The Stampin' Schach Design Tips: Easy VintageThis card measures 4-1/4" wide x 5-1/2" long.
When creating in a quick and easy vintage style, look for details that exemplify vintage, but can be completed quickly!
- A Beautiful Bow! Very Vanilla Seam Binding was colored a coordinating Poppy Parade color using a Stampin' Write Marker.
- Pretty Pearls! Stampin' Up!'s Basic Pearls can be easily colored using permanent markers, allowing them coordinate with your Designer Series Papers.
- A Flagged Sentiment! I take the easy way out and just free-snip a "V" shaped notch into the ends of the sentiment banner when making flagged sentiments. They do not have to be perfect for vintage. But if you are not confident in your free-snipping skills, just use a square punch! For this card, I inked up the "Happiness" sentiment from Loving Thoughts with Poppy Parade ink.
- Faux Brocade! Stamping directly onto textured card stock adds a fabulous "Faux Brocade" look! Don't you just love the look of the stylized Flowers from the Fresh Vintage stamp set when stamped onto textured Very Vanilla card stock! Of course, a few Basic Pearls are always "pearl-fect" for this image!
