A Wish For You - Vintage Style

Hi Everyone! Hope you are all having a lovely weekend!
A vintage style card today as I haven't done one like this for some time.  I have to admit that when I started this one, I nearly didn't complete it, but I continued with it and was really pleased with the end result!



Card Size: 14.5cm x 11cm
Instructions:
Stamp the image onto a page front from the Antiquity Paper Collection using Aged Mahogany Ink. (I used the same one as used for the card front).  Allow the ink to dry and apply 3D clear gloss finish, using a paintbrush to smooth it out (work quickly as it start to dry).  Allow to dry.  Die cut  using a circle die.  Then die cut two more circles using paper from the collection and distress/roughen the edges using your scissors. Layer these pieces together using foam pads.  Cut a card blank from dark brown card to measure 14.5cm x 11cm.  Cut down a floral matching paper from the collection to measure 13.5cm x 10.5cm and adhere to the card front with double sided tape.  Cut out the card front from the collection and add a matte of dark brown cardstock.  Add this to the card front along with the sentiment.  Die cut 4 flowers, 1 large from dark brown card and 3 smaller ones using the same papers as before.  Fold and create the flowers securing with a brad. Create 3 holes to the left of the sentiment.  Secure the flowers into place using the brads.  Create a small bow from some natural cord and glue into place with the flower on top.

The products used can be found on the Heartfelt Creations blog, along with more ideas and inspiration from the design team.
Thanks for visiting me today,
