Today's challenge at was to create a Vintage card. I rarely do vintage cards....I don't even know if I have EVER made one. LOL

I am glad I was able to participate in today's challenge as I am quite pleased with how this turned out. Maybe I will be making more vintage styled cards in the future.

I used New stamps for August from CLEAR DOLLAR STAMPS called Calendula~October Flower of the Month. I also used the Just For You sentiment stamp from CDS.

I used the script stamp on the Ivory and Kraft background pieces and then sponged all my layers heavily. I also used a piece of Mullberry Paper and frayed the edges a bit and sponged them to create a bit more texture.

I found this OLD button in my stash of buttons....I don't even know where or what outfit it came with or off of. It has to be at least 20 years I am hoping that is vintage enough for today's challenge. I paired it with the last of my brown sheer ribbon. I heated the ribbon with my heat gun to get it to crinkle.

Card Supplies:

Stamps: Clear Dollar Stamps: Calendula~October Flower of the Month, Just for You
Paper: Ivory, Kraft, Chocolate Chip, Mullberry
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Close To Cocoa
Accessories: Nestabilites, MS Border Punch, Large & Scalloped Oval punches, Sponge Daubers,
Sheer Brown Ribbon, Heat Gun, Dimensionals, Mother of Pearl Button

Thanks for looking.

Gloria this is beautiful. What a super ribbon treatment. I don't think I have ever created vintage either. I love the chocolate sponging.
