Vintage Vogue Birthday Card

No, I still have not put this stamp set away. I just love it and am having a lot of fun with it. It's an extremely versatile set too. It starts out as a "Friend" type set but can be used to make birthday cards, thinking of you cards, sympathy cards and get well cards.

Today I made mine into a birthday card for my sister. And it's obvious I still have not put away the "Well Scripted" set either! I know I've said this before but I just LOVE the font on this set. It's very pretty and elegant at the same time. But it's not too pretty to use on a masculine card! It's just perfect!

For the base of my card I used Basic Gray card stock. On top of that is a piece of Rich Razzleberry cut 4-1/8" x 5-3/4". The flower was stamped on a piece of Very Vanilla cut 2-1/4" x 2-1/4". The edges were sponged in Rich Razzleberry. That piece was layered on top of a piece of Basic Gray measuring 2-1/2" x 1-1/2".

The Old Olive piece was lightly stamped with the leafy image, allover the card and the edges were sponged in Old Olive as well. That piece measures 3" x 3-1/2". The Basic Gray piece behind it measures 3-1/8" x 3-5/8".

The Rich Razzleberry dotted ribbon was added before the Old Olive piece was taped in place.

I punched out a little Going Gray flower and put in the center of the large flower. I punched out a 1/4" vanilla circle and put it in the center of the little gray flower. After the photo was taken (this is when I am the most critical of my cards... somehow seeing them on the computer I see more things I could have done, should have done or should not have done!) I added a dark pink rhinestone. It is so dark that it actually looks like the Rich Razzleberry color. It really made the card look finished! And fortunately I will be hand delivering this so I won't have to pay the extra postage involved in this one.

Now I need to make one more birthday card, 2 get well cards and one thinking of you card before the end of the month! I am very behind on my cards. UGH!

Anyway, this was a fun and pretty quick card to make.

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
