As I pondered what to do with my fun and wonderful Dimestore Vogue kit, I decided to make a card. Now this may not seem like a big deal, except that I DONT DO CARDS! I struggle to work in the size of a card which honestly makes no sense, as I do Artist Trading Cards and can work in a 2.5 x 3.5 space. Then there is the 12 x 12 space that I find no problem with. So why the hard time with cards?
Not sure, but I have to tell you I am working on it. So I have my dimestore vogue kit in my hands. Take a look at this lovely kit:
And the first thing that sticks out for me is the girls on the package. It made my fingers itch to cut them. I just know Michelle and Allison put them there just for me, like a kid, I love to play with the packaging. I eventually got to the goodies inside, really!
Ok, so as I am making a card there must be a reason or a recipient, right? Well, atleast I think so, I am new at this card thing. So what better recipient(s) than the ladies and their families at Vintage Street Market!
So here you go ladies, it is already in the mail!
I used the stamps from Vintage Treasures at The Rubber Cafe and made my own patterned paper, I also used them on the crepe paper peeking out the bottom of the card. I love to layer so lots of elements are popping off the card including the vintage lady and buttons! What a fun kit to play with, keep an eye out though I am working on a very big project…coming soon!
