I am combining two challenges here. Pals Paper Arts is challenging us to make a vintage project. Many card makers have that down to an art. I, however, do not. Vintage is not really my style. I love it, but I just have trouble producing it myself! So, I went on a Google hunt for ideas from actual vintage greeting cards. Ingenius, I know. ;) I found this picture:
I think I may try to make cards similar to a few of these cards pictured. But, my eye first fell on the card in the middle of the top row. I figured I could come up with a card that looked a little like that one.
Over on Stacey's Stamping Stage, is a great color combination (that I'd like to try again)! I decided to use it for my vintage card. On one site I came across while Googling, I read vintage can be achieved using muted colors (among other things, of course). Not that Melon Mambo is muted... but I figured by sponging onto my stamp I could get away with it! :)
It's not what most would imagine as "vintage" in the paper crafting world, but here is what I made:
Stamp Sets: Kind & Caring Thoughts, Afterthoughts
Ink: Wild Wasabi, Pink Pirouette, Melon Mambo
Paper: Crumb Cake, Pink Pirouette, Wild Wasabi, Whisper White
Tools: Corner Rounder punch, Eyelet Border punch, Big Shot, Square Lattice EF
Embellishments: Crochet thread, Antique Brad
