Case Study Challenge #17 - Vintage Card

I was inspired by the Case Study Challenge this week as it was a vintage creation by Nina Brackett and as I have a totally different style of cards to this theme, I would give it a go.

I had to look for some lace which was hidden in one of my boxes from years ago and then tried out a new background stamp set that I inked up for the first time, En Francias with a little flourish from my all time favourite Baroque Motifs with the sentiment coming from Contempo Christmas. I punched out three of the ornaments and stamped on both sides to create a three dimensional Christmas decoration with lots of sponging on the edges with the sponge daubers.

With constructing a vintage card, it is laying and laying of textured materials and I think I achieved it and with all the edges of cardstock sponged to give futher depth.

Stamp Set: En Francias, Baroque Motifs, Contempo Christmas
Card: Always Artichoke, Soft Suede, Cake Crumb
Ink: Always Artichoke, Soft Suede
Accessories: Cream Lace, Ornament Punch, Sponge Daubers, Hemp Twine, Wine Narrow Organdy Ribbon
