Vintage inspired Christmas card - really simply and beautiful. I do wish now looking at it that I had "inked" the edges of the patterned cardstock and maybe even the flowers with a sepia coloured ink...just to age it a bit...
Step 1: Gather your Supplies.
To create this gorgeous card you will need a simple vintage picture (I found mine on the internet - printed it off on heavy grade paper and cut it out!), a coordinating patterned paper, a plain coloured piece of cardstock (I used black), a couple of bought flowers or make your own. A couple of brads (split pins) that match the cardstock, some lace, a basic plain card.
Step 2: Prepare the Image
tape / glue your image onto your plain coloured cardstock
Cut around to create a border. I've used pinking shears.
Step 3: Make your base
Using your patterned paper - mat it on your coordinating cardstock and tape/glue to your card.
Step 4: Add your Image
Tape or glue your image where you like on your card.
Step 5: Prepare your embellishments and add
Add brads or buttons to your flowers to coordinate with the plain cardstock.
Tape on a strip of lace, a couple of little folded strips of the coordinating cardstock and then your flowers... and it is complete!
