For the Vintage Mom

I’m still making Mother’s Day cards? How about you all? I’ve been dying over here to create various projects, but last night the “vintage” style won and I created this card. It’s not a traditional Mother’s Day card, but one that would be perfect for the vintage mom. A mom that appreciates those unique finds in antique shops in those little quaint towns.undefined

To start, I used Unity Stamp Co. Provencial Collection – Carte Postale stamp set. I thought this unique set was so gorgeous and I had to have it. The problem was, I haven’t used it! So, I just started stamping, picking my favorite stamp out of the set to start with first. I stamped it on vintage cream cardstock using melon berry ink. I cut it out with scissors, then stitched around the border. I also added some Ranger distress ink (antique linen and vintage photo) to the edges.

I trimmed some Pink Paislee Butterfly Garden patterned paper to about 4″ x 5.25″ and adhered it to ocean tides A2 card base.


I trimmed some jute burlap and adhered the carte postale stamped image on it, then adhered it at an angle on the card front. I added some Prima decorative trim and melon berry twill tape (tied in a bow). I die cut a tiny tag and stamped “Mom” on the tag. The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink’s tiny tags stamp set. Please note, technically, I added the ribbon before attaching it to the card front. After adding distress ink to the tag, I attached it to the ribbon knot using a DeNami Design sand button and May Arts twine. Next, I stamped the flower using the same ink and paper, cut it out, and inked the edges. I adhered it to the card front using foam adhesive.

I also die cut a postage stamp and stamped the images in ocean tides ink on vintage cream cardstock. I inked it up and adhered it to the carte postale image.



I hope you all are enjoying your week so far! There’s only one more day left until another “wonderful weekend!”
