embossing, which has been inked up with gold. It’s very effective, don’t you think?
The greeting is from Gina K Designs, Holiday Basket stamp set.
