Vintage Eisle Card...

Hey Ya'll,
I have a Vintage card to share with you today continuing my Graphic 45 Fashionista cards.  This card was really a lot of fun to create.  It's a 6x6 eisle card.  I cut a flower shape using CTMH AP for the top.  One in craft paper and one in patterned paper from this collection.  I then cut them in half with a straight cutter so that I had two of the same shapes for two different cards.  I used several coordinating papers from this collection.  The lady on the left is hand cut with a craft knife.  The Happy Birthday is cut with a craft knife as well.  It's stamped with an old CTMH stamp set called Gracious Greetings with Cranberry Ink.  For the red strip, I cut a strip from scraps and then punched it with a Martha Stewart Border Punch.  The flower and flourishes are from CTMH AP and I also added a few buttons and a piece from the punch out shapes in the back of the collection.
 I also added a strip of beaded lace across the top to add to it.  There are a couple of rectangle shapes on the bottom of the inside mat for the card to stand up with.  For the picture, I showed the blank sentiment mat on the inside.  The entire card is inked with black in.
I was so excited with the way this card turned out.  I hope you enjoyed it too.  I would love to hear your comments!  Thanks so much for visiting today!
