Crafty Cardmakers Challenge 84

This Crafty Cardmakers challenge is hosted by my team-mate Kylie, and she says, 'I would like to see a challenge that incorporates "Vintage Love". Your project must be vintage and show at least one object that reminds people of love. Perhaps a picnic basket, gold locket, love letter, etc.' Here are some photos for inspiration.

I've got to say that vintage isn't my favourite style, but I raided my stash of digital images and came up with an image and paper from the Crafty Image Emporium CD which I've had for several years but used less often that I would have thought, and I came up with this:

I altered the image in Photoshop Elements, removing the background and adding one of the digital papers from the CDrom. (I had to do that to make the image fit a circular format!) I sized it for my circle nesties, added the text, and printed on glossy photo paper. I matted using a scallopped nestie, and then used one of my Christmas presents - a doily die from Cottage Cutz - and backed that with a circle cut with my Martha Stewart circle cutter.

I printed more of the same design paper, this time onto matte photo paper, and cut that, and the bits for the easel card using my circle cutter. The doily die I used cuts two separate shapes, so I've used the smaller doily on the base, and finished with a sticky gem and a locket and key die cut set.

I hope you can join us this time.
