Vintage Florals - House of Cards

Hello, and welcome to my post for this month's challenge at House of Cards: Use a Punch and/or Die. It's time for us, the Vintage & Shabby team, to share our cards!

I created a vintage card using some beautiful dies. I also worked with a color combination I haven't used in a while: peach, beige and green.




The floral paper is the soul of this card. I actually used a digital paper I designed called Floral Frames 5, printed on linen cardstock. I love how the vintage florals look! I layered three different labels on the side of the card and cut the edges remainding outside the card base. I embellished the card with 3/8" cream gross grain ribbon, pearls, crystals and a gold vintage button.

Dreaming of a White Christmas
gilded & elegant christmas card

I have a confession to make... This year I've been drawn to make white and gold Christmas cards. I can't even think of traditional Christmas colors when I want to make a project! So today's poinsettia card and tutorial translate very well what Christmas is gonna be like this December at home.

White and gold look so elegant together! Since the holidays are all about sparkle too, I used one of my favorite glitter techniques and I'm sharing a quick and easy tutorial with youHERE.


I created the background myself, layering snowflake stamps in different designs, first in a very light beige, then in gold embossing. Afterwards, I dry embossed the stamped mat with a sutile polka dot design and used a brayer to apply light beige paint to the raised pattern.

As for the very layered and beautiful center of the card, I started out with an intricate die cut (see tutorial HERE) and continued building layers, with large snowflake die cuts and finally with a large handmade poinsettia …

Today I'm using stamps from -You are Loved-. I couldn't resist foiling this romantic rose on vellum. To give the card a soft contrast I used one of the new watercolor Deco Foil, that actually has different tones of lilac and purple allowing the image to really glow and stand out. I colored the back of the vellum with magenta using a Spectrum Noir alcohol marker.

The sentiment was also foiled on whi…
