5 Spring Vintage Cards

-For Scrapbook Parade's April 2013 Stay-At-Home Retreat

I'm thinking that while the Scrapbook Parade hosts the Retreat, we that are staying home are going to have some great fun too. Vintage cards are a favorite here in Victoria, so we had to create a Spring Vintage card class. We are using Authentique's Seasons: Spring 6 x 6 pad to create the 5 cards.

Let's view them left to right, shall we.

This first one I used my Cricut and the Heritage cartridge to cut the fence and the lamp post. The flowers are punched using Paper Shapers Daisy and Retro Flower small punches. The envelope flap is border punched using Martha Stewart's Swirling Lace set and has a magnet in it to hold it shut and then exposing more to the sentiment stamped on the flap.

Next the flap is open.

A lot of Liquid Pearls Platinum is used on most of the cards.

Did some paper tearing for this one, and again used the Circut Heritage cartridge to cut out the bird. Die-Namics Oval Open Scallop Doily Duo (the larger of the duo) is used here and the daisy punch again.

Next is a horizontal card. The only one this time.

You'll recognize the Martha Stewart Butterfly punch here. I attached the lace and then added the Liquid Pearls Platinum along it.

Fussing cutting here using the umbrella and banner from the paper. I wove some embroidery floss in the holes of the Die-Namics Oval Open Scallop Doily Duo (the smaller of the duo). I tied two bows to make it fuller since the ribbon is only 3/8".

And for last -

I curled the corners of the paper for this one and continued with more lace, liquid pearls, and daisy punched flowers.

So that's it for these 5 Spring Vintage cards. Hope you enjoyed them.

Happy Crafting everyone!
