My First Vintage

The OCCC challenge for this week was to do a card in Vintage style. I’ve never tried vintage before. I even had to do a bit of research to figure out the common elements of Vintage style. In the end, I was surprised to find out that I LOVED this style!

I thought this vintage style would be a good match for my new Shepard Snow Family set from FireCracker Designs by Pamela. Don't you love those snowmen! I used the sketch from Mojo111 (upside down).

Stamps: Shepard Snow Family by FireCracker Designs by Pamela
Paper: Very Vanilla, Riding Hood Red, Creamy Caramel, Chocolate Chip, Basic Grey Wassail DP
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Creamy Caramel
Accessories: Copics, Martha Stewart snowflake punch, ¼” circle punch, Martha Stewart Scallop dot punch (for the small circles), Textile Texure embossing folder

Oh WOW Michelle!! Your card is gorgeous! The colours are so warm and cosy. Kind of reminds me of flocked velvet wallpaper the way you did the colour with the Textile ef. I really LOVE the vintage look. It's amazing how you just turn your hand to any type of cardmaking, and blow me away everytime with the results.
