And the current challenge for Cardvaarks could possibly help make one of those dreams come true! The challenge is to make a wedding card. The prize? The winner's card will be published in the July, 2010 issue of CARDS Magazine!!!
Yep, THAT magazine! And of course I had to go for it - how often does such a wonderful opportunity come along? So, here is my wedding card for this challenge . . .
I wanted a vintagey look, and my jumping off point was the lace. That is one piece of vintage lace that was in with some fabric my mother gave me. I would guess the age is somewhere between the late 1950's to late 1960's. It is aged and even stained a bit, but I think that adds to the vintage charm. The lace is a little over 2 1/4 inch from tip to tip of the hearts. Here's all the info . . .
- Base cardstock, and tan cardstock for scrolls are from my stash and they didn't have labels on the pieces.
- Patterned paper is K & Company Blue Awning Ivory Medallion Swirls Flat Paper. I inked the edges with some brown pigment ink.
- Vintage lace from my stash
