You're Not Old, You're Vintage


Hey there!   How is everyone's week going?  I am already tired, and we're barely half way through!  lol  Sometimes I think I should go to bed earlier...  But then when would I craft?!?!

Today I'm showing off the card I made for my aunt's birthday.  We don't see her often, but every holiday she sends Kayne a card with $1 in it.  He thinks it's awesome to get that happy mail so I thought we'd send her some back!  I colored up The Paper Shelter's Vintage Seamstress for the occasion.  My aunt sews and quilts so it's a perfect image.  Also I like how well it paired with the 7gypsies (Hampton Arts) sentiment.  The sentiment is cut using the Fishtails Flags Stax Die-namics from My Favorite Things.  I then used oodles of sewing embellishments on this.  I recently picked up the Tim Holtz Dress Form Bigz die (Sizzix) on clearance at Joann Fabrics.  It also comes with the spool die that I wrapped baker's twine around.  Plus there was a button die as well that I didn't use.  I opted for real buttons instead.  My Lovely View die from Little Darlings Stamps (made by Spellbinders) finally arrived and I couldn't wait to use it!!!  Finally, I added a few flowers, a couple of pins, and a bit of measuring tape ribbon.  Papers are Crate Paper - DIY Shop.



This was a fun one to make!  The Paper Shelter has such adorable images!  I really have the coloring bug lately and have found myself wishing I could just devote an entire day to it.  No responsibilities, no cares.  Just me and my Copics!  I still need to make time for the fabulous Kit and Clowder classes too!  Kayne asked me to color with him after work so we will be making masterpieces in his Angry Birds coloring books for sure!  (But I will have several more cards to share with you this week so stay tuned!)

Have a fabulous day!

What a fun card full of lots of sewing embellishments. The digi image looks like it came right out of the 40s and the sentiment is fabulous. Thanks for joining us at Frilly and Funkie.
Hugs!
