Hello there 😉

Today I have been struggling a bit before deciding which kind of card I wanted to create. At the end, I could not choose so I have created two sets. I have been made aware I should also give a bit more insights about HOW I create my cards so here we go 😉

Vintage Card “Von Herzen”

FullSizeRender

The base card is from a Vintage package I have found by VBS Hobby Versand through Amazon, very advantageous pack with lots of content, tags, envelopes, etc.

This is the basic square card of the pack, which I have matted and layered with an art paper from Bringmann, the Vintage Collection (Folia 47549). 

The second layer is some scrap paper I have found on the back of an edition of Daphne Diary’s, which is by the way a very good source if you look for nice crafting ideas 😉

The second and the original vintage paper have been embossed with this border from Sizzix (which I don’t know the reference of, sorry about that :-/)

Emboss border

The same operation has been repeated on the inside and the outside of the card.

The outside of the card has however obviously received a bit more effects:

  • I have created with the biggest of the Spellbinders Frame two Die Cuts two shapes of the same format, one in a tag from the vintage paper package, one in the paper from Daphne Diary’s, and glue them together with a little glitch to give dimension.
  • The upper die cut has been stamped and heat embossed with a heat gun and a dark brown color. (the Embossing powder is clear though)
  • with one of the basic shapes delivered with my Big Shot (Die Cutting Machine from Sizzix), I have created two butterflies, with alternate papers, glued upon each other and decorate those with glitters.
  • the flowers on this card and my cards in general are coming from WildOrchidCrafts which is absolutely my favorite for flowers, amazing quality, very decent prices, rapid delivery, a dream !!

Should you have any further question about this specific card, please drop me an email 😉

I hope you like it 🙂

P.S: “Von Herzen” means in German something like “With all our heart”.
