Hello there friends and crafty peeps! Well it seems like there is lots of group posts happening today so this is the second post I have that’s featuring a project that is part of a crew event. This time I’m sharing a vintgy Valentine card created for Authentique Papers.
I’m using the Romance collection for this card. I love the patterned papers and retro images!
I enjoy creating 6 x 6 square cards as it makes it a snap to measure and cut the papers.
There’s quite a few patterns here stacked up so I’m using the coordinating Spectrum cardstock to keep it from looking busy. I’ve also layered the Elements die cuts to create a one of a kind sentiment embellishment.
Last but not least are loads of perfectly matching flowers, vintage buttons, and dangly metal charms.
Make sure you check out the Authentique Paper Blog to enjoy the projects created by the design team…I’ve had a schenaky peek and they are fabby!
Hello there friends and crafty peeps! It’s kit time…..my favorite time. I just love kits. Getting all the pretty pieces out and moving them around until I create fabby projects. The theme for this months kit is St Patrick’s Day. Here are the projects I created with the kit….
Hello there friends and crafty peeps! Here in Min-Michigan we are trapped in the winter vortex. Not an actual thing…I just made it up. But it does feel like January is dealing us a knockout blow before it moves on. Snow and wicked cold are not my idea of a good time. Thankfully I can hibernate in my shop and work on Easter cards to make is feel more like Spring.
Like this very vintagy inspired Easter step card created with the gorgeous Jubilee collection from Authentique Papers.
This collection has plaids and checks and tiny carrots…what’s not to like?
I’ve paired it with some perfectly coordinating flowers. Some are Little Birdie Crafts now available at AC Moore and some made by me.
Pretty trims from RRR with a vintage button and metal charm.
The sentiment was clipped from the cut apart sheet.
This banner is die cut from one of the patterned papers and popped up on spacers for added depth then topped off with more vintage buttons.
The back is finished with the coordinating papers and a space left to add a personal sentiment.
Here’s how it looks setting upright. You can see the dimension you get form the steps.
Please enjoy this tutorial on how I created the card….
