TGIF! How I love Fridays! I've been revamping my blog this week taking it to a more vintage/shabby chic look. Let me tell you --- there are A LOT of vintage blogs out there and a boat load of free vintage stuff! I have so much creative flow going on inside my head I don't have the time for it to flow out my fingers! LOL!
Anyway, I tried the vintage style on this card and I used the layout from 2S4Y's challenge this week. The photo's a little bright and so the ivory cardstock I used as my base card doesn't show up as well. I also used my new Spellbinders Impressabilities floral & stone to emboss the red cardstock, which can be seen better in the second photo.
The center picture is actually a photo I took of a miniature china plate that belonged to my maternal grandmother, which I inherited. I photographed it in front of some sage green vintage scrapbook paper and shrunk it down to size for the card. I also used the same picture to make a die cut for a wooden vintage type plate I made to go along with the card. Photo here:
