The challenge this week at Heart 2 Heart Challenges is to create a Vintage inspired project. I made some birthday cards recently with this style of card and loved them! So I thought I would turn it sideways, add a little pop-up feature and create a retirement card for a former school colleague and friend.
I used the new Florence paper collection on a base of Flaxen cardstock. To give it a more vintage look, I inked the edges of all the papers with Cocoa ink and distressed the edges with my Zutter electric Distrezz-It-All. I embellished the card with a zip strip, flowers that I fussy cut from the patterned paper and sequins that coordinate with the Florence paper.
