One fantabulous sketch week over at 365 cards is followed by an even more fantabulous lift week. It’s like Christmas Eve two weeks in a row. The challenges this week will be to lift the styles and cards of the DT. First up is Gloria with her clean and elegant vintage style. The card to lift is this beauty:
It’s fantastic. In my card, I didn’t even try go in the masculine direction – don’t have it in me I think, instead I did a feminine card, but followed the blue and distressed beige color scheme, and the card design. I also used a ticket as decoration.
Papers: Fancy Pants, Bazzill, old book pages
|Stamp: Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps – Vintage Musical Figures|
|Ink: Distress Ink – Broken China, Faded Jeans|
|Decos: Ticket – Tim Holtz, Angel – YouDo, Bling – Zva, Brad – American Crafts, ribbon and lace from my stash. Clear embossing powder - Ranger|
I got the background paper (it’s an old Fancy Pants) from sweet Anna – she remembered that this is one of my all time favorite papers and I got 3 sheets from her. I think the soft pattern and that rich teal color is wonderful. Thanks again, Anna!!!
Did you notice the paper flower? I saw these amazingly beautiful homemade vintage flowers on some fantastic cards made by Janice earlier this week. Check those cards out HERE. I simply had to try it out. She kindly pointed me in the direction of Dawn McVey’s video tutorial HERE.
Thanks for the inspiration, Gloria!
Have a lovely day!
