This weeks Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge was “Vintage/Past Times”. While I like the look of many vintage projects, I don’t seem to be very good at it myself. This week stumped me. After days of combing through paper and waiting for inspiration to strike, I finally gave up trying and decided to just go simple. It’s so simple in fact, that the paper really does all the work here.
For this card I pulled out the DCWV Performance Stack. It really is a stunning paper collection, I just wish I could have done something more stunning with it. The gold foil accents sprinkled throughout this line is really pretty, and you know I love anything sparkly, so I chose a patterned paper that anchored the design at the bottom of the card. Then I just heat embossed a tiny sentiment on a paper strip, trimmed it and fed it through a co-ordinating ribbon.
It’s a cute card in the end, but not one I will list among my favourites.
