I love “just because” kinds of cards-don’t you?
I always try to keep a stash of these “plain” (non-greeting) types of cards on hand for those occasions that seem to just pop up. I keep a variety of styles, and when the occasion presents itself, I can select the most appropriate style, add a greeting and send it on its way. Its still thoughtful and personal, and cards are more likely to arrive on time! 🙂
The new Family Fun Collection is perfect for these types of all purpose cards (masculine and feminine)!
For this card, I kept the focus on color and texture, and went for a neutral background to make those elements stand out. The layered vintage lace adds a nice backdrop and the foil (from Party Games) complements the lady’s dress perfectly. A border punch creates the lace effect in the foil and Maraschino bakers twine reinforces the vintage feel. Super easy, and the contrast is great!
And who doesn’t like cute little vintage buttons? 🙂
The vintage lady herself comes from the Family Fashion Accessory Kit. I simply trimmed her out, and attached her to the face of the card with foam squares.
I can see this one being a great go-to card. Hmmm….I better make more!
Have a great day and get crafty!
