Today I have something very different for me as this is not my usual style. Usually I like to work in much bolder styles, but a friend commissioned a card from me and wanted a vintage style for an important birthday.
I began by preparing a card bank from a heavy stock kraft sheet. I then matted this with some different types of paper
Next I prepared to more pieces of paper by edging them with some of the pretty laces available from Crafty Ribbons (Links included below)
These were then added to the card
To finish, the card was embellished with flowers, wooden decorations, gems, stickers and a sentiment
I think the overall effect is very pretty and a lovely floral, vintage tribute for a very special occasion. The lady in question is 100 so I thought this style would work well.
I also made this matching envelope
