Vintage Flowers and Doilies Card

Hello everyone,

Just a quick post of my latest project.


I made all the flowers using Spellbinders flower die, arranged them ontop of two doilies and a piece of vintage style patterned cardstock.


Majority of the flowers were distressed with Old Paper Distress Ink...


Some of the flowers were attached to the card with extra foam adhesive to give that dimensional look...


I added some bling that peaks underneath the cluster of flowers...

I am entering this card into following challenges:

Artisant Spring Challenge

Frilly and Funkie Challenge "Bring On The Bling"

Scrap & Craft Inspiration Challenge #5 "Flowers"

and

Vintage Utfordring #98 "Doily"

I hope you enjoyed this post...
Have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by...

    2. It is!!! I hope the recipient of this card does the same. This one should definitely be framed or at least displayed on a shelf that everybody could see it.

  7. What a lovely bouquet and such pretty colors. The pearls and lace are the perfect compliment. I just received my first distress ink marker and I ordered the color used here - Old Paper which I've never tried before. I was disappointed in the color because it is a light green and not what I expected. Your flowers are the color I was hoping for.

    1. Yes, that ink is also kinda green, I only inked edges of some flowers, the ones that have darker edges are distressed with it. I am glad you like my card:)
