Vintage Sentiments

This is one of my all-time favourite card designs I think with it’s wonderful vintage feel.  It was originally a Christmas design but translates perfectly through to any kind of general one as you can easily change whatever text you put on the postcard.

I’ve matted a lovely vintage paper from Pion Design onto gold mirri card, then printed off a postcard with my WordArt verse on it which got matted onto a wonderful white doily which just sets it off wonderfully.  I love this particular verse as while not biblical per se, it’s ideal for anyone, Christian or not.
Finished it all off with a white ribbon and group of mixed flowers – this time using some from Prima as well as Wild Orchid Crafts, and some white pearls.  It’s such a hugely versatile card I know I’ll be making many more but sadly Prima have gone & changed their stock again, so the beautiful cream flowers aren’t available anymore.  But that’s ok – just have to try using some other colours or sizes etc.

So far I’ve only made this as an “ordinary” card rather than an easel but it would lend itself nicely to an easel style too.

I'm entering this into the Wild (oops KEEP writing that LOL!) sorry Word Art Wednesday challenge
