Welcome to card #2. I had so much fun making this one. I love the vintage/shabby chic look. I don't know why I don't do more like this.
I started this card with a 5" x 7" card base from Recollections in Ivory. The back ground paper is a piece of printed vellum from World Win Papers. I have had this, OK hoarding it, for about two years. I love it. But, I am trying to empty out my stash so that I can bring in some new product. I used two different vintage papers from Hot Off the Press as accent pieces. I crumpled them up, spread them out and inked them with DI Vintage Photo to distress them. After printing off this beautiful Gibson Girl image, I added just a bit of color to her hair, eyes, lips and the roses. I inked the entire image and heavy on the edges with DI Vintage Photo to age the card stock. I added a length of double layer, ruffled, ivory lace from Jo Ann's across the bottom portion of the card. I then added the image. On either side of the image I added a strip of flat back ivory pearls. I used Fabri-Tac glue for the first time and although it takes a while to dry, it worked beautifully. The three roses I bought at AC Moore and are made by Chelsey Home. I found this LOVE sentiment in the pack of vintage papers from HOTP. I love the way it turned out. I hope y'all do too.
Thanks for peeking at my creation tonight. God bless.
