Vintage Wednesday


I was in the mood for a shabby, vintage style card design today. This is one style I seem to fall back on time and time again as it gives me so much joy to create it. I actually used mostly the same images that I used on Saturday but created a totally different look. I love stamps that are so flexible! I just love definitions and you’ll be seeing this definition stamp again and again as I’m going to want to stamp it on everything!

Vintage Friendship


Quick Tip: Inking the edges of your cardstock direct with the ink pad gives the layers dimension and adds to the vintage look. It actually does the same thing as a mat without all that extra paper and bulk.

Happy creating!
