VINTAGE COTTAGE GARDEN!

I had time to stamp for myself the other day which was so nice. I have been inspired by all the beautiful cards created with the Vintage Vogue set from the current Autumn/Winter mini. As yet I haven’t got that in my collection, so I played around with what I had. Here is the end result.  WARNING:  Anyone with an aversion to pink (*Lynda*) should look away now!!!

I stamped the leaf from “Fresh Cuts” in Pretty in Pink around the edge of Whisper White card and then sponged the edges.  I did the same with a smaller piece of Whisper White.  On this piece I stamped the words from Cottage Garden in Rose Red.  I inked up the Sanded background in Pretty in Pink ink and kissed the solid flower from Cottage Garden set.  This gave a different effect to the flower.  I inked up the small flowers in Rose Red and cut the larger one out and adhered this to the centre of the flower.  I raised up the flowers with mounting tape.  With the ribbon I adhered sticky strip along a strip of white card and ruffled up the Rose Red grosgrain ribbon onto it.  I added some glue dots on the outside to help hold it into place.  I then adhered the strip onto the card.  I did the ribbon separately as I was a bit worried about messing up the whole card if I got the ribbon stuck on wrong.  You could stick it straight on if you were feeling brave!!

Here is a close-up of the flowers.

To finish off, the inside:

I hope you like my version!!

Happy Stamping!  🙂
