Trying Vintage

card in vintage style with dogwood flower in neutrals
welcome to my new followers! i appreciate your taking an interest in what i do.

i’ve been playing along with magenta’s 20th anniversary monthly challenges all year and this month’s theme is vintage, which i keep saying i can’t do but it’s fun trying. i stamped the magenta flower twice, heat embossed it and sponged it a bit and layered it. i’ve had this memory box corner die for a while, but just couldn’t find a way to fit it onto a card until now and i’m glad i have it. the edges are all distressed and sponged and i added some lace, although i feel like i should’ve added more – can vintage be CAS?

i’m also submitting it to these challenges:
the brand new vintage stamping challenge sponsored by flonzcraft – anything goes ends October 31
sweet stampin’  – vintage ends October 5
card crafter’s circle – vintage ends October 4

thanks for popping by.

  1. Oh my this is simply beautiful! Thank you for joining us for our Vintage challenge at Card Crafter’s Circle!

  2. Whoa! This is amazing Linda…so different from your usual style, but you ROCKED it. Glad you finally found a spot for that die..lol!

  3. For somebody who ‘can’t do’ Vintage, you surely did a fine job! This card is perfect, and exactly MY kind of card. Fantastic colors, the embellishments are wonderful. Great card. TFS.

  4. Yes, of course, Vintage can be CAS. Ooooh I love the flowers and the gentleness of the lace. Now this is definitely Vintage. And, was it you that said, “I’m out of my comfort zone?’ It doesnt look that way to me. Beautiful card

  5. Morning Linda,

    What a beautifully delicate looking creation, the vellum flower, the lace and DP all blend together so prettily. I know just what you mean about the die, I have a couple I bought because they were so pretty but yet to find exactly where they fit.

    Thanks so much for sharing your lovely card with us at Vintage Stamping Challenges this month.
