I've found a new love..........
"self-you need to challenge yourself to make something vintage."
So that was my goal this morning. Attempt my hand at vintage and see how it goes.
It's been a long time since I've done a "quilted top note" card so I thought I could tie that in. Afterall, who doesn't love the comfort and feel of an old vintage quilt curled up around you?
So here's how you make a "quilted Top Note":
1. Punch out several squares with your square punch from various coordinating DSP and Cardstock.
For mine, I went a few extra miles. After punching the squares, I laid them out onto an embossing folder and ran them through the BIG SHOT.
For the rest of the card, I "scrunched" up some CRUMB CAKE SEAM BINDING (occasions mini), and stamped "birthday" from the stamp set FABULOUS PHRASES. I punched it all the way to the right with the MODERN LABEL PUNCH, then folded the left side over. SLid in some LINEN THREAD and tied it to the SEAM BINDING.
We won't talk about how long it took me to make this card..........it was well worth the time though!
Hope you like the card!
