Vintage Love

Hi there! Hope you are having a great day. Thank you so much for taking out the time to stop by and read this blog post. This card is a 5*7 A7 sized card. I took two panels of 5*7 inch cardstock, one was Neenah Solar White 90 lb and the other was Oatmeal cardstock by Wplus9.

I took the roses from Best Mom Ever stamp set and using my MISTI aligned with the Oatmeal cardstock on top and Neenah Solar White (NSW) below it. I used the Simon Says Stamp Stone ink to stamp on Oatmeal cardstock and without moving my stamp, I stamped the roses and leaves at the exact same place on the NSW using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. That way, I had the same pattern on both the cardstocks.

Next, I colored the roses and leaves with copics using V12, V15 and V17 for the roses and YG 17, YG63 and YG67 for the leaves. For the oatmeal cardstock, I used the Vintage Photo distress ink and did some ink blending inwards. Using a lighter bhand towards the centre. On both the panels I splattered some gold paint from Gansai Tambi and Seedless Preserves distress ink, just to add interest.

I used the Simon Says Stamp (SSS) corbel curve due to create a pattern on the lower part of the card using a combination of glitter paper (again from SSS) and some olive toned patterned paper. I used a corner rounder punch and rounded all the corners. I carefully aligned the oatmeal stock on the front panel of my vertical top folding 5*7 inch card, and using my Lawn cuts stitched hearts die I cut a heart out of the copic colored panel. For alignment, I held the oatmeal cardstock (before adhering it onto the front panel of the final card) and NSW against the sun to get an idea of where I would want my heart to be for spotlight effect.

I finished the card off with ‘Happy Valentine’s Day’ sentiment again from SSS, some hemp twine on the top and some sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.

Thank you once again for reading this post. If you like my card, please leave some love for me. It will really make my day! Have a great day 🙂
