I don’t think it is possible to create a bad looking card with the Vintage Vogue stamp set.
I am having a lot of fun stamping flowers, both little and big, cutting them out and positioning them on the card. Add a greeting, embellish and you are good to go. Remember this card from earlier this month? Same idea, new colours, different card. Woo Hoo!
I stamped the little flower from Vintage Vogue in Real Red and Basic Black ink and cut them out. With a mini glue dot, I added the smallest white pearl from the Pretties Kit to the center or each flower.
Next, I stamped the greeting and the vine image onto Whisper White cardstock with Basic Black ink. Between the two stamped images, I adhered a 1-1/2" strip of the Bride Specialty paper. Love this paper! Lastly, I added a length of the Whisper White Organza ribbon with the Basic Black Grosgrain ribbon on top. Can you see the knot in the grosgrain? Sometimes a bow is just too much and a knot is a great alternative. Assemble the card by adhering the card front to the Basic Black card and the card is finished. It really didn’t take long at all.
