Vintage Elegance


I love cards with a vintage look. I recently purchased a 2003 Hero Arts stamp called Gracious Lady and decided I wanted to make a card that had a vintage and elegant appeal. I started with a black base card (5" x 7") and covered the front with a decorative paper and a coordinating decorative paper.


I stamped the lady in black and backed the image with some ivory colored and black card stock. I tied a black ribbon and bow around the card then attached the main image at the left using pop dots to raise the image. I stamped a second image and cut out only the lady. I attached her using a pop dot under the head and glued the bottom of the image flat on the card to give her dimension.
