My photo

Hey all my name is Samantha, I'm 33 from England. Engaged. I have been handcrafting cards since I can remember from making mothers day cards at nursery to selling them to friends and family now. I love seeing the reactions on peoples faces when you make a unique handcrafted card just for them. I have also been a keen scrapbooker/photographer since I was about 5 when my parents started to foster and I always kept a scrapbook for each child we cared for - which goes with them to their new families so they don’t forget any precious memories of their childhood.

Vintage Birthday Card

This was a quick card I made last night for Adams Nan's Birthday which annoyingly he told me the wrong date and it was actually the day before so I sent it anyway late card is better than none I suppose!

I used:
Kraft Card
I am not 100% sure but I think this cherry and red paper is Websters
Olive Ribbon
Vintage cream lace
Red Buttons
Mini music paper rub-on
 I pretty much inked and roughed up the edges of everything on this card to make it look old. I used Chestnut Roan and Tim Holtz Old Paper Distressing ink.
 I stamped a little Birthday greeting in the bottom of the photo in Chestnut Roan chalk ink.
Inside of the card I had a few scraps left so I put them on the inside I normally only put a white insert but this looks so much better!

Here is the image if anyone was wanting a copy.
Thanks all for taking the time to have a look.

What a lovely vintage card and thanks for the image too, I think I have a Euphoria book somewhere with images similar to this! I must have a rummage to find it.
