I don’t “do” vintage…


…but this week’s theme at 365 Cards is Vintage and today’s color is Green!  I’d love to join 365 Cards every day of the year to get a big stockpile of cards done, but in all honesty, I don’t think I will have that many ideas in my head in a lifetime, much less in a year!  One can dream though, right??  LOL

Here is my take on a Vintage card using the color green!  I know……….Christmas in August………but I’m trying to get ahead this year!


The paper is called “Vintage Christmas” by The Paper Studio.  I bought this at Hobby Lobby last year, so who knows if they’ll have it again? 

I did a little stitching with my sewing machine.  We don’t normally get along well (at all), but we got through today’s project with no hitches or glitches!  That *never* happens!  ha ha!!

I inked the edges with Tim Holtz Antique Linen ink pad and stamped my sentiment with Adirondack Raisin. 

I used my Spellbinders Grand Calibur to cut the Classic Scalloped Squares Large and the Classic Squares Large

The sentiment comes from “Hearts Come Home” and the border is out of “From Our House”.  Both sets are 2” square by JustRite

Of course, I’m linking up to 365 Cards

It's great. I did a Chrissy card last week too. Felt odd.

I love this card! Its absolutely beautiful.

And as far as Hobby Lobby having that paper still, I would almost guarantee it...mine never changes paper I swear. I love the store, just not always their selection!

I think you "do" vintage quite well, Billie! I love the look o this card. I also checked out the notebook you made for your 2-be 2nd grader! Awesome. I should decorate all my manuals that I store my unmounted stamps my spare time, of course........EEEEKKK!
