Vintage Purple Card

Thank you for stopping by and reading about my card.  Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog has an exciting challenge for you called "Vintage" with ribbon and/or trim theme.

I just love the ole time cards with the frilly and lacy ribbons with the aged ole paper.  I have made a vintage card to share with you.  I am loving the purple and cream colors this year and had this paper from an ole stash without a brand name on it and started brain storming on how to make this into vintage card.

I make some vintage cards but I am learning by designers who are fabulous at making vintage cards on  how I can add more of their techniques to my vintage cards.  I noticed that most of these designers were using the lace and frilly ribbon.  They distressed the edges of the papers and sponged different colored inks to give the paper the aged look.

I didn't have the exact colored seam binding ribbon so I used the 1/2" wide cream seam binding ribbon  from Really Reasonable Ribbon and sponged some lavender ink on the ribbon to give it an antique look as well as blending better with the colors of the paper.  I used the Zutter Bow It All to make my bow and used an antique looking pearl brad for the center.  If you don't have the Zutter Bow It All, please view Bonnie Garby's You Tube Video to get started on how to use this fantastic bow maker to made fabulous bows.

 I made my own hat pin and stuck it in the center of the bow.  The seam binding ribbon was attached to the card with 3/8" Scor-Tape from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  

You have heard this from me before but I love the Scor-Tape to stick my bows and ribbons on my cards.  If I make a mistake on the arrangement of the bow or ribbon, I can peel the ribbon or bow off and reset it again several times since the Scor-Tape remains sticky.  

I used a paper distress tool for the edges of the printed paper and then wet the edges with water to give it the edges an old look.  I used Ranger Distress ink and sponged it around the center frames with the sentiment.

I added the Wild Orchid Craft flowers and made the angels from a mold.  I added a white feather around the bow since women in the 1800s wore feathers in their hats.

Golden Wedding Anniversary

Welcome back and I hope you are enjoying our new challenge with Scrapy Land Blog this week - Anything Goes. Come see what our wonderful Scrapy Land designers have to share with you.
Thank you again for sharing your beautiful cards on the Scrapy Land Challenge and we enjoy seeing what you have created besides learning so much you.

I want to share the card that I made for my one of my card-making friends using the gorgeous Sue Wilson Designs dies that were purchased at Scrapy  I used the Sue Wilson Designs-California Collection- Decorative Frame A and Decorative Frame B and behind these frames is the gorgeous Sue Wilson Designs-Scandinavian Collection-Copenhagan.  I would highly recommend that you buy both the Decorative Frame A and Decorative Frame B  since these die sets layer well together.

Using gold metallic card stock paper, I cut out three Sue Wilson Designs-Striplet-Emroidered dies using all three dies in this set.  I used the main die and cut three times on the fold white card and glued each gold die onto each cut.  

I glued a 1/2" wide ivory satin ribbon on the striplet and made a double bow with a rhinestone heart ribbon slider buckle in the middle.  I put together a hat pin and glued it in the middle of the bow.  

I love the Sue Wilson Designs-Lace Edge Leaves for my vintage cards.  The white butterfly next to the Wild Orchid Craft flowers is from the Sue Wilson Designs-Delicate Garden Frame set.  I use this butterfly often since this butterfly is about the size I want for many of my cards.  

I make my own angels from a mold and the double hearts came from the wedding department at Walmart.    

I would appreciate a comment to my card and hope you are having a wonderful spring time with your family and friends.   Now it is your turn to share you beautiful card or project with us on the  Scrapyland blog.
