Vintage Wedding - Sat 16th June

Hello Blog friends,

Thank you for stopping by and taking a look at my blog..I hope you will follow me on my crafting journey too - I love looking at the blogs I follow and commenting most times; the crafting world is such a friendly, generous place isn't it? Full of lovely people!

Today's card is a Vintage style wedding card, that I have to admit took far longer to create than was originally intended, but was a joy to make and is my entry for this month's Scrapology June Card Challenge: Vintage

This is just the front of the card: I die cut the aperture using Labels 24*, saving the actual die cut for inside the card. I then embossed the front with a 'that special touch of' mask and coloured the edges and embossed dots with bundled sage distress ink. I then used a light satin effect turquoise card to die cut the flourishes from various Spellbinder sets.

The image is a stamp from Lili of the Valley (LOTV), coloured with Promarkers.

This second photo reveals that this is a concertina card and shows how I 'dressed' the image. Rather that stamp it flat, I cut it out and fixed it to the die with Pinflair glue to give it some depth. I inked around the edges of the die cut with bundled sage and embellished it with more die cut flourishes and some cream and pale yellow paper roses. I used the backing paper in this card from an absolutely beautiful 6x6 paper pad  by Pinkpaislee that I had free a few months ago with Cardmaking and Papercraft Magazine. The Vintage style designs are really lovely and whilst I have used it a lot, it just seems to keep going!

This entire card is made up of stamped images from LOTV (except the sentiment), the other two I only just got this week through taking up their sale offer! On the side with the paper lanterns I also added a butterfly and hearts, cut from Wings of Hope, with a very pale turquoise vellum (although it looks more blue in the photo!)

The final two cards show the butterfly page and a greeting I added to the back of the card, typed on to a Heart Squares die cut. I left one side blank for a hand written message and this card will be winging it's way to a lovely couple who are getting married very soon! * all dies used are Spellbinders

This card is my entry for Scrapology: June Card Challenge - Vintage
