Springtime Vintage and Just Believe


Meet Springtime Vintage Designer Paper.  This is a lovely set of 12 sheets of double sided 12" x 12" paper.  It's a very sweet set, all mini flowers and rose buds, very 1930's.  If you are not into bold patterns the opposite side is calmer and more modern.

  For this card I followed the sketch on this weeks simply stampin challenge.  Instead of the square I've used the circle stamp from Just Believe and stamped it in crumb cake, baja breeze and not quite navy.  The sentiment is from Occasional Quotes and has been punched out using the word window punch and then mounted onto baja breeze punched out with the modern label extra large punch. 

The card base is not quite navy and this card size is 6" by 6".  I cut and attached a sheet of the patterned paper slightly smaller than the card front.  The strips are crumb cake with a narrow strip of baja breeze. 


I finished off the inside with a little decoration.  Take a look at the vintage papers in the mini catalogue at only £8.75.  There's lots of additions that co-ordinate with them - stamp set, seam binding ribbon, buttons. 

Thanks for looking and Happy Crafting. x
