Vintage Best Wishes

Vintage Best Wishes Card Happy Monday morning! I hope you had a fabulous weekend. Ours was good but very full, nothing out of the ordinary:)

Today I am sharing one of the two projects we did at my open house this weekend. I must admit that this card was inspired by one that I saw on one of the display boards at leadership, with a few changes to make it my own. I am loving all the new vintage images in the mini, especially after seeing what Shelli did with them at leadership!
Check out this gorgeous flower! Any idea how I made it? All I did was take a 2-1/2"x2-1/2" piece of whisper white cardstock and stamped the vine image from Vintage Vogue (117690) over and over in Rich Razzleberry ink to create my own patterned paper. Then I ran it through the Big Shot using the Floral Fusion embosslit (115969). I love this little layered flower! After cutting it out, I crumpled the flowers, did direct to paper with Crushed Curry, layered them and inserted a gold brad. Super easy but absolutely stunning!
I will be back tomorrow with the other project that we made.
Thanks for stopping by!
