Welcome! I hope you have had a blessed week and are preparing to start a great weekend. Today I’d like to share with you a card I created recently for a shoebox swap, originally intended as a birthday card but converted this week for Easter.
You may be anxious about making a vintage style card, but the Timeless Textures stamp set makes it so easy! (much like another favorite of mine – Gorgeous Grunge) There really is no exact science…but then again, that may be the reason it makes you anxious!
The best thing to do is don’t think! Just start stamping and layering various complimenting colors and images. The idea is to make it look worn – like a great piece of old furniture that has several layers of paint that has been scraped-repainted-scratched over time. Another important thing to remember is not to compare it to another vintage project, because they are all unique and beautiful.
After adding multiple layers of stamped images, I added three different types of ribbon and trim with a vintage brad. So easy! Here are the products used to create this Fabulous Friday project.
Thank you so much for stopping in today! Please be sure to head over to the Sisters in Stamping blog for other Easter projects and inspiration! Here is another look at my card.
I love hearing from you! Please use the comment section below to send me your questions and ideas. Each message is personally read and replied by me. I hope you are having a blessed week!
