The main decoration on this card is actually the tag that I made from scratch. It measures 5.5″ x 3″. I stamped background images with pigment ink in pearlescent beige and pink, and when I distressed the tag, those images blurred a bit adding more to that vintage look. The flowers where heat embossed and then colored with Spectrum Noir markers. The post card and ticket stamps were also heat embossed, because I wanted it to stand out. The lovely vintage ticket stamp was actually part of a very large 6″ x 6″ background stamp, that I cut as a single. And to finish this tag I punched a heart instead of the regular eyelet and embellished it with fused string pearl beads and crystals.
The base of this card consists of two half layers, patterned paper on one side and metallic paper on the other. I distressed both their edges manually. Finally, I couldn’t resist adding ribbon to completely finish the aged look.
I absolutely love vintage cards. I hope you like it as much as I do. Have a good weekend and stay creative.
