Emily from Crafts and Me

Hi everyone, I'm here today with a card that I have made for Live and Love Crafts, Teresa at Crafts And Me has generously given each of the DT a Vintage Image to work with, I have chosen the gorgeous Emily.

I've used Go Kreate dies to cut the large card shape, the papers are the scrummy Limited Edition Sofiero from Maja Design, the edges have both been distressed with a Tim Holtz tool and also with Walnut Stain Ink.

I printed the image out onto 6x4 photo paper, and then cut it with the floral ovals die, I cut along the dotted lines, and then used Bazzill to cut the same shape again. I distressed the edges around the image as my cutting skills aren't brilliant, lol.

The roses are from my stash, I've used cream hortensias, these are great for filling little gaps in your flowers.

  8. Thanks for accepting the challenge. Well maybe it wasn't that much of a challenge; after all you've worked with vintage images in the past, but it's always fun seeing you do something out of the ordinary. This card came together really well, beautiful composition and bautiful image! Sandy xx
