Vintage Book Fold

 Morniong and 1st June and I have 3 posts today the second one is for a Guest Designer spot at Scrapping4Fun and the challenge is Ocean/Water

I didn't have any stamps suitable so sorted through my digi folders and found these Vintage images and sentiment which were freebies from TLC a few years ago.

I made two book fold cards and glued them together like a little min album,put the sentiment on the front with 3-D foam pads and a fabric flower which I found when looking for a little button to add to the bow all from stash.

The backing paper I made with a background stamp and distress inks and it reminded me of little rocks in water so thought perfect-and already claimed lol.

Oh wow, this looks amazing. Gorgeous images and, you are right, the backing does look like pebbles and ties every togother. The layouts look fabulous.

Mandy said...

Carol this is so pretty and a great way of using your digital images. I rarely use vintage elements myself and always admire talented crafters like you who seem to out these projects together with ease.

Sorry I have not been around for the last few months. Life has got in the way and I am hoping it will settle down sooner rather than later....

Thank you very much for entering your lovely card into our challenge. Good luck with the prize draw.

Stay healthy, happy, keep crafting and Creating Joy :)
