The Flower Challenge 22

Vintage is a style I don't often do but I recently purchased Stampin' Up's new hostess set, Very Vintage. I been giving it a run in the last couple of days and used the inspiration at The Flower Challenge for this simple vintage card.

I'm usually a little more technique-driven in my card making but sometimes all a really pretty stamp needs is a setting. I used a panel from the Delightfully Detailed specialty paper for the frame and underlaid it with a piece of Rich Razzleberry. Cutting out a central oval allowed the colour to show through the dots while letting the stamp have centre stage. I used a large oval framelit that I had in my stash for this as the current layering ovals are too small for this aperture.

This stamp is just so pretty, with its etching-like look! It colours up well too. So, a sweet and simple vintage style card QED!

  2. Wow Jan this is absolutely gorgeous!! Love the floral image and looks stunning in that colour. And its nice to see a floral image just stamped and not coloured (which I seem to do ALL THE TIME). And that oval die-cut with the lacy inside edge is so pretty. Its an amazing card, I'm so glad you shared it with us at The Flower Challenge!!
