Vintage Floral


Eyelet Outlet products form a beautiful focal point for today's card. This pad of designer paper has so many lovely patterns, and the color combination is soft and elegant, so it inspired an elegant vintage layout for this project.


The grey-blue, sage green, kraft, and dark rose pink of the papers are echoed in the vintage washi tapegold pearl swirl blingenamel dot flower center, and in the paper flower leaves and petals.  A light sponging of the leaves and flower petals with silver ink helped to mute the colors and match the hazy, softer colors of the flowers in the background.  


Inside, there's another strip of washi tape.  A splattering of Finetec silver metallic watercolor inside and out brings even more sparkle.  
I like having my holidays one at a time, so I'm not completely ready to stamp Valentines just yet since Christmas is not quite here!  This card is a way to make a soft transition from one holiday to the next!

Happy holidays, everyone!

    1. The floral design is part of the pattern of the designer paper. I only tore the paper edges, sponged them with distress ink, then added the paper flowers, jewel bling, washi tape, and splatters of silver metallic watercolor. No stamping at all.

  3. Your card is so pretty! I love the soft shimmer and sweet romantic patterns It really makes a card look so much nicer to have the design repeated inside. Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful work! :)
