Vintage style card


I always struggle when making Vintage style cards, but I decided to play with some ideas to see what I could come up with.  This stamp is from Coronado Island.  I bought it several years ago, but never used it until today.  I stamped the image onto GP 110# white card stock with Versafine black ink.  Let dry, then cut out image and background layer with Spellbinders Card Creators dies.  Punched the flowers, leaves and fancy corners on the black layer with EK Success punches.  Embossed the white background layer with the Darice Flur de lis folder.  Added some lace plus gems and pearls to the flowers and corners.  Attached image to card base with pop dots.  This is way out of my comfort zone, but it's fun to try out different styles every so often.
