*Forever*


Hello Friends! Today I'd like to invite you to join us at Card Crafter's Circle for our vintage challenge.  This week we are being sponsored by the wonderful Floppy Lattes Designs and the prize is a $6 gift certificate for their store!


For my card I have been given this wonderful silhouette image called Summer Party.  I've coloured her hat and cut her out with my oval cutter and then layered it over some cardstock with an edge cut with my decorative scissors.  As a final touch I covered it with my crystal glaze accent glue to create a type of cameo feel.  I placed this over some wonderful papers by K& Company and added a strip of crocheted lace and ribbon.  The tag-forever is from the paper pad and then I added three crocheted flowers with buttons to finish it all off.
I used the word forever since, the wonderful vintage looks that we enjoy seem to hang in time and those dear to us...well, they are forever in our hearts!
I've also finished up the inside with some more of these lovely papers and a free sentiment from Sharon at A Piece of Heart blog.  Do pop over to see her wonderful creations!


Do you love vintage? Or would you love to have a go at it? We'd love to see what you create! Come join us at the Card Crafter's Circle!

Jennifer, this is beautiful! I love the crochet flowers...I am trying to teach myself to make them because they are so expensive to buy!

Beautiful, beautiful card! I so like the colors you've used, and I must copy down that sentiment. It is lovely. Your crocheted doilies are the perfect touch for this vintage card. You really hit the nail straight on with this one.

Jennifer, i so love your card it's very pretty and "vintage-y" I enjoy seeing your flowers that you crochet. Have you tried the "crocheen" thread? It's thinner and i think you would like using it.
