A Vintage Birthday

October 25, 2011

Deanna Tam shared a tutorial  at Craft Project Central during September which featured the flowers from the Vintage Vogue stampset.  They looked so pretty I wanted to add them to one of my own projects so I created this birthday card.

My base card is Bravo Burgundy card stock and I have added a layer of Pretty in Pink card stock and then a layer of Sahara Sand card stock which has been embossed using the Petals-a-Plenty Embossing Folder.  I cut the largest oval from the Ovals Originals Die from Whisper White card stock.  I stamped the large flower from the Vintage Vogue stampset using Bravo Burgundy ink onto Whisper White card and cut the flower out.  I stamped the small flower from the Vintage Vogue stampset onto Whisper White card stock using Pretty in Pink ink and cut them out. I’m not going to share how to make these gorgeous flowers with you – you will have to subscribe to September at Craft Project Central.  I added Clear Rhinestone Brads to the centre of my flowers.  I cut two sets of leaves using the Little Leaves Sizzlet from Certainly Celery card.  I added the leaves to the oval and then stamped my greeting from the Sincere Salutations stampset using Bravo Burgundy ink onto the oval before attaching the oval to the card front using dimensionals.  Finally I  arranged the flowers over the leaves, attaching them using Mini Glue Dots. 

I love the way this card turned out, and now I think it is time that I completed the whole of Deanna’s project.

Bye for now, Kris.

    Beautiful color combo and I really like the dimension you added by curling the flower petals. What a great idea! Thanks for the inspiration! 🙂
