New Challenge #166 ‘Vintage’ plus a Sentiment

with No Comments

Hello everyone, this is a post for the new challenge at Aud Sentiments Challenge Blog. The theme this week is to create a ‘Vintage card plus a sentiment’. I hope you join in on the fun!



The sponsor for this weeks’ challenge is My Artistic Adventure. The image that I used is called Beautiful Vintage Framed Woman and you can get it here.

I made a few different designs this week, and I wasn’t sure which one I loved more, so I decided to share them all!


The digital paper comes with four different framed women. To make this card I enlarged the size of the frames, and printed it onto some heavy weight cardstock. I fussy cut around the edges and then used some distress inks to try to remove any white showing on the edge of the frame. The distressed vintage paper background was created with Distress inks in walnut stain, antique linen and vintage photo. The roses are from Altenew called ‘Vintage Roses’ and they were stamped with three color theory inks called Poppy, Well Red, and Brick House. The thank you sentiment is from the digital paper pack, from My Artistic Adventure.


This image shows exactly how the four framed women come on the paper without any manipulation. This was easy to print off, and die cut with a stitched border and apply distress inks. The sentiment paper this time I also blended the inks on to make sure all of the papers matched.


For my last vintage card I went in search of a doily to really add some texture. All I had on hand were heart shaped doilies, so I had to cut it and attach it together, which I am hoping you cannot tell on the card! This card might be my favourite because of how feminine it looks. I used the same vintage rose stamp from Altenew, and the same three Distress Inks.

I hope you enjoyed my cards for the challenge today, and be sure to check out the challenge blog here, and My Artistic Adventures here.

See you in a few weeks for another challenge!
