Hi All, Nupur here
I have been trying my hands in card making since a month or two, and I can tell you… its addictive!
This time I decided to make a card for my brother for Rakhi. I had no clue what will I make, but was sure that I want to make something vintage.
And besides that, I knew that Itsy Bitsy’s own brand Little Birdie has recently launched thin cut dies which will surely help me! They are super awesome!!
Below is an image of what I finally managed to create.
Now, lets get started!
I bought some cardstocks from Itsy Bitsy clearance sale (not some.. actually lots…LOL)
First, I took a brown card.
Distressed it from the sides to give it a vintage look.
Then I selected a pattern paper from Little Birdie’s Vintage Reflections scrapbooking paper pack and distressed its edges as well.
Thereafter, with the glue, I stuck these two papers together and added a burlap roll. With a wooden printing block I added some designs on the side.
Now I decided to add some colors. So, I used the newly launched thin cut dies with different shades of green and some pink and white.
Using my die cutting machine and the thin cut dies, I cut the pieces shown in the image below.
Next, I arranged them in my card and added rhinestones to my flowers. How can a project be complete without some pretty handmade flowers from Little Birdie? To enhance my card, I picked some cute flowers and added them to my composition.
To give it a further 3-D effect, I added another layer of basket (die cut).
Now with another thin die cut, I decided to make a frame and paste a childhood photo of me and my brother (the photo is not clear though as I took a printout). I added a sentiment which I picked up during a sale at Itsy Bitsy.
Added another homemade sentiment near the basket.
To perk it up a little, I added a burlap knot on the basket and the corners.
And yes my card was ready for gifting!
Let me know how do you liked my card. I wanted to give it a vintage look, and guess have managed to do so.
Will meet soon….Till then happy crafting….. 🙂
Things I used for making this card:
And I used different types of colored papers which I got from the store and cardstock, sentiments and burlap knot (which I bought from the clearance sale) and of course glue stick and silicon glue.
