Mocha Morning Vintage Style

Here is another of our card class creations from Saturday. I knew several of my card class regular ladies had fallen in love with the Forever Young stamp set, so I set about giving them a bit of inspiration for the set. This card was inspired by a vintage Valentines Card I had spotted over on Splitcoast Stampers. I loved the use of the frame and portrait but also wanted to include the gorgeous tree and swinging girl image. A perfect opportunity to layer the scalloped circles from the Perfect Pennants die over the gorgeous crochet trim and Mocha Morning papers. The colours I've used for this antique-y vintage card are: Soft Suede, Very Vanilla and Early Espresso. I finished the card off with various sized Basic Pearls to give it that extra bit of aged elegance.

If you would like any further info on any of these items or on how to make this card please get in touch, I'd be only too happy to assist with anything Stampin' Up! This again, like yesterdays card, uses products only available in the current Spring Mini catalogue. This is only available until April 30th so make the most of these exclusive items and place your order today (and take advantage of last minute Sale-A-Bration freebies too).

I am on the final countdown at work this week. I have had to reduce my hours a bit due to pregnancy induced high blood pressure. It is an exciting time but I'm a bit terrified at the same time too. I've worked constantly since leaving Uni so all of a sudden having time on my hands is going to be strange (but that said, I've only got a few weeks in which to fill my days with crafting and putting my feet up as little Miss will be here soon enough).

Hope your week is treating you well. Happy Crafting ;0)
