This is a card I've been making a LOT of lately--at multiple workshops, Incredible Cards Club, and now two sets of 20 each of swaps. That oughtta tell you how much I like this Vintage Vogue stamp set!
This is three different incarnations, from a simpler one to a special fold with multiple stacked flowers and rhinestones. Mostly I've stuck with this combo of Mellow Moss, Very Vanilla and Elegant Eggplant, but yesterday I switched things up and made 20 with Bashful Blue as the Base and Not Quite Navy for the flowers. I'd be a toss up which one I like best!
Love the yummy Very Vanilla Hodgepodge Hardware with the new Very Vanilla Satin ribbon from the mini catalog! Something about the combination of the hard cool metal with the silky-soft satin is just a true delight for the eyes... added to Crystal Effects to make the flowers pop, and this is one of those cards you can't resist running your fingers over.
I love watching the recipient open one of those type of cards... you can see it in their eyes--it's compelling them to feel all the textures. I'm that type of person who has a hard time telling her kids to keep their hands inside the cart at the fabric store, because I myself have my hands out to run over the fabrics as we pass by...
