Vintage Cards to Share

Hi everyone, thought I would share the cards I made last Tuesday at Shirley's house. Shirley normally makes up 3 card kits and we stamp and colour and put together. This time it was just the two of us and as she has had a bit on her plate lately,  she put out some of her pretty papers and postcard toppers from Kraftyhands on the table for me to play with while she coloured in a DT image for Make It Monday where we are both teamies.There is no craft today as her daughter and SIL and grandies are here to visit her and I think she and Doug will be pretty busy entertaining and being entertained too. LOL.

This first one is a wonderful vintage card for a Male. Love the muted browns of the DP paper and the fab vintage postcard topper. I adhered it on an angle and added the SU sentiment which was stamped, cut out by hand and placed onto Old Olive cardstock and then punched with the matching punch ~ also from SU.

This second one is going to be for my Mum (who reads my blog~just pretend you haven't seen it when you finally get it, LOL) I love the fresh daisy paper and these fab horses. I chose not to add a sentiment to this one as I really wanted the horses to be the main focus. After rummaging through Shirley's copious amount of flowers, I finally found one to go with my card and then it took us another five minutes or so to find something to put in the middle.All the bling that might have matched were just too small.  Shirley had these little round white discs that already had a piece of adhesive on the back and she coloured it with a Copics Marker to match it in with the paper.

This last one is a take on one she did as a DT card for Krafyhands, using the same paper and general layout, but I changed the bottom section slightly by adding a sentiment in the middle and some pearls on the top and bottom of the panel. I just love this wonderful floral paper. Just gorgeous!!! 


It's been a while since I have posted something other than DT cards, so I've enjoyed sharing with you some of the other things I have been making. Next term I will be teaching a few different Christmas things, so I will be able to share them too after my class have done them.
Have a great day and thanks for popping in.
