I have a confession...I'm terrible at making vintage styled cards...
It's a beautiful style, and I see so many other people completely rock it. But I just can't ever seem to wrap my head around how the style works and what goes with it..
So with this weeks Digi Makeover theme being Vintage...I knew I was going to struggle. But I gave it my best shot and I do like the card I've created...though it may not completely fit the vintage style.
Anyhow! I used a few lighter colored papers from one of the pads that gave a vintage vibe. I inked the edges in green..which may not even fit with vintage..but I liked it. I pulled out a stripe of my Grandma Veldink's lace (which is definitely vintage by itself :) ) and wrapped that around the card on top of a scallop cut border.
Using my Silhouette, I cut out the cross from the square paper and outlined it with liquid pearls.
The sentiment is from the Be Still set from Paper Makeup Stamps. I printed it off and inked up the edges. Then lined it up with the lower corner of the cross.
That's it! Pretty simple! I do love this card though, even if it isn't the traditional vintage...whatever that may be :)
So come on! I know there are tons of you out there that can rock the vintage style! Make something up using a digi and link it up at Digi Makeover! We can't wait to see what you create!
