Well, this card turned out to be a very pleasant surprise. Yellow is my least favorite color. It really isn't. This is a vintage valentine image from a K&Company paper stack I found at Michaels. I have never really worked with Vintage images before, but after seeing some amazing cards using them lately, I was really inspired to seek some out and give them a try! In the Cricut Circle, Cindy Royal (one of the blog designers) has really created some incredible cards and I just had to scraplift some ideas and try my own.
For this card, I used all papers from the K&Company stack except for the golden colored solids I used. This is a die cut vintage image. I used a rounded punch on the picture (as well as everything else) and simply cut the mats and then the corners. The white heart is a simple paper doily I found at Michaels. Out of the entire craft room, this is the one piece of golden yellow ribbon I had. Let's hear it for Target's Dollar Ribbon Sets. Hee! Hee! The hearts were punched using a Martha Stewart Heart punch from a heart covered paper in the stack.
The roses on this card are actually ribbon roses and the leaves are some mini-silk rose leaves. It's kind of old school, but I thought it really worked with the vintage feel and color scheme of the card.
The inside is cut the same way. Ok... Are you ready for this? I finished the card, shot the picture, got the images ready to post and then realized... There are no Cricut cuts in this card. What's the matter with me?!? I always use the Cricut, so if you recreate this card, use your cricut to cut your mats. Then I won't feel like a fake! Hee! Hee! Thanks so much for visiting today! We look forward to the next visit!
