Finally Vintage!

Hi Stamping Friends!

Well I finally made a vintage style card that I absolutely adore!  I don't know why it's so hard for me to do this style of a paper crafting.  I love the vintage, shabby chic look, but I just can't seem to get it to work for me.  Until today!


I made this card for the Curtain Call color challenge over at Stacey's Stamping Stage.  And I also used the sketch from the 2 Sketches 4 You.  This is Kazan's sketch 49.

This card was so fun to make!  The card base is Kraft.  I stamped the damask image from the Friends 24-7 set with White Craft ink.  I did use my SAMJ to get the placement right.  The sentiment comes from the Wellness Wishes set.  For the butterflies, I first stamped the Kraft cardstock with the Dot, Dot, Dot stamp from the Occasions Mini catalog using Versamark ink.  I love the added depth it gives the butterfly.  The pearls and hat pin are from the Pretties Kit.  I did sponge the edges of everything with a little bit of Soft Suede.
