Hi Everyone, and welcome back! Today I have two lovely cards featuring the new Flea Market Finds collection from Spellbinders Paper Arts. Last week I shared adorable tags and dies featuring this collection (view that post HERE), and today I used the beautiful, jewel-toned papers layered with ephemera for these vintage-vibe cards.
I began by matting the papers on Neenah Desert Storm cardstock, and inked the edges with Distress Vintage Photo. Then it was just a matter of gathering my favorite pieces of ephemera, and layered with foam tape for extra dimension.
The floral focal point is a large sticker, and I removed the stickiness by brushing with anti-static powder. Then I popped it up with foam tape. Finally, I finished the card with a cute little twine bow.
I like to select an interesting piece of ephemera as a focal point. It doesn’t have to be a sentiment as long as it’s the star and adds interest to the card.
What do you think? I adore these lovely cards, and that they are a little different from my norm. If you junk journal, scrapbook, or make vintage-style cards, you are going to love this entire collection. Love and crafty hugs!
