Well , this is my offering this time, a vintage card with a French feel about Paris and travel. Hope you enjoy seeing it. I actually will be sending this to my Mum.
I began with a cream colour base card, which I distressed for that aged look with Vintage Photo, lightening as I came towards the centre. Two lace doilies were similarily coloured and placed one to the right and the other left, on the base card and stuck down. The blank postcards are from a Kanban set on Steampunk that I have had in my stash for a while. the one in the background was stamped with an image of the Eiffel Tower and the postcard in the foreground was stamped with a french script stamp on the left side and a french address stamp on the right. All edges of both postcards were distressed and then a lace trim added around all edges. They were secured in position with double sided tape. A little gem of the Eiffel tower was added as a stamp on the front postcard.
Three paper flowers were each given a gem as above and two tags added. These were created by stmping the Explore Stamp and Imagine yourself here stamps. Just love these stamps .It's not too clear here but skeleton leaves were then inserted behind the flowers. Probably easier to see in the first picture.
A blank chipboard die piece was covered in lace, gems added and another, different Eiffel tower stamp used to add a vintage corner stamp effect.
Hope you have enjoyed this card and thanks for any comments you may choose to leave. Many of the products used are available from The Craft Den. Pop in HERE to stock up on all your crafting goodies and basics.
Happy Crafting till next time
