vintage thoughts

Shabby and vintage are styles that I can never seem to get enough of. The texture, the distressing, the collage-style of putting pieces together to make a whole…well, it’s just a design style that comes naturally for me.

Today’s card is one I created last year just for fun with scraps from my desk. If you read Cards magazine, you just may have seen it before as it was published in a previous issue. I’ve been trying to figure out which one but the answer seems to be eluding me at the moment.

I’m still infatuated with canvas. I purchased this canvas at a local fabric store and then tore it into strips to create a frayed edge. I love the texture it gives this simple rolled flower embellishment. The canvas is simply rolled and spiraled onto a Gluber.


Have a beautiful day!
