Hi everyone! I am a veterinary technician living in NY who loves to pen pal and make cards in my spare time. I have never been good at crafts since I can barely draw a straight line with a ruler but I was determined to give it a go.  I love learning all the different techniques and ways to craft. Follow me on my journey as I grow as a card maker!

First Vintage Card

Hey everyone! Today I have my first ever handmade vintage card to share with you.  I admit I was a bit nervous because I wasn't sure if I "knew" how to make one but I didn't let them stop me from trying.  I got this elegant image from DAZZLING-ACE-DESIGNS. I love the images that Suzy has to offer! I die cut and matted the image and back paper. I used ribbon and papers from my stash.  The papers were slightly distressed with the Tim Holtz tool and inked with old paper distress stain. I added leaves from a MS punch and a cute flower.  Some stickles were added to the flower for extra glitz.  I am very excited to have used some dies and stamps from My Creative Time that I recently bought.  I am in love with their products and will be getting more.  I die cut and stamped the ticket.  I also added a die cut banner.  I realized after that I should have made the banner a different color as it really blends in with the other paper.  We learn as we go, right? Overall I am very pleased with this card and am looking forward to trying some more vintage themed projects.  I hope you have enjoyed my creation today.
