Let’s Drink Some Tea

Hello friends,

Hope you are well and thanks for visiting. I have a vintage/shabby card to share with you today. I used some of my new craft purchases I made from a recent craft show that was held in Kempton park. The tiny leaves,  I so much love to use on my cards, were punched with my new Olba multipunch. I am really glad that I invested in one of these punches and I think this was the spark for my mojo again! The tag was cut with a new Sizzix Framelits die and the background paper embossed with a Cuttlebug embossing folder “Wicker Weave” . The lovely vintage image is from the Clearly Vintage blog and it is always a difficult decision to choose an image from Cora’s beautiful collection. I created the card with a few challenges in mind, so here is my list.

Challenges:

A close-up of the image from the Clearly Vintage blog 

 

A peep at the inside  with an embossed border and butterflies


Project details:

  • White, pink and green cardstock
  • Vintage image from Clearly Vintage
  • Lili of the Valley sentiment stamp
  • Paper doily
  • Sizzix Framelits die “Fancy tags”  (657911)
  • Cuttlebug embossing folder “Wicker Weave”
  • Olba flower-multipunch
  • Martha Stewart punch “Classic Butterfly”
  • Pearls
  • Lace
  • Pearl heart
  • Paper roses from Wild Orchid Crafts
  • Hug Snug seam binding “Paradise Aqua”
  • Tim Holtz distress inks “Victorian velvet” and “Vintage photo”
  • Skwiglues glitter “Crystal”

Thanks so much for looking at my card and I would love to read what you think about it. Have a  wonderful day and happy crafting.

Regards from South Africa,

Amelia

    Hi Amelia. Pragtige kaartjie, die blaartjies is so fyn en delikaat! Ek is al ‘n geruime tyd bietjie uit aksie……erge depressie en toe griep! Hoop jy is weer op die been na die operasie? Liefde Karien
