Vintage Stampin' Up! Birthday Card

Hello lovelies. Today I have been playing with my supplies to make a vintage birthday card. Vintage is my favourite stamping style!

To me, vintage says distressed, antique, texture, lace, filigree, baroque and lots more, so I tried to incorporate some of those elements into my card (all my supplies are shown and linked at the bottom of the post). Here's what I did:

  • I used the Beautifully Baroque Embossing folder with Pool Party Coordinations cardstock, so I could lightly sand the embossing to give a distressed finish.
  • I added flourishes (clear embossed) on the craft cardstock (from Happy Day stamp set). Love the shape of those Deco Label Framelits!
  • For my greeting, I stamped in Pool Party onto Naturals Ivory cardstock which is a great look for vintage cards. I used the Artisan Label punch for those ends, and I sponged the edge of all my layers with Crumb Cake ink.
  • I also used some vintage inspired DSP (from Soho Subway = LOVE)
  • For texture I added lace, sequin trim, linen thread, antique brad, pearls (you can add so many cool things to vintage cards :)
