V is for Vintage
When I first started cardmaking my passion was vintage style cards, especially the Art Deco period and I couldn't understand the fascination with 'cute' at all. Oh, how we change!
Since becoming 'hooked' with cute images, I hardly ever manage to make vintage any more and I do find myself missing it, even more so since fellow DT buddy Daniele joined Sketch n Stash (if you haven't seen her gorgeous vintage cards, do take a look!)
Anyway, long story short, I decided to make a vintage card for a change and luckily, I found that it even fits a few challenges, so here they are:
Raise The Bar - A Valentine card with no pink or red
One Stop Craft Challenge - Love is in the Air
Crafty Calendar Challenge - Love
Paper Sundaes - Pick Your Topping (I've used flowers and lace)
The Shabby Tea Room - Keeping Warm (colour inspiration)
I really enjoyed this, in fact I think you can expect to see lots more vintage style cards in the future (as well as the cuties, not instead of) I hope you like it too?
