For the LOVE of PAPER!!!

Vintage Birthday

Today's card is a vintage birthday card for my friend's mom, inspired by her love of vintage and the latest Getting Cricky Challenge.   It's hard for me to pull off these kinds of cards because I don't normally like the vintage look but, I was really pleased with the way this turned out. 

The paper and charm are from the Bo Bunny Gabrielle collection.   The charm is mounted on a frame cut from Lacy Labels at 3" for the pink and cream layers and then 3 1/4" for the black bottom layer that I also inked up a little with white.

The grey lace ribbon is hemtape that I hand pleated and added some added hat pins.   The sentiment is from Fiskars.

I used the same papers inside along with a strip of the hemtape and a Scrappy Cat sentiment. 


  1. I just absolutely LOVE this card!!!!!!!!! It's perfect!

  2. Beautiful card, the charm is awesome!
