Greetings Card - Vintage Look
I really like this vintage look. There are so many products out there right now that make creating this look very easy.
This is how I've made mine:
Bo Bunny Mamma-Razzi papers. If you like this look, you will LOVE these papers. I love the fact that they are double sided too.
I've cut a 6x6'' piece to cover the front of my card and then inked the edges. This really does make a difference.
Tim Holtz Distress inks are my favourite right now.
I printed off a little message onto kraft card and also the 'Happy Birthday'and cut to size, but this could be a stamped image or quote too. The edges were inked again and backed onto black card to help it stand out a little. I used a strip of the same kraft card behind with a strip of thin satin ribbon.
These are my favourite mini alphas at the moment.They are from October Afternoon. They aren't too mini, so can be used for journaling and also titles. They also come in red,green, cream, blue.
To do something a little different with them and with fitting in with the card, I like to stick them onto a plain card and cut out and then ink the edges.
I've them finished the card off with a prima fabric flower.
And this is the outcome.
