Hi and Good Morning everyone - Alison here today :) We have a fab challenge theme of Vintage this week and already some really gorgeous entries so far. Cheery Lynn have some beautiful and very elegant dies which are perfect for a vintage creation, and I really enjoyed making this style of card.
I started off with an 8 x 8 inch blank card base, so this is quite big. I layered HOTP papers onto Kraft card and pale cream bazzill card, and the same cardstock was used for cutting all the dies.
I used the wonderful Sophia's Heart doily die for the background and the border lace is the stunning Anastasia Border. I added the Fanciful Flourish die to the side panel and then matted my vintage photograph using Oval scalloped and stacker dies. I tucked just one from the set of 3 Lace Deco Corners around the edges of the picture and added some pearls.
The bottom right hand corner uses Victorian Romance Flourish. This was the first Cheery Lynn die I ever bought and still remains one of my favourites. I made some baby's breath flower stems (these were soooo easy!), and the larger white flowers were again nicked out of my pot pourri bowl! :D lol.
All dies used on this card are:
Lace Corner Deco H
Lace Corner Deco B
Scalloped oval stacker
Exotic Butterflies Small #2
Exotic Butterflies - Small
Victorian Romance Flourish
Embellishment #2 - Baby's Breath
Rose Leaf Strip
I hope you find time to enter our challenge this week, I love looking at all the creative ways everyone interprets the challenges and uses these dies, its such a pleasure. Dont forget, there is also daily inspiration from the other talented members of the DT over on our Cheery Lynn Designs Inspiration Blog, so check back often :)
Have a smashing week, and thanks so much for visiting today.
