I absolutely adore vintage, especially images of postcards, music, etc. and so this beautiful Kaisercraft paper is a favorite! It's another one of those "almost too pretty to cover up" papers, and so I've kept the layout very simple. I used a rectangle die as a mask while inking the paper, then used that as a guideline for my machine stitching, further distressing, fraying, and tearing the edges.
One of the sheets in the paper pack is a collection of tags that can be cut apart, and I was happy that this sentiment fit perfectly into one of them. I repeated the distress ink/stitching/fraying/tearing as before, adding some silk ribbon through a grommet tag die to frame and secure the sentiment, embellishing with a tiny rose and finishing the card with a trio of pearls.
